The exhibition YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & Counterparts worldwide – Going London 2021 showcases Austrian art in counterposition with selected international artists in London in June 2021 in our Baker Street office.

Elisabeth Pfniss, an Austrian painter from the region Styrian, is most prominent for her use of special Japanese paper, that she reworks and in the process creates a three-dimensional fiche, slightly translucent when leaned against the window upon the sunlight falling in. The artist is in the early stages of her career which she started after a career as a doctor and in her work the meticulous process of development of her work, the patience of a surgeon, applying layers and layers of paint to the paper ordered mainly from Japan directly and in the case of the displayed work Woman in Rosé, 2020 creates these unique works, consisting of six parts, numbered and signed. Elisabeth Pfniss was chosen, when I discovered her last year and being part of an exhibition at the Bell Tower Graz, curated by myself after being familiar with her work for several years. The figurative language in her early work has become more and more abstract in her recent works and are influenced by her medical career.

Woman in Rosé, 2020 has been chosen as a title in conversation with the artist, upon a studio visit in Graz, Austria and the particular aspect is that the figurines depicted are headless. The head seems cut off, only the neck remaining, stretching out of the depicted body. Rose in colour in a very delicate shade, mainly associated with little blossoms on wild rose bushes, reminding of a secret garden not the cruel outcome of a beheaded figurine which makes us ponder about the deeper meaning of her work and clearly relates to taking apart the human body in medical training, when dissecting to study the anatomy of humans. Pointing out, that the head remains the most important part in humankind, making us who we are, not only shaping our personality but being centre of the functioning of our whole body, creating our identity. The lacking of such thereby questions our existence but could as well incur psychoanalysis, when confronted with new ways to adapt to life’s circumstances like in today’s times.

The science fiction novel O-Zone by American author Paul Theroux, written in 1987 describes a New York, that is sealed off from the rest of the world, where babies are brought up in retort and people have to pass gates in town only by using their personal fingerprint. In the 1980s still very futuristic, today part of our daily routine, even in using our phones with facial recognition or finger print access, securing and protecting our personal life. Like I said to my friend, working in a small café in Graz in Austria the other day, I would have never thought that one day I would need to provide a test result to sit down for cake and coffee, nowadays an integral part of our life to stay healthy. Futuristic sounding at first, but today’s reality around the world.

The counter-position with the internationally renowned American artist Dan Graham, selected for the exhibition with his limited edition work Sketch for Two Way Mirror/ Hedge Arabesque dating from 2013 created this sketch bearing in mind, a future sculptural outcome as a commission work and is signed with his name three times Dan Graham, with Dan Graham, signed Dan Graham, which led me to write about the ‘Me’ versus ‘Us’ in 2019, on the occasion of his exhibition Dan GrahamContemplation curated by myself in the AØH Art Consultancy Haberz.

In his performances Graham engages with the audience, the public is asked to define himself, he defines the audience. It’s a ’Me’ versus ’We’ resulting in creating a better understanding of Graham’s personality by himself, mirrored in the eyes of the audience.

His creation of this sketch, affirmed by signing it a third time. This process shows his presence as an artist as well as being by himself in his studio when creating the work as well as the master imprinting on the final drawing with his signature. On a conceptual level integrating us as spectators, a major part in Dan Graham’s artistic practice in his art performances. Dan Graham is represented by Lisson Gallery in London.

Die Ausstellung YACA (Young Austrian Contemporary Art) & Counterparts worldwide – Going London 2021 zeigt Österreichische Kunst in Gegenüberstellung mit ausgewählten internationalen Künstler_innen in London im Juni 2021 in unserem Büro in der Baker Street.

Die Steirische Malerin Elisabeth Pfniss, die am bekanntesten für ihre Nutzung von speziellem Japanischen Papier ist, das sie weiterbearbeitet und dreidimensionale Fiche kreiert, wie man im Französischen sagt, zu Deutsch kartenförmige Blätter, leicht durchscheinend wenn sie gegen das, Fenster, mit einfallendem Sonnenlicht, gelehnt sind. Die Künstlerin ist am Beginn ihrer künstlerischen Karriere, welche sie nach ihrem Beruf als Ärztin begonnen hat und in ihrer Arbeit wird die genaue Herangehensweise im Entstehungsprozess, mit Geduld einer Chirurgin, durch Schicht um Schicht von Farbe auf hauptsächlich direkt aus Japan bestelltem Papier aufgetragen und im Falle des gezeigten Werkes Frau in Rosé, 2020, kreiert sie Unikate, die aus sechs Teilen bestehen, nummeriert und signiert. Elisabeth Pfniss wurde ausgewählt, nachdem ich sie im letzten Jahr entdeckt habe, als Teilnehmerin einer von mir kuratierten Ausstellung im Grazer Glockenturm, nachdem ich mit ihrer Arbeit bereits einige Jahre vertraut war. Die figurative Formensprache in ihrem frühen Werk wurde immer abstrakter in ihren aktuelleren Arbeiten und sind von ihrer medizinischen Karriere beeinflusst.

Frau in Rosé, 2020 wurde m Gespräch mit der Künstlerin, bei einem Atelierbesuch, als Titel ausgewählt und ihr besonderer Aspekt sind die fehlenden Köpfe der abgebildeten Figuren. Der Kopf scheint abgeschnitten, nur der Hals verbleibend, hervor gestreckt aus dem abgebildeten Körper. Rosa in Farbe in einem sehr leichten Ton, hauptsächlich mit kleinen Knospen auf wilden Rosenbüschen assoziiert, an einen geheimen Garten erinnernd, nicht das grausame Resultat einer geköpften Figur, was uns über die tiefere Bedeutung ihrer Werke nachdenken lässt und klar auf das Auseinandernehmen des Körpers in der medizinischen Ausbildung Bezug nimmt, wenn ein Körper seziert wird, um die Anatomie der Menschen zu studieren. Hervorhebend, dass der Kopf der wichtigste Teil der Menschheit bleibt, uns zu dem macht, wer wir sind, nicht nur unsere Persönlichkeit formt, sondern das Zentrum der Funktionalität unseres gesamten Körpers ist, unsere Identität kreiert. Das Fehlen desselben stellt dabei unsere Existenz in Frage aber könnte ebenfalls Psychoanalyse implizieren, wenn wir mit neuen Wegen konfrontiert sind, uns an die Lebensumstände der heutigen Zeit anzupassen.

Der Science Fiction Roman O-Zone des Amerikanischen Autors Paul Theroux, verfasst im Jahr 1987, beschreibt ein New York, das vom Rest der Welt abgeschnitten ist, in dem Babies in der Retorte aufgezogen werden und Menschen Absperrungen in der Stadt passieren müssen, nur durch Nutzung ihres persönlichen Fingerabdruckes. In den 1980er Jahren noch futuristisch, heute Teil unserer täglichen Routine, beispielsweise in Nutzung unserer Telefone mit Gesichtserkennung oder Zugang mit Fingerabdruck, unser persönliches Leben sichernd. Wie ich zu einem Freund, der in einem kleinen Café in Graz arbeitet kürzlich gesagt habe, ich hätte nie gedacht, dass ich eines Tages einen Test benötigen würde um mich zu Kuchen und Kaffee hinzusetzen, heutzutage ein integraler Teil in unserem Leben um gesund zu bleiben. Zu Beginn futuristisch klingend, aber heutzutage Realität rund um die Welt.

Die Gegenüberstellung mit dem international anerkannten, Amerikanischen Künstler Dan Graham, für die Ausstellung ausgewählt mit seiner limitierten Edition Sketch for Two Way Mirror/ Hedge Arabesque, datierend aus dem Jahr 2013, kreierte diese Skizze mit dem Vorsatz einer zukünftig skulpturalen Umsetzung, als Auftragsarbeit und ist dreimal mit seinem Namen signiert, Dan Graham, mit Dan Graham, signiert Dan Graham, was mich 2019 dazu gebracht hat über das ‘Ich’ versus ‘Uns’ zu schreiben, anlässlich seiner Ausstellung Dan GrahamContemplation, von mir für die AØH Art Consultancy Haberz kuratiert.

In seinen Performances interagiert Graham mit dem Publikum, die Zuschauer sind aufgefordert ihn zu definieren. Es ist ein ‘Ich’ versus ‘Wir’, resultierend in einem besseren Verständnis Graham’s Persönlichkeit durch ihn selbst, gespiegelt in den Augen der Zuschauer.

Seine Kreation dieser Skizze, zugestimmt, indem er sie ein drittes Mal signiert. Der Prozess zeigt seine Präsenz als Künstler, zugleich das Alleinsein in seinem Atelier, als er das Werk geschaffen hat, sowie die Prägung der finalen Zeichnung durch den Meister, mit seiner Unterschrift. Auf konzeptueller Ebene, uns als Beobachter_innen integrierend, ein wesentlicher Teil in Dan Graham’s künstlerischer Herangehensweise in seiner Performance Kunst. Dan Graham ist von der Lisson Gallery in London repräsentiert.

Die Arbeiten der Österreichischen Künstler Rene Berghold, Max Kulich und Walter Köstenbauer sowie der Deutschen Malerin Kathrin Weber und dem Italienischen Künstler Tonino Gottarelli in Kollaboration mit der Fondazione Tonino Gottarelli von Imola, Italien vervollständigt die kuratorische Auswahl der Ausstellung, geplant für Juni 2021 in unserem Büro in London, einhergehend mit den aktuellen Gesundheits- und Sicherheitsbestimmungen der Britischen Regierung nur auf Anfrage geöffnet.

Exhibition Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt until 31st of October 2020

Dear friends of the AØH Art Consultancy Haberz,

We are happy to inform you, that the exhibition Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt will be travelling to London in November and Rotterdam to Victory Art in December 2020.

A great opportunity for us to inaugurate our new office and company AØH Art Consultancy Haberz Limited in Baker Street in London on 12th of November 2020 at 4.00 till 6.00 p.m. Not only Sherlock Holmes has is current office there now we follow to bring the culture and art scene of our City Graz and our county Styria out into the world.

Due to the artworks being sent to London already with end of October,  I would like to announce that the exhibition is closing on 31st of October. New opening hours: Thursday & Friday 2.00 till 5.00 p.m. and Saturday 11.00 a.m. till 2.00 p.m.

For those who can not make it here an one hour curatorial tour through Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt by Daniela Haberz, M.A. in English language: 

Due to new regulations of the federal government and today’s chamber of commerce regulations we cancel the finissage and as well shorten the exhibition by a week.

We  already counted 700 visitors so far and I would say that in turbulent times like theses it can be considered a successful outcome.

Yesterday, along strict guidelines of the ministry of education and federal government laws we held a school workshop, mainly outdoors and with access to the exhibition for five students on each floor only at a time.

At this point I would like to thank professor Helga Kikel and my favourite students 3 c from Akademisches Gymnasium Graz, Austria for being part of Art Arc/ Bridging by means of Art and am looking forward to exhibit their artworks inspired by the exhibition next year in October/ November 2021 in the framework of Art & Craft taking place as part of Visiting Schlossberg Mountain 2021. The travel of the students work to London in 2021 after we close is ahead too and plans are to invite people to come to London with me as a guide to explore British culture, food and sports in October 2021 during Frieze Week 2021. Please write to me if you are interested to hear more or be put on our mailing list under: dhaberz@artconsultancyhaberz.org

Any kid or student, that would like to hand in a drawing or artwork for this exhibition is more than welcome to call me in Austria under: +43 664 182 8678 or in England: +44 759 265 7030 or drop me a short note under: dhaberz@artconsultancyhaberz.org

Ausstellungseinladung/ Invitation Card: Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt 2020

The next exhibition opening in the framework of Visiting Schlossberg Mountain 2020 will open on Friday, 2nd  of October 2020 at 4.00 until 7.00 p.m. and presents the artists Tonino Gotarelli as master of mixed media painting approach in a co-operation with the Fondazione Gottarelli in Imola, Italy and currently active painters. From Germany Reiner Heidorn, and from Austria, Rene Berghold, Martin Brischnik, Walter Köstenbauer, Max Kulich, Elisabeth Pfniss, Wendelin Pressl Susanne Wolte and Katharina Zussner.

The exhibition takes place in the framework of the exhibition series Visiting Schlossberg Mountain 2020 and is curated by Daniela Haberz  M.A. as well serving as recommendation for Collection Acquisition in my role as a Wealth Adviser for Art as Investment.

As Barbara Rosen established in a symposium on Donald Judd in a panel discussion titled Is Easle Painting Dead? with Larry Bannard, Larry Poons and Robert Rauschenberg on 10th of November 1966 the artists were asked for their perspective on being a painter and having finally chosen this medium as primary one in their career or not. Like stated a painter is simply not good enough for any other medium that’s why they are stuck with painting as a creative output sent a controversial message.

Spinning this controversial point of view  further, my curatorial choice of contemporary painters shows current practise in this medium with a today approach on the often considered rusty technique, mainly known by the general public as oil painting on canvas hanging in art history museums or showcasing well established artists in large survey retrospectives.

Paintings Painted/ Malerei Gemalt further references an exhibition called Painting 2.0 shown at Tate Modern and provides a new and fresh perspective on a ‘dying?’ medium.

That’s left for the visitor to decide, whom we welcome back to the Bell Tower on Schlossberg Graz with the second exhibition in this year 2020. The art book on Alfredo Barsuglia will be presented to the public that day during the opening ceremony on 2nd of October 2020 starting from 4.00 p.m. until 7.00 p.m.

The latest limited edition art book on Alfredo Barsuglia’s exhibition Horizon in the framework of Visiting Schlossberg Mountain Oct/ Nov 2019 written by Daniela Haberz, M.A. has been published. The book includes Barsuglia’s project Zeitsprung/ Time Jump, 2019-2040 for the Sculpture Garden on the River Mur curated and headed by Daniela Haberz, M.A. and has been inaugurated on 10th of September 2020 at 4.30 until 6.00 p.m. at the Grünanger Playground & Skateboard Park.

We would like to take the time to announce our latest co-operation with Hungary based Art Consultancy Lavor Collective: http://www.lavorcollective.com

and Victory Art, Rotterdam: https://www.victoryart.eu

All my best and I am looking forward to engage in thorough discussion on painting,
