Paper in its various and surprising appearances is the material as well as the focus of this international show. The exhibition occupies the interior spaces around the chapel of the Seitenstetten Abbey, its garden and orchard – creating a mulitfaceted presentation of paper art by four excellent artists of the field:

Gjertrud Hals | Norway
Robbin Silverberg | USA
Sigi Schraube | Germany
I will have an installation along a 14 meter wall & in the orchard, part of the on-going series called Anamnesis: The Opposite of Forgetting. It is a posting wall of announcements, ads, posters & detritus along with a sound & video piece focused on memory and healing: Nothing Is, Until Uttered in a Clear Voice.
The exhibition is open during the office hours oft the Bildungshaus from Monday through Saturday from 8 – 17 h, Sundays from 10 – 15 Uhr. The entrance is free.
The show was curated by Renate Habinger | http://www.habinger.at

the book works with four texts: A synopsis of the Judgment of Solomon fable, excerpts from the poem, “The Word” by Pablo Neruda, a text fragment based on the artist’s dream, and her eulogy to her mother, along with photographs of birds nests.
