43rd exhibition in St Pölten with works from Aldo Giannotti and Borjana Ventzislavova
Parallel to the exhibition, six installations by Borjana Ventzislavova and Aldo Giannotti can also be seen in public spaces in St Pölten.
Aldo Giannotti (born in Genoa; lives and works in Vienna) is a draughtsman. In his minimalist depictions he refers to (cultural-)political, social and societal circumstances and conditions. Giannotti’s medium, the line, has also been increasingly striving towards the physical space, especially in recent years, seeking points of overlap and connection with architecture, installation and performance and actively involving his audience, by issuing playful instructions for action via his drawings, for example.
Borjana Ventzislavova (born in Sofia; lives and works in Vienna) works primarily with the media of photography, video and installation. Her artistic work revolves around themes such as migration, envisioning the future and utopia, generational change and the alienation of humans from nature. In a mysterious, intensely colourful – but also dark – visual language, the aesthetics and pop culture of the 1980s are constant points of reference for Borjana Ventzislavova.
Parallel to the exhibition, six installations by Borjana Ventzislavova and Aldo Giannotti can also be seen in public spaces in St Pölten (at the railway station, Cinema Paradiso, Klangturm, Festspielhaus and Landtagsschiff). The project was organised by art hoc projects and generously supported by foryouandyourcustomers.
