EIKON Schaufenster

With its own exhibition space, EIKON provides a unique opportunity beyond the printed medium to make art photography and media art accessible to the public. An extension of the magazine, this location becomes a presentation platform for Austrian and international art photographers and media artists, where art projects are developed on regular rotation—alongside the publication of the current issue of EIKON. EIKON Schaufenster is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm, and admission is free.

EIKON Schaufenster: Elisabeth Czihak. Being in Limbo (am 05.09.2017)

“Elisabeth Czihak’s works talk about the transformation of a seeming constant, as well as of the duration and the perseverance of architectonic bodies, traces of life and memories. Holding on to the transient, the hidden and the no longer existing, is one of the comprehensive themes of her documentary photography and the mostly abstract paper and wall drawings.” (Annette Südbeck)

With the current wallpaper-installation “Add-on”, paired with photographs arranged across the room, Czihak’s interest lies in the construction of space and its appropriation, aiming for architectonic expansion and a new sense of already given circumstances.

Elisabeth Czihak, born 1966 in Tübingen, living and working in Vienna. Studied at the University of Art and Design in Linz and the University of Arts in Berlin. Numerous exhibitions in Austria and abroad.

Anna Fabricius. Desired Reveals the Planned (am 11.05.2017)

In her work, Anna Fabricius illuminates repeatedly the idea and concept of the group, how it is constructed and in which way the individual positions him/herself within it. For her video Desired Reveals the Planned, exhibited in the EIKON Schaufenster, children take on the role of working adults, respectively a presentation of their individual conception. The young protagonists present themselves in a freely produced pantomime in front of the camera with serious facial expressions and gestures – every step and act seems precisely and deliberate. The children are free to choose their interpretation of the desired future job profile; but still, the uniformly setting and the assumingly just subtle variations in the movement evoke a feeling of repetition and monotony. With this video, the artist creates a fictive scenario that shifts between childlike freedom and wishful thinking on one side and criticism of child labor which is still present to this day on the other side.

Anna Fabricius, born 1980 in Budapest. Media artist. Study i.a. Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design (Budapest). Various participations at international exhibitions and festivals, i.a. PHOTOESPANA (Madrid), Fotofestiwal (Lodz), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Rijeka), MÜCSARNOK Kunsthalle and Magyar Nemzeti Galéria (Budapest). Living and working in Budapest. In 2012 Anna Fabricius was a guest in Vienna as Artist-in-Residence of quartier21.

EIKON Schaufenster: Edition EIKON (am 10.04.2017)

The Austrian Institute for Photography and Media Art has been publishing Edition EIKON since 1995, which comprise limited editions of signed and numbered original photographs by renowned and emerging artists. The aim of this initiative is to offer quality works of art at affordable prices, and to thereby familiarize more art lovers—particularly young generations—with photography and to encourage them to collect. By carefully selecting the artists and limiting the print runs to 30 copies on average, Edition EIKON creates a solid investment base and ensures a long-term increase in the value of these works.
The exhibition presents selected artistic positions of the Edition’s portfolio and shows a curated cross-section of the past 20 years of Edition EIKON.

Artists:
Norbert Brunner, Peter Dressler, Jürgen Klauke, Sigrid Kurz, Sissa Micheli, Ona B., Elfie Semotan, Michael Strasser, Sergei Sviatchenko, Jeanne Szilit, Andrea Witzmann, Erwin Wurm, Robert Zahornicky, Leo Zogmayer

EIKON Schaufenster: ORTHOCHROME. MOTIF - PHOTOGRAPHERS (am 08.11.2016)

Founded by Claus Prokop, Roland Rust, and Karl Ulbl in 2004, “ORTHOCHROME. Archiv für analoge Alltagsfotografie” collects, digitizes, and archives private occasional photographs and slides, primarily from the1950s and 1960s. The objective is to prevent this material in which people recorded their own lives from falling into oblivion.

In most instances, the archive has no information about the photographers. Conspicuously, the majority of shots do not show the author himself or herself: the very person whose life the private photographs were meant to document is missing from the picture.

This characteristic ambivalence between the photographer’s presence and absence is at the heart of the exhibition MOTIF – PHOTOGRAPHERS. Yet the author is not always excluded from the photograph: a few pictures from the archive feature the photographer himself of herself. They are brought face to face with a selection of ostensibly trivial standard-issue shots by unidentified authors. The sample from the collection on view in the show stands as a pars pro toto for ORTHOCHROME’s archive; recurrent motifs without immediately recognizable personal implications contrast with (sometimes unintended) evidence of individuality.

At the evening of the opening, the new issue of EIKON (#96) will be launched.

EIKON Schaufenster: NOW AND TOMORROW: Detached (am 13.09.2016)

The exhibition "Detached" explores a new possibility on the idea of reproduction—a process playing a key role in capitalism. The collage emphasizes the consecutive results of mass-production such as loss of originality, especially in art and is the method of choice of NOW AND TOMORROW. Simultaneously, the artists analyze newly formed, in other words, reproduced objects, and question the resurrection of their uniqueness after detaching them from their original context. In the unique space of the EIKON Schaufenster, the artists create a site-specific installation which separates the audience from the over-saturated, mundane environment of everyday life, while inviting us to have an innovative view on the correlation between everyday objects and ourselves.

NOW AND TOMORROW is an artist duo, founded by Sergei Sviatchenko (DK) and Noriko Okaku (UK/JP) in 2014. The artists met in July 2010 when Noriko Okaku visited Denmark. At their first meeting, the artists found out that both of them share the fascination for the magic of collage art, which naturally made them collaborate together.

At the evening of the opening, the new issue of EIKON (#95) will be launched.

EIKON Schaufenster: Elisabeth Grübl. Studio # (am 24.05.2016)

"Elisabeth Grübl layers, stacks, orders and compresses—she puts loose material together in new ways until it finally stands in the room as a cuboid and in this form poses questions to those who look at it. For her work series Studio, under construction since 2007, Grübl takes over artists’ workshops and the objects she finds in them: art works, tools used for making art works, models of art works, models of rooms for exhibiting art works, chairs, tables, computers, monitors, books, bric-a-brac and treasures. All the objects that help the host artist to meet his or her purpose are arranged by Grübl in a process of several days into a very present form in the room. She photographs this sculpture and turns it into her own work." (Franz Thalmair in EIKON #86, 32)

EIKON Schaufenster: CLAUDIA ROHRAUER. EXPECTED ENCOUNTERS (am 25.02.2016)

The need to document things in order to understand them as well as photography which obliges this desire are the center of Claudia Rohrauer’s artistic work.
Based on these thoughts, in her work EXPECTED ENCOUNTERS a woodland in Northeast Finland is turned into an experimental ground, dealing with expectations facing the unknown. Rohrauer explored the woods as a “projection screen” on several snowshoe hikes with a plastic instant camera. By blending introspection, reflection on media and pseudo-scientific methods Rohrauer creates a situational analysis: the artist herself, the camera, the film footage, the weather conditions as well as the snow turn into contributors to the work of art.

In the EIKON Schaufenster the artist creates an installation processing her experiences in Finland. In addition to the installation she shows the work NEW TERRITORY: acting as a counterpoint, this work gives us an impetus to understand photography as a method of discovering the world around us visually.

EIKON Schaufenster: Barthes, 100 (am 10.11.2015)

In spring 1979 Roland Barthes died suddenly, his last book was Camera Lucida. The small book still holds its central role within the literature of photography, maybe because of this personal incident.

Due to the 100th birthday of Roland Barthes students from the Art and Photography Class read Camera Lucida again. The students react on aspects still fascinating 35 years after the book was published and after the radical change of the photographic medium in the 1970s.

This is a cooperation between EIKON and the Art and Photography Class, Academy of fine Arts, Vienna.

Concept by Ruth Horak, supervised by Michael Höpfner.

EIKON Schaufenster: Hans-Jürgen Poëtz (am 03.09.2015)

For his site specific text-light-space-installation (12 Bytes, 2015) at EIKON Schaufenster Hans-Jürgen Poëtz transferred digital information into an analogue picture. In the opened magazine EIKON (proportionally four times enlarged) a lettering can be read in ‘computer language’. Binary code is the basis for digital information, the foundation of all electronic communication which happens by voltage change – via the opposition of two principles, while states are generated by applied and not available voltage. Information can be caught thus in the easy symbols of 0 and 1. The artist installs 96 rocker switches in the EIKON Schaufenster for this project.

Hans-Jürgen Poëtz (*12/1977) lives and works as media artist in Vienna. His artistic activity focusses on the engagement with interactions, frictions and spaces between different media types (sound, sculpture/ object, light, video, photography and architecture). He studied Intermedia Art with Sound-Art Pioneer Bernhard Leitner at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and History of Art at the University of Vienna.

EIKON Schaufenster: Michael Part (am 26.02.2015)

Michael Part’s work is created by becoming intensely involved in photo-chemical processes. The artist produces his monochromatic green pictures by the procedure of staining. In this project the stained gelatin is directly applied to the EIKON Schaufenster’s glass front, and is hereby subjected to light exposure. The malachite oxalate, which has not been commercially used now for some time due to its poor light fastness, changes constantly during the time of presentation. This creates new shades of color. The gelatin coating alters under the viewer’s very eyes.

The compromise with reality is something I still need to find (am 13.11.2014)

For this year’s European Month of Photography, EIKON collaborates with LORIS, the Berlinbased producers’ gallery working on the methodological interfaces of photography, video, and installation art.

EIKON sends the art of two young Austrian photographers to the gallery’s space in Berlin; conversely, the artists behind LORIS will show
their work at the EIKON Schaufenster. The presentation in Vienna takes up the general theme of Berlin’s Month of Photography, “Upheavals and Utopias—The Other Europe,” with an exploration of the German capital.

The artists believe that “Upheavals and Utopias,” far from being purely contemporary phenomena, are pervasive in history. The title of their exhibition, The compromise with reality is something I still need to find, frames a similar idea: Can a process of profound change ever reach a conclusion? Might not the principle of social progress imply that every upheaval begets a new utopia—that after the transition is before the transition?

The works examine concrete instances of systemic change as manifest in international urban planning as well as the “coming of age” as a phase of profound change in the individual biography, and address questions of originality and derivativeness in performative experiments that deconstruct the utopian idea of an “integral whole.”

Sophie Aigner, Ulrike Hannemann, Andy Heller, Ruth Hommelsheim, Ulrike Kolb, Oliver Krebs, Julia Müller, Nina Wiesnagrotzki

EIKON Schaufenster: BEZUGSRAHMEN (am 04.09.2014)

For topical reasons, EIKON Schaufenster—a presentation area for Photography and Media Art—transforms into an alleged blank space, where empty frames are shown. These (picture)frames offer the possibility to establish a connection between a presentation and exhibition space and the viewer. On the one hand, they are used to reference to UNFRAMED (September 9—19, 2014, Galerie Raum mit Licht), where unframed art will be made consumable. On the other hand, the blank space invites the spectator to create his own reference: They force him to combine different elements, because relation isn’t given beforehand. Not least, it deals with active interaction, which connects the small-format surrogates of Edition EIKON with the allocated frame.

About Edition EIKON
The “Austrian Insitute for Photography and Media Art” has been publishing the Edition EIKON since 1995. Signed and numbered original photographs by prominent and up-and-coming artists are offered in limited editions. The goal of this initiative is to offer quality art at affordable prices and, by doing so, introducing more and more people to photography and encouraging them to collect. By way of a cautious selection of the artist and limiting the editions to a run of around thirty, a good investment basis is created, ensuring an increase in value in the long term.

Markus Jeschaunig: Barrel You! (am 04.03.2014)

EIKON invites to the opening of Markus Jeschaunig's exhibition and presents the double issue EIKON #84–85!

EIKON #84–85 presents itself not only with new contents but in a new look. On more than 130 pages, it shows new categories, a specific focus in each issue and of course a new layout.

Markus Jeschaunig dealt with the direct materiality and the excessive consumption of fossil fuels. 

BARREL YOU!
Petroleum installation, 2013

An installation in the form of a large hourglass that is filled with a resource we never see in its pure form, but strongly dominates our daily lives: petroleum.

The installation makes the resource of crude oil visible in its pure form, dropping towards the future and finite end of it. The volume of the upper glass bottle is two-tenths of a barrel (1 bbl. = 158.987294928 Liters), the international trading unit of petroleum. The drip interval is matching with the exhibition period and lets dropping down about 32 liters of the precious raw material continuously.

WALTER NIEDERMAYR: THE REPLICANTS (am 14.11.2013)

On November 14, 2013 EIKON presents Walter Niedermayr´s video work “The Replicants” at EIKON SchAUfenster.  

The change in alpine landscape through human activities is a permanent feature of Niedermayr`s artwork. In his work, Walter Niedermayr weakens the ideal of an untouched natural landscape, and brings the effects of winter tourism in focus.  Mostly done in polyptychs, his photographic series forbid the usual point of view of a landscape as a panorama and forces the recipient to a new perception. Niedermayr regards his work not merely as a criticism of the handling with landscape. It`s up to the recipients to express their criticism.

“The alpine space is a topography where society manifests itself in an exemplary way in the most diverse variations of our consumer world.”–Walter Niedermayr

More information on the artist and his work in EIKON #83. Furthermore EIKON offers a new limited Edition EIKON of Walter Niedermayr:

EIKON SchAUfenster: Roberta Lima (am 03.09.2013)

EIKON invites you to the Opening of Roberta Limas 2’20” on September 3, 2013!

The relationship between body and space is a main focus in Roberta Lima’s work – as well as the use of media as a reflection of the representation of art. This relationship leads to an examination of the function of galleries, which the artist not only use as a space for displaying artworks, but also as a site for production. Electrical appliances, such as computers, cameras, printers, etc. become co-performers to investigate mass media communication and reproduction.
In 2012 Roberta Lima also started to work up the traces and objects of her earlier performances in a sculptural way, adapting them to a new spatial context. At the EIKON SchAUfenster she shows a photographic reproduction that has been widely showed in other contexts: “The Rings” (2005), originally framed and hung on a wall, is now spread as simple print outs in the entire place. Produced every two minutes and twenty seconds during the opening, the prints fall in place, form new shapes, define the space, and evoke the “street-like” characteristic of the quarter21 passage. Construction and deconstruction, accessibility and restriction, contribute in this work for creating a dialectics of Photography, as well as of the (de-)personalisation of the artist.

EIKON SchAUfenster: SISSA MICHELI (am 14.05.2013)

EIKON presents SISSA MICHELI'S ICE CREAM & POLITICS and invites you to the Opening on May 14, 2013!

The essence of the various medial realizations of Sissa Micheli's artworks—photography, film, installations and sculptural objects—is the complex and epic level of meaning. What you can see always refer to something else—to a continuation of the story, to an additional readability or one or more further interpretations. Micheli’s profound curiosity and innocent amazement—related to the ancient “wondering about”—is the philosophical base for questioning existence. She questions the familiar, common, and apparently obvious and turns it on its own axis, as to control their significance—always serious, generally with a desire for stories, for the visual (arts) and always with a hint of irony. Her strategy is to reveal and to hide respectively dress up likewise. (Christina Nägele)

EIKON SchAUfenster: Klaus Pichler (am 21.02.2013)

Klaus Pichler presents his latest series "One Third" at the EIKON SchAUfenster: According to a UN study one third of the world's food goes to waste - the largest part thereof in the industrialized nations of the global north. Equally, 925 million people around the world are threatened by starvation.
The series "One Third" describes the connection between individual wastage of food and globalized food production. Rotting food, arranged into elaborate still lifes, portrays an abstract picture of the wastage of food whilst the accompanying texts take a more in depth look at the roots of this issue.
"One Third" goes past the sell by date in order to document the full dimensions of the global food waste.

Please find further information on Klaus Pichler and his series "One Third" in EIKON #81!

In September 2013, Klaus Pichler´s series will also be exhibited at Anzenberger Gallery!

EIKON SchAUfenster: Martin Osterider: inside clouds (am 04.09.2012)

Martin Osterider (*1964) converts the EIKON SchAUfenster into a space installation using photographs and other graphic materials. In doing so photographs and images from different cultural as well as local contexts are put in relation to one another and will be enmeshed in a collage formally as well as with regard to contents. In this way new photographic objects and pictorial worlds arise and open up a room for association and novel legibility.

EIKON SchAUfenster. Schule Friedl Kubelka: !! (am 08.05.2012)

Within the frame of the “MQ Summer of Fashion”, the EIKON SchAUfenster will be arranged with works by students of artistic photography and independent film under the direction of Anja Manfredi and Friedl Kubelka.

Under the title “!!” the up-and-coming artists will present current works on “Art and Fashion”. The content of the conceptual works embraces essential reflections to philosophical thought-provoking impulses. Questions concerning identification and individualisation of and through clothing accumulate critical contemplations about societal norms, constraints and liberties. By reference to cinematic and photographic contributions the presentation of the human being as the main actor of our consumer society is addressed as well as the self-reinforcing phenomenon fashion itself, fashion as an expression of personality as well as tool of self-staging.

EIKON SchAUfenster: Julia Müller-Maenher & Astrid Peterle. Poundbury

Julia Müller-Maenher und Astrid Peterle question with their work the anachronism, which the colony Poundbury, an urban expansion of Dorchester which is based on basic principles of the British heir apparent Prince Charles and his Prince’s Foundation, underlies. Which tradition will be reinstalled here through the denial of recent paradigms? Where is the desire for old values and forms arising from? How utopian is the idea of a resurrection of last ways of living and rooming?Poundbury

EIKON SchAUfenster: Nilbar Güres . Undressing (am 14.09.2011)

In her video performance „Undressing“ the young Turkish artist Nilbar Güres who lives in Vienna now reflects the situation of Muslim women living in Austria. Güres shows that veiling is a personal statement incorporating a biographic element: different forms of putting the veil on or the conscious choice of the fabric´s pattern refer to a self-governed individuality and identity of the respective women.

Opening: Wednesday, September 11, 2011 at 7 pm
Where: Electric Avenue, quartier 21/MQ, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna
Exhibition Duration: September 15 - November 12, 2011

EIKON SchAUfenster: Manfred Grübl & Werner Schrödl (am 13.05.2011)

Manfred Grübl und Werner Schrödl widmen das EIKON SchAUfenster zur Plakatfläche um: Anhand einer überdimensionalen, fotografischen Momentaufnahme zeigen Manfred Grübl und Werner Schrödl ihre aktuelle Rauminstallation in der Galerie Momentum, wodurch die Verschränkung zweier Räume – der Decken-Lichtinstallation von Martin Vesely als Original auf der einen und dessen zertrümmerte Kopie auf der anderen Seite – eine vom Besucher begehbare und dadurch sich permanent transformierende Raumsequenz, ein COPY DISASTER, entsteht.

Im Gegensatz zu ihren meist nur für einen relativ kurzen Zeitraum bestehenden Installationen bzw. Interventionen, zeigt die im EIKON SchAUfenster präsentierte Momentaufnahme wie sich die beiden Künstler selbst als Akteure in ihre Installation eingebracht haben und so auf Dauer in das Bild eingeschrieben und fixiert wurden.

Ausstellungsdauer: 14.05. – 08.09.2011

Exhibition - EIKON SchAUfenster: Mathias Kessler (am 18.02.2010)

"Nowhere to be found" von Mathias Kessler im EIKON SchAUfenster

Dieter Buchhart hat in den Artist Pages der EIKON Ausgabe #69 über dessen Arbeit geschrieben:

Kessler markiert die schwere Unterscheidbarkeit zwischen kultiviertem Naturvorbild und dessen Repräsentationen und entblößt zugleich das häufige Scheitern dieser Repräsentationsversuche von Natur, die trotz perfekter Darstellungen nicht authentisch wirken. Denn die ideale Landschaft, die unberührte Natur hat nie existiert, war stets Fiktion.“

Ausstellungsdauer:
18.02.2010 - 03.06.2010
Eröffnung: 17.02.2010, 18:00-21:00 Uhr

EIKON SchAUfenster | Norbert Brunner| 18. Februar – 22. Mai 2009

Am Dienstag, 17.02.2009 eröffnet EIKON die neue Ausstellung im EIKON SchAUfenster, Wiens neuer Präsentationsplattform für österreichische Foto- und Medienkunst, mit Norbert Brunner, dem ausgewählten Künstler des diesjährigen Wiener Opernballs.

Mit seinem für den Opernball entworfenen Taschenobjekt "Wiener Blut" zitiert Brunner nicht nur den berühmten Walzer von Johann Strauß, sondern reflektiert auch die Verschmelzung der verschiedenen Kulturen, die Kraft der Multikulturalität, von der sowohl die Wiener als auch die österreichische Kultur in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart so stark profitiert haben.
 
Nach dem Opernball am 19. Februar sind die limitierten und handsignierten Objekte im Shop der Wiener Staatsoper sowie bei EIKON erhältlich.

Im Anschluss an die Ausstellungseröffnung präsentieren wir die druckfrische Ausgabe EIKON #65 und laden Sie herzlich ein, mit uns darauf anzustoßen.
 
Wir freuen uns schon auf Ihr Kommen!

Eröffnung: 17. Februar, 18 Uhr
Ort: Electric Avenue/quartier21/MQ Wien
