In 2013, the Albertina is dedicating the Austrian artist Sonja Gangl her first solo museum exhibition. In her large-scale drawings, Gangl enlarges details and focuses on particular image sections. The new works on show at the Albertina feature human eyes, in pairs and one at a time. The eye’s ability to establish contact with the world makes it an instrument that can bridge distances. However, being a most vulnerable organ, it also needs to keep its distance from a menacing world.
German photographer and author Rolf Sachsse, who holds a chair for Design History and Theory at the Academy of Fine Arts Saar, will talk to the artist about her works shown for the first time in the exhibition “Dancing with the End”.
