040612: Startgalerie im MUSA - Corina Vetsch

Startgalerie im MUSA 25.05.2012 – 21.06.2012 Time in a picture By Wolfang Pichler Immediately upon entering the room dominated by large-format paintings, a simple but all the more effective video catches the onlooker’s attention. In the video, the artist Corina Vetsch describes how her cat died eating part of a canvas that was specifically prepared for this exhibition. This adds a very personal touch to the pastel-coloured paintings, which mainly focus on the so-called crisis. What is the significance of personal suffering in relation to the “big picture”? And it is this video that sticks in one’s memory. The wonderfully composed pictures are painted on canvas but hung without a wooden frame - thereby reinforcing the impression of openness and flexibility. Citations from newspapers and other media, sometimes pasted in classic collage style, or painted with elaborate inscriptions, constitute the basis of thoroughly political works – which come across as unusually bright and optimistic. They constitute more of a humorous compilation of the situation than an angry accusation and show how absurd most political disputes are. This absurdity becomes especially clear in the work “We are the people”. The first words of the US constitution “We, the people” are transformed into “We are the people” by simply adding “are”. A citation from the constitution thereby becomes an accusation…. The works are all very harmonious, even decorative, and the contrast strengthens the effect of their controversial content.
