The End

Thomas Behling: "The End", 2011, 104 x 71 x 20 cm


The Kunsthaus Raab reinvents itself completely and becomes a poetic-surreal diorama as well as a repetitive farewell ceremony. A site-specific designed sculpture exhibition treats the space in all its rawness and the various exposed time layers, as well as the existing aesthetics of an excavation site are the starting point. The exhibiting artists partly develop site-specific works and react to each other, they work with material experiments and surface effects, or they deal with the extension of reality and its contextual shift. Like a diorama in the natural history museum, the art objects are staged and arranged scenically, in combination with the space itself they create a common image and a new story. The result is a part-accessible setting in which to tell the ruins of finds of longing places and a game with reality, which takes place on the rather alchemical surfaces and materials of the individual objects and tells of the beginning and end.
