140610: Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Ekaterina Shapiro-Obermair – Salon Systématique

Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Ekaterina Shapiro-Obermair – Salon Systématique 21.05.10 – 17.06.10 Russian Avant-garde Amazing how the works by this young artist, born 1980, remind of the classic Avant-garde of the 1920’s and 30’s without appearing antiquated. Especially the collages strike one as originals of that time: they each show a small black-and-white photo reminding of Man Ray’s works, skilfully positioned on a white piece of paper. The eccentric but subtle choice of how the photos are positioned and their integration into the configured plane with the help of a single fine line lets the works resemble constructivist compositional studies, whose quality equals that of Rodchenko or Malevich. The freestanding assemblages are characterized by clear, reduced, geometrical forms. Some of th stair- and box-like sculptures made of painted plywood and fibreboards are placed on four upside down glasses, and appear as if floating, and some are positioned directly on the floor. The black-and-white works with their geometric patterns are especially striking. Their design is not only in line with early 20th century art but also with the 1960’s and 70’s Op Art. Their fractured image- and form language is bizarre, creating a distancing effect, which embeds Shapiro-Obermair’s works in today’s postmodernism. The artist's work focuses on Russian art and culture and the current presentation very often reminds of the Russian Avant-garde and its characteristic form language.
