270212: Startgalerie im MUSA Sarah Pichlkostner – Quite. Dissolving the unformed

Startgalerie im MUSA Sarah Pichlkostner – Quite. Dissolving the unformed 27.01.12 – 01.03.12 Dazzling grey By Wolfang Pichler Although she works with a very reduced and above all, chilly colourfulness, the 1988-born artist manages to create a very intensive atmosphere. An iron construction takes a prominent place in the room, which appears like a never-finished dressing room bench, albeit without hooks and places to sit. Next to this, a "blackboard" with a yellow "sponge" on the shelf beneath it. Her installations in grey and a very vapid-looking neon yellow, create a strange and fusty atmosphere reminiscent of a classroom and gymnasium changing room. But if one looks further in the exhibition, one is reminded of Richard Serra's "lead sculptures" with objects of transparent synthetic material and which appear to be stuck to the floors and walls in a separate area of the gallery. Likewise, one can hardly think about anyone other than Joseph Beuys when viewing the parts of some works created from grey felt paper. This postmodernism, and its conditions of continuous self-reflective features in Sarah Pichlkostner's work, find their climax in the ever-recurring small pictures on the walls that appear as cuttings from the shown environment. That the work shown here is about a great "whole" and not about single objects can be ascertained from the "List of Works" which, in this case includes a room plan with numbers. But this shows a section of the room and what is in it rather than objects distinctly separated and independent from one other. Incidentally, the above-mentioned pictures function wonderfully as individual artistic works.
