180509: Galerien Schleifmühlgasse: curated by_Gianni Jetzer. Beginnings, Middles, and Ends

Galerien Schleifmühlgasse: curated by_Gianni Jetzer. Beginnings, Middles, and Ends Arbitrary fragments The written picture placed at the beginning of the exhibition “Beginnings, Middles, and Ends”, curated by Gianni Jetzer (director of the Swiss Institute in New York) is no coincidence, – especially if one starts the group show of the four galleries in Vienna’s Schleifmühlgasse with the Galerie Georg Kargl. “Once there was a little boy / And everything turned out alright. THE END” Louis Lawler writes. The exhibit assumes that artists employ “narrative structures” without “narrating entire stories”. Thereby the curator – according to the press release - presents works, which “although they are only insinuations they are able to point to a non-existent entity”. It therefore seems natural to begin this endeavour with something in writing. But there are also other “Ends” – for example on Luke Butler’s post cards (Georg Kargl Fine Arts) or in E.A. Poe’s various texts, extracted from books and glued onto white paper by Kris Martin (Engholm Engelhorn Galerie). More often the “Middles” appear on the scene – obviously, because it is much easier to find something in the category ‘simple and moving’– either in Guido Van der Werve’s remarkable film, in which an artist is chased by an icebreaker, or in the, by the way really dull, text fragments by Gedi Sibony (Gabriele Senn Galerie) or in Ján Mancuska’s beautiful installation, in which he wrote a short story on tableware (Engholm Engelhorn). The bracket, which Gianni Jetzer spans around his selection, seems to be too large to offer meaningful cognitions: ever since the historic avant-garde, the method of fragmentation is far too widespread. It would have been more exciting to concentrate on the “Beginnings” and “Ends”. Now the outcome is only an arbitrary choice of art, divided up among the four galleries.
