viennacontemporary | Bildrecht SOLO Award
After a preview tour of viennacontemporary 2019, a jury of experts found the presentation to be an outstanding artist and gallery statement in an international context.
In her installations, Marina Sula examines ambivalent systemic dynamics between individuals and society in relation to the logic of institutions and the reception of art. With her exhibition booth’ artistic approach to a waiting room, Sula connects two spheres and reflects on social and artistic standardizations, time, consumption, and hedonism. The interplay between location reference, various contemporary media and aesthetics, as well as the involvement of the audience was particularly convincing for the jury.
Maximilian Geymüller (Kunsthalle Wien), Roman Grabner (BRUSEUM, Neue Galerie Graz), Nina Schedlmayer (freie Kunstkritikerin), Hemma Schmutz (LENTOS & NORDICO Linz), Tina Teufel (Museum der Moderne Salzburg), Günter Schönberger (Bildrecht Wien).
The viennacontemporary | Bildrecht SOLO Award acknowledges the work of artists and galleries alike. The awarded artistic position should demonstrate great potential, while, at the same time, the gallery’s special commitment is required.
