091213: Galerie nächst St. Stephan: Michael Budny – Ashamed and Shameless

Galerie nächst St. Stephan Michael Budny – Ashamed and Shameless 20.11.2013 – 18.01.2014 Performance in white By Susanne Rohringer Micha? Budny, who works with materials such as blankets, slightly yellowed curtains, paints and transparent paper has brought a copious wooden podium into the first room of the gallery which shrouds the original gallery floor, thereby letting it be forgotten. The artist only decided on site which objects he wanted to show. At first sight, it's not so easy to understand that the work it's not about pictures. Admittedly, at a fleeting first glance, the aspect of a picturesque work appears present, but it's definitely not painting. Budny is a sculptor and his objects should be understood as such. Budny's works concern objects, which mostly have a frame. The representations emerge from these in layers of transparent paper, lacquer or plastic foil. These works often consist of a core, which opens like a slit, revealing hidden treasure and, at the same time, an interior view. Sometimes the "paintings" are also reflected on their own axis. In these works of mixed materials, Budny grapples very firmly with the different colour effects of white. Some works, which already tend towards being yellow, are composed only of transparent paper on wooden frames and are painted. Some of these are produced in series and thereby cite the art history: from suprematism to minimal art. Nevertheless, Budny focuses mainly on other accents. A type of podium with "half a box" stands in the second room, which is actually a passageway. It is decorated with red and black panels. The object is reminiscent of a narrow stage of a children's puppet theatre. How much the play and the theatre influence Budny's works can also be seen in his adaptation of the local objects. In the room with the alleged puppet stage, there's an indentation in the gallery wall. It is kept in white wall paint, is visible in the form of a triangle and appears as an artistic object. Budny reacts to his surroundings and shapes them. There emerges a plethora of strategies whose microcosms can be called art.
