PETRA GELL: THE SPACE AROUND

T/abor

25.9.–3.10.2020

Space became art, architecture became image. The artist Petra Gell marked VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2020 by testing the limits of the disciplines and inviting visitors to immerse themselves in a world in which it was impossible for them to clearly differentiate between art, design, and architecture. And this was a good thing. In the flexible, communal, and multi-use working, project, production, and exhibition space T/abor, Gell devoted herself to the impact of space and the built environment on our perception: Drawn, pasted, and painted lines led us over the apparent edges of images into the space itself, which had been expanded by a series of geometrical surfaces and colors. The artist created depth, where there had been none. She altered the temperature of the floor, wall, and ceiling. Spaces were appropriated through the use of such tools as building materials, adhesive tape, and pencil – as a result of which ostensibly common objects articulated themselves as artistic content. In this way, the process of constant investigation revealed itself – on the basis of the techniques of painting, graphic design, collage, and installation – to be a playfully constructive format.
