"Tàpies erweitert den Raum, ohne ihn zu vergrößern."

(Carl Vogel in: Tàpies, Das graphische Werk 1947–1972, Hrsg. Mariuccia Galfetti)

Anlässlich der 40. Art Cologne zeigt die Galerie Boisserée in den Kölner Galerieräumen eine umfangreiche graphische Sammlung des inzwischen 82jährigen, international arrivierten, spanischen Künstlers Antoni Tàpies.

Der Maler Antoni Tàpies ist beherrscht als brillanter Graphiker alle originalgraphischen Techniken und hat es – wie nur ganz wenige seiner Zeitgenossen - geschafft, die Kraft seiner Malerei auch in der Druckgraphik zu fesseln. Im Bereich der abstrakten Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts gibt es kaum einen Künstler, der eine derartige Vielzahl ausdruckstarker Radierungen in sein künstlerisches Werk integrieren konnte. Viele seiner, zum Teil mit Collagen und Übermalungen versehenen Radierungen besitzen eine plastische Qualität, die weit über das hinausgeht, was man bei Druckgraphik allgemein gewohnt ist. Dies liegt u.a. an der sogenannten, von Henri Goetz erfundenen Carborundumtechnik, die es zum Beispiel ermöglicht, Abdrücke von Textilien (Taschentücher, Unterwäsche) in den Druckprozess der Radierung einzubeziehen. Die über 60 graphische Arbeiten umfassende, in ihrem Umfang derzeit wohl einmalige Verkaufsausstellung beinhaltet unterschiedliche Formate vorwiegend aus den 70er und 80er Jahren. Zu den frühesten Arbeiten gehört eine Lithographie in Schwarz und Grau mit Prägedruck aus dem Jahre 1960. Großformate sind u.a. die über 120 cm breiten farbigen Radierungen "Formes i vernis" sowie "Roig i negre 5" aus den 80er Jahren. Alle Exponate sind in dem bisher in 3 Bänden erschienenen, von Galfetti begonnenen und von Homs fortgeführten Werkverzeichnis der Graphik von Antoni Tàpies dokumentiert.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, with a text from Núria Homs, Fundació Antoni Tàpies Barcelona (96 pages and 68 coloured images, price Euro 15).

Auszüge der Ausstellung werden auch auf unserem Stand G 2 in Halle 05.1 auf der diesjährigen Art Cologne zu sehen sein.

The Berlin-residing Austrian Xenia Hausner has presently taken a strong position as an internationally represented artist of figurative painting.

In addition to single-artist exhibitions in the Kunsthalle Wien and the Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig (1997), the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum in Berlin and the Staatlichen Russischen Museum St. Petersburg (2000), the Rupertinum and the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg (2001), her work has been shown at various international art fairs over the last few years, including Art Cologne, Art Chicago, and Art Basel Miami (2003), Arco Madrid, Art Chicago and Art Basel (2004), as well as Art Palmbeach (2006).

Xenia Hausner's main subject is the human being. She doesn't investigate the subjects' external appearance as much as she stages intimate pairings, thereby showing real characters participating in imaginary stories. She describes experiences in human relationships – love, loneliness, longing – in a space akin to a private, painted stage, an experimental field and a place of examination, whose players enact no other role than their own self-awareness and whose audience is reduced to a single viewer. Her figures - whether classic acrylic painted on hard masonite or her painterly work on photography - are able to cast a spell on the viewer due to their sensuous intensity. The subject, appearing as in a snapshot, fades into the background.

En-route from photograph to painting, the artist achieves an enormous escalation of expressive intensity, in which the work process becomes clearly visible. In the conflicting worlds of reality and imagination, the works win an almost lyrical tone, loaning a new accent to her art.

Photography, originally the artist's visual aid for memory, was used as an "instrument" to draw on for the work process, as well as the composition of the arrangements, and finally, installed in the "vestibule" of the painting. She then emerged as an element of a partial collage in her large-scale paintings. In the most recent "mixed media" works, Xenia Hausner continues to explore the analogous relationship of Photography and Color, creating a certain tension as she sets one against the other. The overdimensional photograph becomes a stimulating subsurface for the application of color and for the painterly process that follows.

The Cologne gallery exhibition will feature the most recent work from 2006 side-by-side with a few works, shown at the artist's last two museum exhibitions, in the LudwigMuseum in Koblenz (20.11.05–29.01.06) and in the KunstHaus Wien in Vienna (15.02.06–14.05.06).
