030510: MUSA – Museum auf Abruf Christoph Meier – The Painting Room

MUSA – Museum auf Abruf Christoph Meier – The Painting Room 09.04.10 – 12.05.10 Think-Art Christoph Meier’s exhibition “The Painting Room” presents art for artists, or even more so - for people who constantly and theoretically attempt to grapple with art’s contemporary developments. The exhibition doesn’t offer much more than a huge partition wall, covered with residues of art and other traces of art production; an object made of colour, tubes, which appear as if they were accidentally bespattered and a heap of luminescent yellow text folders. The latter being the most essential part of the entire show, because the actual art, or that what this exhibition centres on, is not visible, but only described in Christoph Meier’s text. Thus, the procedural, the action, and foremost the object’s story of bearing witness to this action, is Meier’s actual art. And the heap of flyers, which is constantly dwindling and is thereby subject to continuous change, coherently matches the concept of performative art, which does not present the onlooker with a finalized object, but lets him/her be part of the artwork. It only seems logical that Richard Serra or Robert Morris are quoted in the text and thereby position Meier’s oeuvre in context with these essential representatives of Minimalism or, even more importantly, of Post-minimalism. Truly beautiful elements, which at times remind of Antoni Tàpies works, can be found on the partition wall, even if this was most probably not intended. The objects presented at this exhibition raise intriguing as well as significant theoretical questions. However, the works of the artist, born 1980, will remain incomprehensible to a larger public.
