110110: Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf: Fabian Fink – Yesterday’s Parties

Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf: Fabian Fink – Yesterday’s Parties The ground beneath one’s feet Fabian Fink, born 1979 in Salzburg, dared to undertake an exciting and courageous experiment: a huge installation, which is spread across the entire gallery floor. After one ventures to set foot on the installation, comprised of 304 convex-shaped plasterboards, the creation is highly impressive. An awkward feeling arises while walking around on the rather fragile and wavy surface. The ground beneath one’s feet begins to wobble letting associations such as “losing ground under one’s feet” or “entering shaky terrain” emerge. Conceptual art is presented and made tangible that is not dependent on intellectual and contextualizing comprehension The actual strength of this installation lies in the perception of an experience outside the realm of everyday life, as well as a modified awareness of one’s self and the world. Already the title of the exhibition, with its insinuation to Andy Warhol’s favourite song “All Tomorrow’s Parties” sung by The Velvet Underground and Nico, reveals in which tradition this art can be classified. Happenings as well as concept art, which mark the 1960’s and 1970’s in the USA, form the background for this courageous and noteworthy work. Fink’s approach reminds of Allan Kaprow’s installation “Yard” (1961), in which hundreds of used car tyres were piled in the narrow garden behind the Martha Jackson Gallery in New York, thereby creating one of his extraordinary Environments.
