Vienna Secession Presents Eva Schlegel
Eva Schlegel, exhibition model (detail), 2005.


VIENNA, AUSTRIA.- Secession, Association of Visual Artists Vienna Secession, presents Eva Schlegel, on view through June 26, 2005. Eva Schlegel's work includes photographs, objects, and installations concerned with the interaction of objects and perception, especially with the contradictions und ruptures that frequently occur in this relationship. In many of her works, meaning is constructed by consciously mobilizing the potential of associations and fathoming its depth. Her engagement with concealing and revealing, disclosure and discovery investigates structures of desire and legibility immanent to the image. For her exhibition at the Secession Eva Schlegel developed a site-specific installation that takes up the parameters of the architecture in order to reinterpret them.

Central elements of Eva Schlegel's engulfing installation for the Hauptraum of the Secession are the lead wall paneling and a big mirror surface on the floor. The hermetic heavy metal insulation of the lateral walls and the reflection of the light-flooded ceiling in the mirrored floor result in an architectural redefinition of the exhibition space: The openings to the bottom and top emphasize the vertical axis. In addition, the mirrors cause a reversal of top and bottom by ripping virtual holes into the floor and dissolving it under the viewers' feet.
