061210: Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Timotheus Tomicek, Ulrich Eigner – It’s there

Startgalerie im Museum auf Abruf Timotheus Tomicek, Ulrich Eigner – It’s there 17.11.2010 – until 11.12.2010 Observe - and play Within the framework of the European Month of Photography at the Startgalerie in the MUSA, two young photographers offer insight into their work: Ulrich Eigner works in the classic field and follows the long tradition of documentary photographers. He displays a series of works depicting the seeming idyll in the Austrian Alps - with no comment and a slightly ironic bias: a barn and the shape of its pitched roof that is mirrored in the shape of the mountain range behind it, making it unclear what was man-made and what was nature. In his works, Eigner, born 1973, masterfully plays with shapes without letting his work appear artificial. The works by Timotheus Tomicek on the other hand are absolutely construed, and that’s exactly what makes them fascinating. He dominates the exhibition with his playful, almost baroque works as well as a small, unexpected installation. The MUSA-exhibition benefits from the fact that the works by the artists are spatially divided. Tomicek’s photographs stand out in the Rocaille-decorated gold frames in digital monitors. One of these pictures shows an extravagantly clad young woman kneeling in front of a small table and placing a domino on top of domino-tower. After a few seconds one is amazed to realize that the photo moves; it is a kind of “minimalistic animation”. The woman in the picture titled “one more” undertakes a minimal movement showing that she doesn’t actually place the last domino onto the pile. This surprise effect is a Leitmotiv for the pieces displayed at the exhibition – such as a miniature dragon - at first only recognizable by its shadow - flies around the gallery room, incessantly following its own tracks.
