For one more week, until October 12th, there’s still time to see Benjamin Nachtigall’s exhibition “Symbiose” at Galerie Gerersdorfer. And, after last week’s busy art fair time, I’d really recommend a visit – it is nice to see something more ironic and easy for once.
The artist, born in Vienna in 1988, shows medium-sized ceramic figurines of people in romantically philosophic poses, who on the one side are contemporarily (and symbiotically?) rooted with their mobile phones, laptops or a floating tyre, but on the other side have (symbiotically?) lemons, artichokes or, for instance, a blueberry for heads. The outcome seems friendly, though gracefully disrespectful, lapsingly human, and unbitterly serious.
I, for my part, really liked the exhibition.
