About the exhibition

In Herbert Brandl’s paintings, figuration, abstraction and subjective gestures are challenged, undermined and confirmed in equal measure; also, the borders and possibilities of painting, its transferability to different material carriers, are sounded out and extended into the three-dimensional. The show in the Kunsthaus Graz takes its starting point from the artist’s associatively linking, process-based working method, in which the seen, experienced and imagined encounter one another; are processed, condensed, exposed or eradicated, too. For the first time Brandl’s most important groups of works, two- and three-dimensional works and his collections (minerals, Japanese knives, carpets, the works of other artists) are gathered together, correlated, and any biographical, conceptual and material links emphasised. Moreover, objects of importance for Brandl from the Universalmuseum Joanneum collections – such as ‘Black Smoke’, ‘Blue Anthodite’ and ‘White Geese’ – are integrated into the exhibition course. The exhibition reacts to specific architecture of the Kunsthaus: the display, conceived by Brandl jointly with the designer Rainer Stadlbauer, translates the artist’s work into the spatial-architectural. As part of Ultra Hybrid an artist’s book has been created, a collection of Brandl’s photographs, which offer insight into his artistic interests and surroundings.
