SALZBURG.-Museum der Moderne Rupertinum presents today Eva Grubinger. Trespassing, on view through April 19, 2009. The artist, who was born in Salzburg in 1970 and has been living in Berlin since 1989, addresses a delicate subject in her group of installation works created for the Rupertinum: today man is caught in a contradictory social system of security and danger, deregulation and control, and he has hardly any chance to escape. The human psyche is torn between revolt and surrender, harmlessness and panic.

What serves the pleasures of sports and the anticipation of a vacation trip, all of a sudden turns into a perilous instrument; Grubinger’s photographs of fences and transitory spaces, her use of barrier tapes like those at airports and customs offices, her opaque partition walls and compacted control and cooling towers transpose the viewer into a scenario of irritating ambivalence. The objects leave many questions unanswered and provide some clues at the same time: In an unsettled world the meanings of objects change and rapidly take the form of baleful symbolisms. „Trespassing“ is the title of this exhibition which alludes to taboo areas such as prohibited zones as well as to rhetorics of power in urban areas, which use architecture as a means to direct or exclude glances and bodies or turn them into unlawful intruders. In this way normal human actions are stigmatized as abuses, gestures of everyday life are toppled. Eva Grubinger confronts the viewer with a world in which violence is lurking behind a facade of security, where firm terrain drifts into abysms, in which the perceptive individual is subjected to terrifying uncertainty.
