Desire and obsession in How far to open up? at Forum Stadtpark Feb 17

14 February 2017

The How far to open up? group exhibition is on at Graz’s Forum Stadtpark, opening February 17 and running to February 25. 

Organised by Florentine Muhry and Cathrin Mayer, the show features works by over 20 artists, including Gina Folly, Hanne LippardPhilipp Timischl, Michaela Schweighofer, Fabian LeitgebSamantha Bohatsch and Rosa Rendl, among others. The opening night will host performances by Alizee Lenox, Anna Barfuss, Barbara Kapusta and Battle-ax.

Accompanying the event is a text by Muhry who analyses the “longing, desire, obsession, and the projections resulting therefrom” that make up the basis of the exhibition. Looking at ephemerality, vulnerability and intimacy, the artists explore what it is to yearn, both physically, as an act of production, and mentally.
