PERRINE LACROIX. KONTEXT(E)

opening Sat, 24/11/2018, 6.30 p.m.
at Kunsthalle Krems, Austria

Andreas Hoffer, Curator of Kunsthalle Krems

Inspired by her stay in Krems, Perrine Lacroix’s work at Kunsthalle Krems deals with the basic requirements for exhibitions as well as the layer of meaning in pictures and objects. To what extent is context or knowledge needed to interpret pictures, if one even considers this relevant at all? The artist got to know the city of Krems, its surroundings and peculiarities via the photographic medium. The public space, in particular, is the focus of her art. Using a camera and video camera, she captured the Kunsthalle Krems’ construction in her work. It was being renovated during the period of her stay. Photos and videos of the renovated, empty showrooms point towards the aura and strong impact of work, whilst also drawing attention to the void.
