150310: CX Huth – Pop Goes my World

zs art KunstRaum CX Huth – Pop Goes my World 23.01.10 – 27.03.10 Popular pre-organisation Beethoven is one of the few Germans who not only contributed to Vienna’s fame, but also died in the Austrian capital. He consciously followed an artist’s tragic fate, who, lonely and deaf and lacking all love and caring, was consoled by the thought of following in Mozart’s and Bach’s footsteps. This exaltedness to flaunt with the congeniality of others can also be attributed to CX Huth in his exhibition “Pop goes my world”. Even without having read the press release, Dubuffet (drawings), Basquiat (style), and Jawlensky (icon), and possibly even Warhol (strategy) come to ones’ mind. Similar to the Albertina, valuable pedagogic information on the wall informs the visitor that he/she is faced with an internationally renowned artist from Berlin’s district of the Prenzlauer Berg. Beneath his works, the artist added many of the titles in handwriting, together with the year the painting was made, the size, and the price. The slogan on the wall states that there is no question regarding what may not be asked, but every answer could be appreciated as an answer. Or how else should one imagine seeing “a symbolic pop-art-value-world”, which the wall text promises that one sees. Paintings that could decorate any wall in any building – the sauna just as well as the library, the dining room or the living room? These are characteristics attributed to CX Huth’s works and they are underlined by his direct working method, usually combined with primary colours, and show colourfulness spontaneously correlates with figurative illustrations that do not have a deep background. In the gallery room there are pedestals on which black-and-white illustrations attempt to transpose the motives into the room – something that is particularly successful on the landing leading towards the upper room, showing a heart-shaped face on a girl’s body and an astonished egg floating above her. One could easily imagine using the artist’s design on wrapping paper, hand towels, tableware and furnishing fabrics – as it is one of the fine characteristics of pop culture that it fits everywhere; without flustering or worrying that a painting might sweat to much if it is placed near the sauna. Pop doesn’t sweat; it’s in a good mood and doesn’t impose anything onto anyone that was not desired in the first place. Seen this way, pop is the transferral of inspirational marketing strategies into art, and only those who wants art to take place outside of the market, in a seemingly religious immaculate way, could complain. Beethoven’s “For Elise” is a ring tone for cell phones as well as a melody for numerous hurdy-gurdy organs, but not musical washroom accompaniment at the Albertina; that was taken over by Mozart. Never before has anyone written about those, who cannot be planted into pop culture - thereby one can attest CX Huth that he is forward-looking.
