ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Miriam Hamann lives and works in Vienna and Berlin. Focusing on installations which deal with space, her work is the result of an investigation into the sculptural presence of everyday objects. In addition to the decontextualization and recontextualization of everyday objects the immaterial plays an important role as well. She uses sound and light as an immaterial “fabric” that is uncoupled from its environment and original function to become a building block for the creation of new architectures and spatial perceptions. www.miriamhamann.com
Having worked in the field of photography and installation art Sieglind Gabriel has recently returned to her roots – printmaking and drawing. Gabriel develops her image library from a continuous interplay of searching, finding, losing and retrieving. Fragmented visual memories are pieced together and follow the logic of associations spinning a web of little stories whose narrative structures are torn apart and ultimately put together by the viewer. This focus on a cross-over and disintegration of fiction and reality reveals a humorous undertone as well as a poetic tinge of the banal and the ordinary. Her recent series of screen prints „Regen wäscht“ dissects a poem written by the artist and discloses a visual rhythm of dots and lines where the boundaries between the abstract and the concrete are blurred.
Nanna Prieler is a female illustrator working from a studio in Vienna, Austria. Allowing herself to focus on beauty and esthetics she is processing contemporary topics or trends and translates them into her own visual language. Thereby her work focuses closely on representation of ethnicity and sexuality with integrity, following her own authentic perspective as a woman artist. By using an analog printing technique her artworks gain a deeper emotional quality and nostalgia that contrasts the eye-catching boldness of their happy color and accentuates their flat character. www.nannaprieler.com
Thomas Rhube: Seeking pictures that stay - whether strong or not. The artistic practice reaches from painting to silkscreen. Always in mind what has been and what has to come. Sometimes induced by a song sometimes by silence. Do what you can. www.thomasrhube.com
Golif lives and works in Vienna, he early began gaining numerous experience in several professions. His long-standing occupation in both domestical and cross-border as gilder, sign-painter, illusionist artist and painter, definitely shine through his creative works. Crucial elements of Golif´s rich in contrast pieces are dynamic brushstrokes and vivid pace which are for the most part painted with ink on various substrate. 2016 he finished university of applied arts in Vienna (Prof. Jan Svenungsson). www.golif.net
