by a gently anarchist vein, Esther Stocker shakes the foundations of
the grid: breaking through the mental fence of Euclidean geometry,
she opens up new spaces and liberated systems of order for us.
Advancing into the space of the psyche, Guido Kucsko wonders if our
fear for freedom is in fact also a fear of freedom. How much freedom
should we give up in order to preserve it? Pablo Chiereghin
interferes with the (moral) laws between private and public spheres
in order to cause irritation in the urban context. Hana Usui devotes
herself to the macabre limits of nuclear ‘death zones’ and the
people who cross them time and again out of love for their country.
Chiereghin is an Italian artist living and working in Vienna. He
works with site-specific projects based on social and political
dynamics. His actions, performances, and interventions take place in
reality. His practice finds fertile ground where behaviours and rules
cause entropy and discrepancies.
Pablo Chiereghin has appeared
at, among other places, andata.ritorno Gallery in Geneva, CCC
Strozzina in Florence, das weisse haus in Vienna, Galerie Laurence
Bernard in Geneva, Kunst Haus Wien, Künstlerhaus in Vienna,

Stocker is an Italian artist living and working in Vienna.
Horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines and a palette reduced to
black, white, and grey form the basis of Esther Stocker’s grid
structures. No matter whether she creates (wall) paintings, objects,
room-size installations, photographs, or videos, the artist is always
interested in breaking up the laws of Euclidean space and the
patterns of perception involved.
