SALON REAL / VIRTUAL

a new gallery concept real vs virtual


https://linktr.ee/Salon_Real_Virtual


The gallery owner Michaela Stock juxtaposes the classic white cube with the concept of the gallery as a forum for discussions about a virtually staged exhibition and at the same time questions it. The focus will be on a new perception of the exhibition space and the artworks displayed.

Both the space and the exhibited contents will be presented and thematized in a new way. In the future, presentations of current, contemporary positions from the fields of visual arts, architecture and literature are planned on a monthly basis. Michaela Stock is concerned with a stronger interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art, both in theory and in production. Fireside chats with experts from various disciplines complete the virtual exhibition.


SALON REAL

As soon as gallery visitors enter the first exhibition space, called SALON REAL, nothing reminds of a gallery space anymore. Insight you will find a cozy living room with sofa, carpet, curtains, and a fireplace. The entire interior reminds us of a Salon at the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Then and now, the salon is a social meeting point for intellectuals, business leaders and artists. In the future, in addition to the virtual exhibitions, "Fireside Chats" with artists, curators, collectors and scientists from various disciplines will take place here. Two fireside chats are planned per virtual exhibition. These fireside chats are documented on video and you can watch them on our "YouTube channel" at a later date.


Virtual exhibitions are documented in the form of printed information brochures, which are offered for free. At the same time, art lovers can purchase a limited and signed art poster from each exhibition.

SALON VIRTUAL


Next to the SALON REAL - in the second room of the gallery - is the SALON VIRTUAL located. Michaela Stock pursues the idea of including a virtual gallery in the real, empty gallery space in order to develop instruments on the one hand that connect the real and virtual space on the one hand and to fuse the digital and real worlds on the other. In the SALON VIRTUAL no more real artworks will be presented. Visitors explore the exhibition and artworks via the screen with a joystick. Although the visitors are still in the real gallery space, the exhibition is received virtually, in the "anonymous" white cube. The aim is to enable art lovers to visit the exhibition non-stop 24 hours a day, even from their own computer, cell phone or tablet. GUIDED STUDIO VISITS ON REQUEST


In the future, the artworks can be viewed with Michaela Stock in the artists' studio. Appointments can be made by phone +43 699 19 20 77 78.


CONCEPT

With her presentation concept Michaela Stock expands the concept of the institution gallery. The gallery acts as a cultural place with creative quality and economic sustainability in both virtual and real space. "The focus is on the interlocking of the real and virtual worlds and their combination of acoustic, visual and haptic stimuli. "My goal is to dock the real world more strongly and actively at the interface to the virtual world in order to set new approaches and work processes in motion and in this way to further develop interactive media art," comments Michaela Stock on her new gallery concept.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 3# Sandro Đukić | Road movie

    07 Nov 2020 – 14 Jan 2021

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL 3# Salon: Sandro Đukić| Road Movie 7.11. – 3.12.2020 Opening: Saturday, 7.11., 11 - 17h Timeslot every 15 min / one by one person/ come and go Two fireside chats are planned with Sandro Đukić / TBA In the third edition of Salon Real / Virtual, works by the Croatian artist Sandro Đukić are on display. As a new-media artist he always deals with co-relations of different media such as photography, video, computer-processing, storing, documentation and archiving data, that resemble reality exposed to this process of photographing and disclosing through media. In the show Road Movie the artist's gaze is not only turned inwards but also directed to what is easily overlooked to the unspectacular and his analog and digital photos become documents of the past and present moment. By doing so, he applies different layers and meanings of space. Furthermore, he refers in his work to the questions of time, durance and transience. In Salon Real Sandro Đukić shows photographs out of the series Correlation of inner images. These works demonstrates the transience of the body, relationships to other people, as well as the “inner life” of human beings and deals with the difference between image and reality, focus lies on the subjective inner reflection of the reality. The digital exhibition in Salon Virtual highlights the analogue photo series Road movie by Đukić.The monumental black and white images depicts the Icelandic landscape photographed during the artist’s residence in 1992. In order to document his adventure, Đukić took with him two disposable cameras with a small number of shots and two black and white films. Sandra Križić Roban describes his working method as follows: “Sandro’s documentation of his travels seems to have come about without a previous plan: what drives him is an obsessive and compulsive habit in which many things look similar at the first glance. This time he was concentrated on every single shot, deliberately relying on aesthetics, on the visual impressiveness of the landscape, whose lasting qualities he did not have to prove by manic, continuous shooting of almost every experienced moment. Above all, during the shooting he was interested in the exploration of a pure, reduced relation to oneself, nature, and adventure.“ It seems as if the photographs from his series profit from absence of that which characterizes cinematography, like lasting, real time and narration. Đukić`s chosen approach points to many things in the photographs we cannot see and our certainty in what we see is questioned. The naked and lonely panoramic landscape conveys a new experience of space. The spatial proportions the images are unique, nature dramatic and at first glance free of existential elements. This can be interpreted as pure existence freed from any narrative elements and knowledge. Đukić refers in the monumental images of the Icelandic landscapes directly to the context of the road movie aesthetics as a visual and intellectual point of departure and remember us of Wim Wender’s movies. His landscapes mediate certain graveness, a personal experience that cannot be retold and in front of the viewer stretches a desolate and uncommunicative terrain. The road navigates us by a singular vision of space and time, and the possible means, we might use to travel between them, which exist just outside of our present reality. This road is the space of life in Đukić`s photography of the longue durée - it is the landscape upon which the lone journeys of individual lives take place and intersect. What the viewer sees is only a desolated and uncommunicative terrain, a “floating” place where the narrative lies. Curriculum Vitae The Croatian New Media artist, Sandro Đukić studied with Đuro Seder in Zagreb, with Nan Hoover in Düsseldorf and Nam June Paik in NY. Being a New Media artist, he not only deals with the changing relationships of media such as photography and video, but also with computer-controlled mechanisms like saving, documenting and data storage of reality. He swiftly changes between the afore mentioned media - from spatial, architectonic and photographic installations and constructed films and, at the same time, creates several levels of meaning as concerns space. Đukić is primarily interested in the phenomenon of time and he tries to track down its duration and its circle. But he also explores the change of technological paradigm as well as deindustrialization. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated himself to the re-search in and of archives and the multimedia presentation thereof.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 6# Sofie Muller | Movement of the heart

    21 Mar 2021 – 05 May 2021

    21.3. – 5.5.2021 Opening: Sunday, 21.3., 11am - 3pm galerie michaela stock Sofie Muller presents Movement of the heart, an international and global project, that introduces a new series of bronze sculptures. Imposed confinement can cause feelings of anxiety and distress. To combat these feelings, Muller developed her own ritual and collected sprouted onions during spring. On these onions she wrote or carved small intentions. She sculpted hearts around them in clay or wax and casted them in bronze. During summer, Muller continued this project during an artist residence in Palazzo Monti, Brescia. Being in this area, she took the opportunity to do extensive research to Leonardo Da Vinci's anatomic sketches and his theories on the human heart. 500 years later Muller humbly follows in Da Vinci's footsteps, conducting her own research to the heart, a universal symbol worldwide. The result is a new series of 150 bronze hearts. Each heart is unique. 10 galleries from Mexico to New Zealand, from France to Austria will present this new series of hearts simultaneously on March 21, 2021, the beginning of spring. This day marks the start of spring in Europe – a time celebrating new life – and the ideal moment to send out a positive message after a year of battling Covid-19. We will present 5 hearts in Salon Real and Salon Virtual. The pandemic has heightened environmental awareness all over the world. For this reason, Sofie Muller has decided to get involved in reforestation by supporting the non-profit organization "one tree planted". For each bronze heart sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to this organization, and with each heart sold, approximately 50 new trees will be planted. We needlessly pollute the fair bosom of our mother earth, rip out her trees to feed our short sighted greed, turning our fertile earth into a sterile desert.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 7# Viktors Svikis | Candies and Stones

    27 Mar 2021 – 05 May 2021

    My mama always said, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. Forrest Gump The seventh exhibition series Salon Real / Virtual presents the latest large-scale oil paintings and drawings by Latvian artist Viktors Svikis under the title "Candies and Stones". As the exhibition title suggests, the works are seductively colorful and sweet at first glance, but upon closer inspection it is difficult to glean anything satisfying from the jumble of motifs depicted. Svikis' artistic strategy is based in particular on contrasts and psychoanalytical reflections on his previously experienced reality, which exist as such in the artist's mind in the course of the painting and drawing work process. In doing so the nature of the image and language in our society and their mutual medial relationships and demarcations are constantly questioned. Following in the footsteps of Winckelmann and Lessing, the artist addresses an old dilemma about the boundaries of painting and poetry. Although Svikis' works clearly reflect classical, painterly and drawing approaches, they are provocative with their collage-like design. In this point he appropriates the surrealist pictorial structure, allowing seemingly unrelated and alienating motifs and realities to exist on the same plane. From such a deceptive arbitrariness of motifs, patterns, and perspectives, a new, poetic narrative level of the artwork emerges. As in a surrealist dream, different pictorial levels coexist in parallel. According to the principle of dialectical thinking, Svikis' paintings and drawings live from opposites; in a field of tension between l'art pour l'art and engagement. Following his painterly impulse, Svikis strings confetti, underwear, chickens, mermaids, fish, turtles, bricks, etc. onto the canvas. He playfully and intuitively controls what is depicted during the working process. Individual themes revolve semantically around the title of the artwork, while their combinability and connection to each other leave more room for interpretation and reconstruction of the story. He develops ideas further, comes up with new stories and always over-paints. Svikis leaves it to the viewer to find his own story, because the reality of painting is not the truth. Mag. Jelena Grabovac Studio visit on request A studio visit with Viktors Svikis can be booked free of charge with the gallery owner Michaela Stock. Appointments can be made by calling +43 699 19207778. The virtual exhibition is documented in the form of printed information brochures. At the same time, art lovers can purchase a limited signed art poster for € 20,-. SALON REAL / VIRTUAL new gallery concept: real vs virtual The focus is on the interlocking of the real and virtual worlds and their combination of acoustic, visual, haptic stimuli.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 1# Salon: Denise Schellmann | Zwischenräume

    11 Sep 2020 – 08 Oct 2020

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL 1# SALON: DENISE SCHELLMANN | ZWISCHENRÄUME / Spaces in-between 11.9. – 08.10.2020 Salon 1# presents the young Austrian artist and pharmacist Denise Schellmann. With her background in science, Denise Schellmann sees the human body in the form of many coloured cells and empty spaces in-between, which would otherwise only be visible with a microscope. Her working process unfolds in a space between art and science from which she constantly draws new impetus for her compositions. The emphasis is on the intuitive drawing process, which as such requires extensive knowledge of the matter, even to the level of unconscious, automated actions. Her pencil and coloured pencil drawings initially impress with their seemingly harmonious colour composition, but in search of organic abstraction, all contradictions and inconsistencies are synthesised into a colourfully balanced and melodious tune on the invisible and difficult-to-access interfaces. Striking polarisation is a recurring theme in her work. Things the artist has learned, seen and experienced intuitively become part of her drawing process, thus creating new possibilities of interpretation in the viewer's mind. Elementary human and existential questions are interwoven in the structure of the drawing. Similar to yin-yang, two diametrically opposed principles co-exist in her imagery, which relate to and complement each other in a certain way: matter and space, art and science, image and word or creativity and structuredness, to name but a few. In her manifesto "The Arscientic Andism", Schellmann calls these intermediate spaces "Andism". In her new artworks, butterfly-like forms stand for reflection on one's own life and personal growth in uncertain circumstances. Comparable to the metamorphosis of a butterfly and its transformation from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly, this process reflects characteristics such as fragility, strength and independence.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: 4# Mroneline | DNA of Architecture

    19 Jan 2021 – 10 Feb 2021

    9.01. – 10.02.2021 Opening: Tuesday, January 19, online only galerie michaela stock Works by the young Bosnian architect Dario Krljes can be seen for the first time in the fourth exhibition series of Salon Real/Virtual in Michaela Stock Gallery. "Mroneline" is, on the one hand, the name of the artistic figure that the architect has created as an alter ego and, on the other hand, it defines his artistic style. The artistic figure "Mroneline" is inspired by the famous line drawings of Pablo Picasso. Mroneline's simple minimalist black and white drawing style is not a new style. The simplicity of the one-line drawing unmistakably reflects the spirit of classical modernist architecture à la Mies van der Rohe »Less is more« as well as his longing for the simplicity of form and function. Responding to the gallery concept SALON REAL / VIRTUAL, the exhibition DNA of Architecture in Salon Real will showcase digitally created portrait drawings of famous architects in order to emphasize two often diametrically opposed positions real vs. virtual. Hand-made drawings of architectural buildings and design pieces by these architects are juxtaposed in the virtual gallery. Since the real gallery will be closed until February 7th, the digital portraits will also be presented in a second room of the virtual gallery. Mroneline's drawings in the current exhibition appear as an artistic response to social, political developments and changes, which in certain times are also reflected architecturally. Cityscapes are shaped by their unique buildings, architects and designers. They accompany architect Dario Krljes on his life's journey from his early childhood in former socialist Yugoslavia, through his school years in Spain, to his architectural studies in Vienna. Accordingly, in his graphic oeuvre one finds impressively gigantic and emotional monuments of the Yugoslavian architectural scene, which were forgotten after the disintegration of the federal state. For example, Bogdan Bogdanovic, a Serbian architect who lived in exile in Vienna since the 1990s, created the Dudik Memorial Park in Vukovar for the victims of fascism. Another example of the unique architectural style of socialist modernism in the former Yugoslavia is the National Library of Kosovo in Pristina, designed by Croatian architect Andrija Mutnjakovic. Mronline's drawings of the Fuente de la Salamandra and the chimneys of Casa Milá, which look like warriors, were inspired by the architect Antonio Gaudi. Namely, he was largely influenced by Gaudi's architecture while growing up in Barcelona. The Barcelona Pavilion is considered one of Mies van der Rohe's major works. George Kolbe's sculpture "Morgen" plays an important role as an integral part of the architecture but very little attention has been paid to it so far. That is why Kolber's sculpture is presented and not the pavilion itself. Mroneline uses various architectural motifs to tell his personal story at the intersection of architecture and design. One of the motifs is dedicated to female architects such as Eileen Gray, Zaha Hadid and Ray Eames. Special interest has been given to the Irish designer and architect Eileen Gray. The Villa E.1027 on the Coted'Azur is her most famous building that led to great controversy with Le Corbusier. E.1027 is the only project of classical modernism planned and built by a woman alone. Her monochrome carpet design St Tropez, with geometric design elements, will be shown in the exhibition as a tribute to the artist.

    SALON REAL / VIRTUAL: #2 Natalia Gurova | Triggered silhouettes

    08 Oct 2020 – 05 Nov 2020

    In the second exhibition in Salon Real / Virtual, works by the young artist and journalist Natalia Gurova are on display. Her artwork at the moment focuses on the objects and structures that trigger change in human behavior and oscillate between plane imagery and three-dimensionality. In Salon Real Natalia Gurova shows two wall sculptures that deal with the changeable surface aesthetics of the object, but at the same time both pieces with their feel sensitize a subjective perception. The show in Salon Virtual is titled Triggered silhouettes and includes sculptures and graphic works that navigate between artistic techniques, and sometimes even merge. Natalia Gurova tells us in her works very often personal stories and her gaze is not only turned inwards but also directed to what is easily overlooked to the unspectacular. The main preoccupation of Gurova's works is reconsideration of the complex relationship between the conscious and unconscious 'self', their dichotomy and interaction. Her pieces with text combinations revolve around the question on which principles the naming of objects happens, that emphasize infinite reflection between the world and us. Some questions the artist addresses are: What love darts fired by the Roman god Cupid and love darts of snails, or architectural columns and vertebral column, have in common. Due to our tendency to take things more individually than to think in bigger correlations, most of these references usually remain subconscious. Her ongoing participatory performance “Sweet archive” in the virtual and real exhibition space contributes to the overall poetic effect and indicates the intended line of thought. The visitor can participate in this performance in the real and virtual space and the focus is on the interlocking of the real and virtual world and their combination of visual and haptic stimuli. Curriculum Vitae Natalia Gurova is an artist, born in Belarus, raised in Russia and based in Vienna. She did a journalism degree in Moscow and received her MA in Journalism from Moscow State University (2009) and worked for several years as political journalist in Moscow for different media including newspapers, radio, online and TV.. Currently she lives and works in Vienna and studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Julian Göthe, 2018) and before she studied at the University of Applied Arts (Paul Petritsch / 2014 - 2018). Guided studio visits on request The real artworks can be viewed with Michaela Stock in the artists' studio. Appointments can be made by phone +43 699 19 20 77 78. The virtual exhibition is documented in the form of printed information brochures. At the same time, art lovers can purchase a limited signed art poster of each exhibition for € 20,-.
