VIENNA.- At the 21er Raum, a new exhibition floor space to feature young contemporary positions, recent works by artists living and working in Austria are being presented every six weeks. The room’s programme has been introduced with the Australian-born artist Andy Boot in November. Now the 21er Raum is presenting the Austrian artist Constanze Schweiger.

The exhibition Scrollwork by Constanze Schweiger revolves around various aesthetic phenomena related to painting, fashion and social ties. The artist translates specific elements from her blog into exhibition objects and its texts into printed form. In the same way as Scrollwork sometimes resembles acanthus leaves, sometimes an abstract pattern, the exhibition oscillates between objects that tend in different directions and yet still form a coherent whole.

At intervals of six weeks, altogether eight exhibitions per year – mostly one-person shows, but also small group exhibitions – are to be presented at the 21er Raum. The focus is on most recent contemporary positions represented by artists living and working in Austria. Centrally located on the upper floor, this room within a room is set off architecturally from the rest of the building, yet simultaneously blends in with the overall structure. Designed by Nadim Vardag, it reflects the works of the collection and the building’s interior architecture on its mirrored outer walls.

Recent exhibitions include shows at school, Vienna (2012); Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg, Salzburg (2012); Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Vienna (2011); Ve.Sch, Vienna (2011) and Magazin, Vienna (2010). After Constanze Schweigers diploma at University of Applied Arts Vienna, the artist completed postgraduate studies at Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, Netherlands. Schweiger, born 1970 in Salzburg, lives and works in Vienna.
