Caroline Achaintre, Dauerwelle, Belvedere 21, Vienne, May 17 – Sept 15, 2019
Caroline Achaintre is presenting new work in a site-specific exhibition at the Belvedere 21. At the intersection of abstraction and objectivity, Achaintre works with materials like wool, ceramic and watercolour that enable a spontaneous, intuitive approach. Constants in her seemingly animate oeuvre are the masquerade, the dark, mysterious and uncanny. Both thematically and formally, the artist explores Central European carnival and Mardi Gras customs. Influences from horror and science fiction find their way into her creative work as does her examination of how ethnological collections are presented in museums.
Opening Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 7pm
