Academy of Fine Arts Vienna Kurzbauergasse: Katrine Bobek & Iben Zorn “A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose”

Vienna, May 11-12, 2017, https://www.akbild.ac.at

A small exhibition in the Academy sculpture studios. It was one room with a glass wall. Inside were 3 works: A sticker with a text/visual poem pasted on the glass (Zorn), a disassembled glove (Zorn) and a medium-sized painting (Bobek). At first it felt quite empty and like… “That’s it, really?” But at a second look, I could feel the attention to detail and also the relationships which existed between the three exhibits. The little poem that substituted the artist statement did not try to explain, but it rounded up the mood.
