My personal Art Consultancy Selection is narrowed down to three main galleries which are definitely worth to be visited in person if you get the chance to go to Vienna in the next few days until Sunday. The first or rather last gallery before the exit presents an installation by two Austrian artists
Michael Kienzer and Franz Riedl, whereby the works of the latter immediately reminded me of my first viewing of Lucio Fontana’s work in New York when I first discovered the international art scene at the age of 17. In a conversation at the art space Art & Function by Sabine Kienzer, I spotted the next generation artists of today and tomorrow, my favorite works were located there respectively in the corner next to the stairs on the first of three levels, which also served as a perfect connection between the art of the Kienzer Family thereby connected from level 1 till -2.
Michael Kienzer later told me that he was awarded last year’s Art Award for the best installation by medium-aged artists as I told him my personal decision would award this year’s award in this category to him and Franz Riedl, as the award goes to the entire gallery installation respectively and both artists convinced me with their yet subtle but mesmerizing installation that gave both artists the space their work needed to be comprehended in full. To be viewed at Hummel Gallery, see details below.
