THE FARAWAY LAND – BORDERS ARE ONLY IN THE MIND

Fr 29.09.–Su 8.10.2017

Cocktail 02.10.2017 7pm

An installation by Sebastian Menschhorn on the exhibition “300 Years of Maria Theresa”: As an eighteenth-century person, Maria Theresa adored everything Oriental and Far Eastern. Her epoch adorned its interiors with lacquered and porcelain objects to conjure up a carefree, faraway land. The designer Sebastian Menschhorn plays with elements and principles of the Rococo style: exotic fantasies, the dissolution of conceptual and physical borders, amorphous forms, hedonism and intimacy. Through his prospects and inside views, he creates a private microcosm in which faraway and near fuse in the viewer’s perception. In cooperation with the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory Augarten, Kohlmaier, and J. & L. Lobmeyr. Short guided tours with curator Elfriede Iby. Talk with Ilsebill Barta, the scientific head of the Imperial Furniture Collection, and with Sebastian Menschhorn. Rounded off with a cocktail. From 29.9. to 2.11., visitors to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK who identify themselves as such qualify for reduced admission. Attending the short guided tours, talk, and cocktail reception on 2.10. is free of charge.

Exhibition until 29.11.
