270409: Galerie mezzanin: Alexander Wolff

Galerie mezzanin: Alexander Wolff Exhibition for those passionately interested in themselves – cause & effect Every week Alexander Wolff varies the way his works are hanged at the Galerie Mezzanin. His witty concept encourages the audience to revisit his exhibition, possibly even several times and it allows the onlooker to discover how his/her own perception of the artwork reacts to the relocation. The title “Exhibition for those passionately interested in themselves” can be interpreted as a poetic subtext for this concept. Based on the concept of Minimal Art, the artist draws on industrialized formats or incorporates the on-site situation into the formal process. The gallery’s doors and windows are blended into his compositions, whereby the play with light and shadow develops to a consistent motif for the white, gray and black nuances of his works. By changing the position of his paintings, Wolff creates aesthetically paradox circumstances: they contrast with the background and produce provocative and fascinating effects. In comparison to finalized art products, Wolff extends the scope by fading the visual information either in or out. In his series “Non Commodities” (2009) the textile works function as a frameless - through their Velcro fasteners - counterpart to the so-called “shaped-canvas”. This allows them to easily be combined in an altered way, whereby transformation processes take place in the works themselves. This permits a continuously new formal aesthetic trace.
