With Arrivals, Galerie Charim warmly and collegially welcomes this exhibition project to its art space at Schleifmühlgasse 1a. Arrivals is a group exhibition by Gregor Podnar gallery, which also announces its arrival from Berlin to Vienna.
Arrivals is a reunion of artists, some of whom have been known to the Austrian art public for some time, such as Goran Petercol’s light objects, which were on view at Galerie Grita Insam in Vienna in the 1990s. Vadim Fishkin made the dome of the Vienna Secession glow with his heartbeat in 1996. Dan Perjovschi’s drawings appeared early in 2003 at the Graz Rotor and in 2005 at the Generali Foundation in Vienna and on the walls of the Lentos Museum in Linz…
Arrivals is a recollection of memory while at the same time looks towards the future. After increasing dominance of art fairs in the last two decades, the relative standstill of the culture industry in 2020/2021 and emerging digital markets, we ask ourselves again what role the gallery has as a place of encounter and art experience. With the change of location of a gallery in the internationally oriented art business, the degree of activity of the scene of a city or region is also measured anew.
Memories are an irreplaceable part of cultural and artistic creation, they help us to understand the world and to gain experience. A remedy for an overly retrospective, sometimes transfiguring view, however, is the poetic power of works of art, which often reaches beyond the written word. With Arrivals, the focus should consequently be on the works on display and their artists. This is how we arrived, to move on.
CHARIM, Schleifmühlgasse 1a, 1040 Vienna, Austria, Wed.- Thu. – Fri. 2 – 6 pm and by appointment
