250208: Krinzinger Projekte: Suite Francaise

Krinzinger Projekte: Suite Francaise Minimally female The press release sent out regarding the exhibit “Suite Françoise” clearly shows that the curators Corentin Hamel and Steven Guermeur were in doubt if it really made sense to exclusively exhibit young French artists. But if one omits these concerns - such as nationalism, academism, or banality – the visitor will experience an effervescent show, which, however, definitely does not include enough female artists. It is hardly plausible that France only has two exciting young female artists to offer. Mathieu Mercier, born 1970, has asked the gallery workmen to drive coloured dowels into the wall and create a likable mural – similar to Minimal Art representative Sol LeWitt and his “Wall Drawings”. Bruno Peinado dented three shiny lacquered Donald Judd-like cubes – destroying their magnificent perfection. And Guillaume Lebon’s monochrome papers hanging on a clothesline also remind somewhat of Minimal Art. On the other hand, street culture also comes into play – in Morgane Tschiember’s fantastic star or in Fabien Verschaere’s comic-like illustrations. Kader Attia’s impressively irritating installation has little in common with the majority of the works shown: figures made of tin foil are lined up next to one another and seem immersed in prayers. A frontal view of the group reveals black holes instead of faces. The displayed pieces of art partially develop a kind of coherence, however, one that is mostly rather detached. And maybe next time the percentage of female artists won’t be so minimal. Krinzinger Projekte 1070 Wien, Schottenfeldgasse 45, until 29.02.08
