Ariane Hagl

Exhibition: “Aufgerissen” (“Ripped open”)

The paintings and collages exhibited in the Schloss address different motives and topics. The black and white collages on the ground floor in the Ostflügel show pieces of newspaper shaped into figures by the painter. On other works, she formed readable headlines from draped newspaper. These collages are supposed to depict today’s flood of communication and its impact on society. In the halls of the library administration as well as in the Central Lending Library, there are colorful works in which colors and shapes blur and the artist’s openness towards artistic processes is reflected.
Hagl likes to exhibit in public places where people are on the move every day and can perceive art as part of everyday life. Her artworks are selected to match the architecture as well as the themes of the locations. They are deliberately untitled in order for the viewers to experience them for themselves and form their own impression.

The exhibition was officially opened on 26 November 2019 at 6 p.m. on the ground floor in the Schloss Ostflügel.
