220914 : Startgalerie im MUSA Öllinger/Rainer – Lots of Success

Startgalerie im MUSA Öllinger/Rainer – Lots of Success 05.09.2014 – 02.10. 2014 Self-confidence By Wolfgang Pichler The mantra of our time is “to be successful” and nothing less is important in art. On the contrary, competition in the area of “high art” is even harder and more merciless than in other areas, because the sole purpose of ones own actions depends on how its received by others. Beyond this awareness and approval by the audience there is no recognition, of any nature. In Rainer/Oellingers case this happens in the form of a parcour of themes that leads the viewers along the different stages of the path to success. This does not happen without ironic negations and self-doubts that show up as corrugated cardboard signs on the left and right of the defined path. The path itself is also made of cardboard and was elegantly and skilfully integrated into the rooms of the Startgalerie. The term “trash culture” takes on a completely new meaning. Rarely had anyone used brown packaging board so precisely and with such love of detail. Here one does not intend to show-off, but to doubt and hesitate. But this does mean that the two artists don’t want to have anything to do with all the “career nonsense”. Rainer/Oellinger rather openly and honestly discuss the feeling of despair about ones own lack of success and transforms it into something productive. The young artist duo Rainer/Oellinger skilfully connects to the well known experiences of self-expression, self-assertion and conquering ones place in society, and lead us through a roller-coaster of emotions. However, only those who have already experienced recognition through society and are in a more or less secure financial position will enjoy this parcour on success.
