Welcome: Mag. Gabi Madersbacher, Chair Verein am Polylog

Introduction: Dr. Günther Moschig, Curator

Opening: Ms. Hedi Wechner, Major of Wörgl

Performance: Infinite Play by Margret Wibmer

 

 

The exhibition is a dialogue between Anna Baumgart and Margret Wibmer based on a shared interest in participatory performances, testing the boundaries of a garment and the relation between bodies, objects and spaces.

 

Anna Baumgart considers garments in the sense of Merleau-Ponty, as an extension of the body that aids in the construction of social and individual identities. Margret Wibmer, based on a critique of standardization related to industrial production, introduces the idea of separating body and garment for the emergence of a new dialogue. She considers the interrelatedness of body, culture, garment, movement and time itself as material.

 

On view will be video works, photo-based works and sculptural pieces.
