Atelier 030202 – str. Sfanta Vineri nr. 11 Bucuresti

Artist Talk: Doris Mayer (Austria), 8 Aprilie 2010, ora 19

In contextul mai amplu al expozitiei romano-austriece intitulata Idila de la Atelier 030202, proiect initiat de Forumul Cultural Austriac, curatoarea Olivia Nitis o invita la dialog pe artista Doris Mayer, care isi va prezenta activitatea cu accent pe lucrarea selectata pentru proiectul Idila, XL_ extra low # 02_THE WEDDING, si pe alte doua lucrari video: XL_extra low # 01 si DANAE remixed. Doris Mayer este o artista care traieste si lucreaza la Viena. Este interesata de arta video prin intermediul careia exploreaza anumite aspecte ale vietii sociale filtrate prin experiente personale. Aspecte legate de gen, asteptari sociale si prejudecati sunt adesea prezentate ca o serie de comentarii ironice.

Publicul interesat de arta contemporana, de arta video si de un dialog cu o artista austriaca, este invitat sa ia parte la eveniment.

Artiste din generatii diferite, din Romania si din Austria, active pe scena artistica internationala – Irina Botea, Delia Popa, Magda Pelmus, Simona Vilau, Cristina Garabetanu, Alexandra Bodea, Marilena Preda Sanc, Lena von Lapschina, Petra Sterry, Chloe Potter, Doris Mayer, Eva Ursprung si Eva Schlegel – prezinta vizunea lor contemporana asupra notiunii de Idila. In spatiul cultural European, Idila a reprezentat o forma de realitate ideala, senina si protectoare, in raport cu realitatea sociala existenta. Proiectul Idila isi propune sa urmareasca in context socio-cultural, modalitatile in care artistele din doua spatii culturale diferite (Romania si Austria) se raporteaza la conceptul de Idila, cat este el de nuantat, de relevant sau de vetust in contemporaneitate.

Proiectul Idila este primul eveniment din cadrul AUSTRIAN CURATOR FUNDING PROGRAM al Forumului Cultural Austriac, finantat de statul austriac si prezentat cu sprijinul Raiffeisen Bank.

Atelier 030202 – 11 Sfanta Vineri Street Bucharest

Artist Talk: Doris Mayer (Austria), 8th of April 2010, 7 p.m.

Under the large context of the Austrian-Romanian exhibition called Idyll from Atelier 030202, initiated by the Austrian Cultural Forum, curator Olivia Nitis invites the Austrian artist Doris Mayer to talk about her work with a special focus on the work selected for Idyll project, XL_ extra low # 02_THE WEDDING, and on other 2 videos: XL_extra low # 01 and DANAE remixed. Doris Mayer is an artist who lives and works in Vienna. Her main focus is video art in which she explores certain aspects of social life filtered through her personal experiences. Aspects related to gender, social expectations and prejudice are mostly revealed as ironic comments.

The public interested in contemporary art, video art and in a dialogue with an Austrian artist is invited to take part to this event.

Austrian and Romanian artists active on the international art scene – Irina Botea, Delia Popa, Magda Pelmus, Simona Vilau, Cristina Garabetanu, Alexandra Bodea, Marilena Preda Sanc, Lena Lapschina, Petra Sterry, Chloe Potter, Doris Mayer, Eva Ursprung si Eva Schlegel – present their vision on the notion of Idyll in contemporary times.

In the European cultural area Idyll is usually associated with an ideal state of spirit, serene, jolly and familiar with the purpose of being an opposition to the existent reality. In the process of constructing the idyllic environment, gender roles appear unchanged in time.

The Idyll project aims to track, within the social-cultural context, the ways through which artists from two different cultures relate to this concept, as well as the extent of its relevance today.

The project Idyll is the first event of The AUSTRIAN CURATOR FUNDING PROGRAM financed by the Republic of Austria and supported by Raiffeisen Bank.

Curator: Olivia Nitis
