090315: Galerie Nächst St. Stephan - Christoph Weber

Galerie Nächst St. Stephan Christoph Weber 29.01.2015 – 14.03.2015 Mass and Material by Susanne Rohringer In its current exhibition, the Galerie nächst St. Stephan is showing the most recent works of the Viennese artist, Christoph Weber, born 1974. In the first room of the gallery, a five-part sculptural work in concrete leans against one wall. The cuboids are set up in a line and buckle over one after the other. The last cuboid looks as if it had already been poured between the wall and the parquet flooring. Looking at this first example, one can already begin to question the production method and the artist's intention. Weber completes the plastics in certain forms and, shortly before they have hardened, he sets them in different positions. Mass and material are thereby altered. Thus, Weber steps in where altering the absolutely unmalleable – namely concrete – is still possible. Precisely in this first work in the Galerie nächst St. Stephan which – like all further works – also carries the ironic title "not yet titled", the collapsing of the cuboids appears to progress like a law in the series. Consequently, the time factor plays a certain role in this artistic object. Weber also plays with the observer's expectations, the latter reckoning that this sculpture will "collapse", which, however, never happens. The concrete is firmly constructed. However, it gives the impression of the greatest fragility.
