DESCRIPTION

lighten skin

This exhibition demonstrates once more what great scholar of experiment Birgit Jürgenssen was. Approximately twenty examples will illustrate a working period of only six years, which document in a dreamy quality the reversed movement of floating time.

Photography joins with silk, voile, gauze and evolves a hypnotic appeal. Elements of the fantastic commence their own life. An idiosyncratic timidity to abandon herself as a soulful artist closes the view to the chamber of the heart. Still it remains abundantly clear, fabric and photography tension new rooms, frigorific fire … elegance.

Birgit Jürgenssen (1949-2003) was an Austrian artist.

Recent publications (Gabriele Schor, Abigail Solomon-Godeau: Birgit Jürgenssen, 2009; Heike Eipeldauer, Gabriele Schor: Birgit Jürgenssen, exhibition catalogue, 2010) and exhibitions (et al. Bank Austria Kunstforum, Vienna, 2011) have lightened her life and oeuvre in thelast years.
