Für die Ausstellung der amerikanischen Künstlerin Roni Horn
(*1955 in New York) wurden aus dem medial vielseitigen Oeuvre herausragende Werkgruppen und Serien der letzten 20 Jahre ausgewählt. Es sind
fotografische Installationen, Arbeiten auf Papier und Skulpturen aus
gegossenem Glas, die in den sechs Räumen der Ausstellung als eine
zusammenhängende Installation erlebbar werden. Die Ausstellung
„Roni Horn“ wurde in enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Künstlerin für die
Räume der Fondation Beyeler entwickelt. Mehrere neue Werke werden hier
erstmals gezeigt. Im Zentrum des Schaffens von Roni Horn steht die Idee der
Identität und Wandelbarkeit. Mit ihren Arbeiten gelingt es Horn, feste
Zuschreibungen subtil auszuloten und Veränderliches und Vielfältiges
hervorzuheben. Sie zeigen, dass das Wesen der Dinge von ihrer sichtbaren
Erscheinung verschieden sein kann. Es ist daher kein Zufall, dass Roni Horn
Materialien wie Glas verwendet oder Motive wie Wasser oder Wetter behandelt,
die vielschichtig und deren Gestalt und natürlicher Zustand veränderbar sind.
Ihre Werke lassen solche Überlegungen sinnlich erfahrbar werden.
Ein spielerischer Umgang mit Sprache und Literatur erweitert den
Bedeutungsrahmen der entstandenen Bilder zusätzlich.
Seit 1975 reist Roni Horn regelmässig nach Island. Die einzigartig schroffe
Landschaft, die ungemein wechselhaften Wetterverhältnisse und die
Abgeschiedenheit des Ortes sind ihr wesentliche Quellen der Inspiration:
„Gross genug, um sich darin zu verlieren.
Klein genug, um sich selbst zu finden.“
Kuratorin der Ausstellung ist Theodora Vischer,
Senior Curator an der Fondation Beyeler.
Roni Horn wurde 1955 in New York geboren und wuchs in Rockland County
im Bundesstaat New York auf. Ihr Kunststudium absolvierte sie an der
Rhode Island School of Design und an der Yale University. Seit vielen Jahren
wird Horns Werk in Einzelausstellungen in wichtigen Museen moderner und zeitgenössischer Kunst in den USA und in Europa gezeigt.
Die Ausstellung „Roni Horn“ wurde ermöglicht durch die Unterstützung

EXHIBITION CONCEPT

The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to explore the relationship between language used to describe the psychotic state and mystical experience, exploring the spirituality of mental illness through an immersion in sacred space. Otto Wagner’s Jugendstil Church is one of very few sacred spaces built exclusively for the mentally ill, providing a sanctuary for the patients of the Steinhof Psychiatric Hospital. The exhibition will follow KUNSTGLAUBE’s tradition of offering a pilgrimage through the Church, beginning with an invitation to contemplate both historical and contemporary understandings of madness. Each of the works will be positioned throughout the liturgical space in order to enter into a meaningful dialogue with both theology and liturgy. The journey from crypt to the church will guide the visitor through a series of video installations in the dark and damp to emerge into a light filled church completely transformed by an immersive installation.

There have only been a small number of artworks and buildings created for the specific purpose of consoling the disturbed. The Isenheim altarpiece in Colmar, France was painted specifically for patients suffering from “Saint Anthony’s fire,” a condition known as ergotoxicosis. In the paintings, Matthias Grunewald included figures affected by the same symptoms of the disease as those who prayed before it. The bloated stomachs, gangrene limbs and bodies contorted in pain appear around the crucified body of Christ who seems to bear the same wounds as those afflicted. There is evidence in the design of the Kirche am Steinhof, that Otto Wagner also endeavored to provide a space that accounted for the specific condition in which the majority of patients found themselves. At the time of the Church’s construction, over ninety percent of patients intended for internment suffered from various strains of syphilis. Aware of the highly contagious nature of the disease, holy water was distributed by tap rather than from a bowl into which many contaminated hands would have otherwise deposited and further spread the virus. The easily washable tiles on the walls and floor, emergency exits on both sides of the church, wide aisles, narrow pews and the inaccessible sanctuary are all features that have accounted for the patients. The inclusion of a depiction of Saint Dymphna, the patron saint of the mentally ill in the apse and the absence of a prominent crucifix have also sought to console the patients.

Despite having different focus areas in their respective works on mysticism, roughly six characteristics of the mystical experience can be derived from Mircea Eliade, Rudolf Otto, William James, Walter Stace and D.T. Suzuki. These characteristics include:
1) a sense of being connected/united with a supreme/transcendental other
2) a sense of being connected/united with other people/nature
3) a loss of sense of time
4) a loss of sense of space
5) an inability to articulate the experience
6) a lasting sense of peace

Attempts at categorising the mystical experience have often adopted similar language and processes to those found in the field of psychiatry. In 2006, a committee formed by prominent clinicians and researchers of the American Psychiatric Association presented an analysis of the implications of religion and spirituality for the diagnosis, course, and outcomes of psychiatric treatment. Their Research Agenda for the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) addressed the spiritual and philosophical issues involved in distinguishing a psychiatric disorder from a spiritual condition. Even after considerable changes to both the DSM-V and the 10th edition of the Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders (ICD-10), it surely remains challenging for the clinician to distinguish between religious delusions as a potential expression of a psychiatric disorder, mystical experience, and positive religious coping strategies. Disturbances that have a religious dimension should not by default be viewed as pathological. When an individual is however unable to find an acceptable explanation or social comparison for their arousal or disturbance, their inability to deal with it could eventually lead to symptoms of psychopathology.

LIVES AND WORKS IN THIS HOUSE
The project aims to explore the intersections of native residents and artists
living in the same district in Moscow. The geographic database in the form
of an interactive map shows a number of pinned places where artists live and/or work found by the group of volunteers. Several attached videos document the process
based on walking tours with studio visits. The important part of the project is
the potentiality of the permanent update of the map placed for an open access
and the further development of this initiative in other parts of Moscow.
Participants: All found artists on the map

Contemporary Art is a microparticle, which no one can find,

but every sundry can predict:
I woke up, brewed coffee; poured bamboo named Kotja and turned on the computer.
And I realised, or to say better felt, “Line”, “Color” and “light.”
Now I am in this line (A), the colour (R), illuminated by this Light (T).
And all this were Other.
Yesterday, at the same astronomical time, I did the same thing, but
A, R and T were different.
I do not know what will happen tomorrow, but it was the same day before yesterday.
It is unlikely that I will be able to explain what happened. But I can paint it

down on paper, canvas or cardboard:
And this line A, this colour R, illuminated this light, T.
This feeling I have called the “NowI”.

About 1st WASB
Application Team Though there are more than 150 art biennials in the world
we need another one. Currently, an increasing number of art professionals
are looking beyond the frameworks of classical institutional approach.
Worldwide Apartment and Studio Biennale is a new formation, whose mission is
to create an opportunity of innovative union and mobilise self-organizing in the
arts on a global scale. Artist’s studios and apartment galleries as alternative exhibition spaces have rarely been included in popular art history. It is time to change it.
If you want to be a part of this global collaboration, join us!
During the 1st WASBiennale, a number of exhibitions and various art events
will take place in artist studios, apartment galleries and even private spaces
all over the world over the world at the same time.
 
 
1st WASBiennale takes place in October – November 2016.
Exhibitions and other art events with the topic
“BE MY GUEST” happen in more than 30 locations
all over the world.

The Worldwide Apartment and Studio Biennale, rather a new approach
for alternative exhibitions and independent initiatives. In Autumn 2016 the
first edition of WASBiennale will include more than 50 contemporary art
projects in more than 30 locations around the globe including most European
countries, Russia, South Korea and the USA.
Currently, an increasing number of art professionals are looking beyond the
frameworks of classical institutional frameworks. Worldwide Apartment and
Studio Biennale is a new formation, whose mission is to create an opportunity of innovative union and mobilise self- organizing in the arts on a global scale.
During the 1st WASBiennale in autumn 2016, a number of exhibitions and
various art events will take place in artist studios, apartment galleries and even
private spaces all over the world at the same time. The programme is showing
artistic and curatorial practice with different backgrounds, but what unites
all those projects is the search for distinct forms of representation.
1st WASBiennale will not just disclose undercurrents of contemporary art
history to a general public, but foremost to create an opportunity to build
parallels with the most recent developments in contemporary art, where again
artists and curators are compelled to find alternative ways. And it’s probably the
time to build up next level: a critique of an institutional critique. It doesn’t mean
we operate against institutions, but rather intend to establish a multilayered
experience in art practice.
The headline of the 1st WASBiennale: BE MY GUEST is bringing the idea
of transforming boundaries, showing a decreasing approach of white-cube-based
art space and inviting viewers to take a step into the intimate artist’s zone.
Letting anyone in the artist’s studio, as well as inviting someone in your private
space is a gesture of high confidence. Showing art in such format, involving the
audience in direct dialogue, helping to reduce a gap and provide a new scale
of artist / viewer communication.
The overall Biennale topic BE MY GUEST is beyond artistic representation,
based on the current socio-political situation in Europe and World. Regardless
individual artist statements, this issue are affecting almost everybody, by
being part of a global information field.
Worldwide Apartment and Studio Biennale is founded and developed
by: Anna Buyvid Independent curator and art critic.
born in USSR / Ukraine,
lived and worked in Moscow and St. Petersburg,
now based in Amsterdam, working on her PhD.
Anna graduated from the St. Petersburg Academy of fine Arts and holds a
degree in history and theory of fine arts. In 2014 Anna has participated in the
Gallerist Programme of the de Appel Arts centre (Amsterdam). She is active as a researcher in the field of art history of the twentieth century and contemporary art.
Since 2012 Anna curates the alternative exhibition project — “Monthly Payment”.
This project started as exhibitions in artist’s studios; and also has participated in a
number of international art fairs (Artmoscow’13, ArtVilnius’14) and appeared as
a guest project on the 55th Venice Biennale.
Anna Khodorkovskaya
Artist, works with painting, graphics, performance as well as rethinking
the mediums and looking for new forms. Interdisciplinary and collaborations
also play an important role in many of her works. Anna organised, curated
and was involved in numerous self-organized art initiatives in different cities
and online. Some of these projects explore the aspect of alternative spaces, systems, communication in the art world, e.g.: ArtStreamShop – travelling art-selling
performance, Reality Raum Residenz – a reality show in a privately rented
room, cheese Art Award – alternative art award in Russia, and others.
Born in Moscow,
Anna graduated from the Moscow State university of Printing Arts.
Moved to Austria to study painting at the Academy of fine Arts in Vienna,
where she lives and works now.
In 2014 Anna received the STRABAG Artaward International.

There isn’t any single reality, nor a unique way of looking at things. Seeing things from different angles is a very fruitful way to come to terms with the world, with our living in this world. The youngsters from Atelier dell’Errore, a laboratory of visual arts created 14 years ago as a complementary service to the Child Neuropsychiatric clinics of Reggio Emilia and Bergamo, know this very well. Their creative imagination is focused on the representation of animals depicted as ancestral figures, living organisms foreign to any traditional order of scientific classification. The Atelier animals certainly embody the fears and defeats of those drawing them, but more so their need for protection and their powerful drive towards self-assertion. Alive with a visionary energy, the Atelier works spring out of the youngsters’ need for assurance and support toward their achieving self-esteem and self-confidence and the development of a fruitful relational system with other people. For the exhibition The Guardian Animals + other invisible beings, made in cooperation with Collezione Maramotti and Max Mara, Atelier dell’Errore has found a suitable interlocutor in Moretti Fine Art, the gallery specialised in important Italian masters, which thanks to its constant research, is an important point of reference for collectors of ancient art. In this new project the Atelier drawings were able to strike a peculiar dialogue with classical works, showing that some themes and archetypes move across art history without any time-based and geographical constraints. The Fairy Queen, the video installation displayed in the window, beckons visitors to start an emotional and imaginific journey. The exhibition follows two different and complementary strands of work in the gallery. In the first one, striking a dialogue with the 14th-century painting on gold ground L’Arcangelo Michele by Andrea de Bartoli, for the first time the Atelier experimented with drawing on a “black ground” in which the works present an entomological interpretation of the classic iconographic tradition around the seven capital sins. The dualism, not only formal, between the gold ground in Andrea de Bartoli’s painting –hinting at an absolute light – and the black of the Atelier drawings – meant as the absence of light and absolute depth – is the leitmotif of the works. The second group of works comprise ten large drawings on a white background, mostly with irregular shapes, housed in wood cases, which are brought together with the 17th-century tondo L’Angelo Custode by Carlo Dolci. Inspiration, direction and care emerge from the depiction of Dolci’s painting becoming the paradigm of the Atelier’s social and expressive approach meant as “relational art work”: the youngsters’ ability to trust, and taking care of others, by presenting themselves as guides and points of reference for the frailest among them.

The exhibition also includes the book
Atlante di zoologia profetica / Prophetic zoological Atlas
(edited by Marco Belpoliti, Corraini Edizioni publisher).
The book, conceived after the exhibition Uomini come cibo
(Milan, June – September 2015), is a sort of atlas with many plates of the Atelier works and a series of multidisciplinary contributions on art and the specificity and exceptionality
of the works made by the Atelier youngsters.

Kalvarienberg, Schönberg am Kamp
Geht man aufmerksam durch Weingärten, findet man da und dort Setzlinge, geschützt durch Hüllen, damit sie nicht hungrigen Nagern ausgesetzt sind. Am Rand des Weingartens liegen ausgediente Weinstöcke zu makabren Knochenbergen aufgetürmt. Daneben verrotten jene Kletterhilfen, die viele Jahre lang den Trieben und Trauben Halt geboten haben. Ähnlich einem fossilen Fund bettet Wolfsberger die Drahtringe in Beton, um die Fundstücke anschaulich zu machen und das Gefühl zu vermitteln, dass so mancher Ring im Inneren verborgen ist, konserviert für die Ewigkeit. Die amorphen Drahtringe samt den organischen Stoppelzieher-artigen Weintrieben erscheinen als archäologischer Fund.
 
Namensgebend für das Kunstobjekt „Drahtsicht“ ist seine Positionierung an einem Hang am Kalvarienberg, der eine wunderschöne Aussicht bis ins Voralpenland bietet. Mit Umsicht wurde der Quader auf ein naturgeschütztes Grundstück gesetzt.
