Yorgos Sapountzis MICHSICH HOTEL

Opening: 20 July 2018
Duration: 21 July - 16 September 2018
Curator: Christiane Rekade

In his installations, videos and performances Yorgos Sapountzis (*1976 in Athens, lives in Berlin) brings new awareness to the places of public life, involving their present as well as their past. For his solo show at Kunst Meran he has engaged with the semi-public spaces of hotel rooms, and based on that orchestrates a scenographical sequence of situations, objects and narratives on the first two floors of the museum. Objects from hotels and materials from the artist’s studio blend into a dense narrative, which combines the visitors’ collective and personal experiences as well as memories. “I like creating chaos with my materials, which I must then put back in order,” Sapountzis says. “And more still I like the surprise and feeling of success when things work out. The process is more important than the result”.

Marilù Eustachio HEIMAT

Opening: 20 July 2018
Duration: 21 July - 16 September 2018
Curator: Christiane Rekade

In her paintings and drawings Marilù Eustachio reflects on personal experiences as well as thoughts on literature and art. To this day the artist, who was born in Merano (*1934) but lives in Rome, associates the Vinschgau valley with the feeling of home. In the past year she has approached this home in approximately 70 works on paper. For the first time a selection from the series of the same name will now be shown at Kunst Meran. They are light, fine drawings, which are reduced and focus on the essential, like memories. Alongside ‘Heimat’ a compilation of works from the last twenty years gives an insight into Eustachio’s wide-ranging oeuvre. It shows the artist’s ever-recurring content and formal themes – of landscape and nature, especially trees and even portraits.
