111113: Wienerroither & Kohlbacher: Judith Reigl bei Wienerroither & Kohlbacher

Wienerroither & Kohlbacher Judith Reigl bei Wienerroither & Kohlbacher 09.10.2013 – 16.11.2013 Chambres des Refusés By Daniela Gregori The process is known for manuscripts: the writing or paint was washed or scraped from the surface in order to reuse the valuable vellum. Naturally, not everything disappeared, whereby parts of the former layer were visible beneath the new information. This was known as palimpsest. Judith Reigl employs a similar procedure for her canvases in the series “Entrée – Sortie”. The surface of older paintings is mechanically removed, subsequently repainted monochrome, with only a black rectangle in the centre of the canvas marking a breakthrough in the coloured wall. The depiction of dark door openings are not uncommon in art history – from the antiquity to present day - and painting over little appreciated canvases has always been a common practice. Reigl’s series additionally holds the imaginary option of exceeding the threshold to the chamber of each of the rejected, abandoned underlying painting or to let it reappear. Judith Reigl describes the short pause in nether land between Hungary and Austria on her flight in 1950 as a euphoric key experience: “no passport, no visa, no luggage, no money, no identity, really free, my new life begins… vita nuova”. The artist, born in Hungary in 1923, did not stay in Austria – her goal was to reach Paris, where she was able to assert herself as one of the few women next to her male colleagues in exhibitions – her works were purchased by the most important international museums for contemporary art. In Austria, her former threshold to a new life, Wienerroither & Kohlbacher is now devoting an exhibition to the impressive artist.
