Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Micha Payer and Martin Gabriel - Eyes on my Ears on my Ears 10.09.10 - 07.10.10 Subtle Dada Pop Some of the cubes made of everyday trash, which are standing around in the room, remind of César’s Controlled Compressions; in this exhibition, they stand in contrast to the subtle and at the same time, trashy drawings on the walls. These works attract your attention above all because of their collage-like compositions and their decorative character. The material cubes appear to be lacking in any composition – like their models. The connecting link between these very rough-seeming objects and the subtle drawings on the wall is a sculpture made of plastic toys, which have been glued together. The exhibited works, harmonious and seemingly from one hand, reminds one strongly of the art of Neo-Dadaismus and the pop art of the 1960’s. Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Wesselman spring to mind during the viewing. Even though the precision of the works is clearly in opposition to the then attitude of Neo-Dada, parallels can be found in the colorings and even more in the motifs: cars, modern people, brand logos – things that, would not be found in a picture by Rauschenberg, but that convey a similar mood because they seem to generate something like an inventory of our present times. By contrast, the large format Lambda-print with the title “Genetics”, its clarity and distinctiveness reminding of the aesthetics of computer art that the duo Payer-Gabriel not only care about a certain form but about the best possible implementation of their ideas - even if these are not always as clear and unmistakable as in the case mentioned.
