Sabrina Horak Solo Exhibition "One perfect Moment"

>>> matchbaco.net/pressrelease

March 4 (Fri) - 31 (Thu), 2016


Closed on Mondays & Tuesdays

Vernissage: March 5 (Sat), 18:00-21:00

matchbaco is pleased to present “One perfect moment”, a solo exhibition by Sabrina Horak, to be held from March 4 - 31, 2016.

Sabrina Horak, who grew up between Japan and Austria, creates mandala-like, partially three dimensional compositions through which she explores the relationship between the man-made “utopias” that arise from urban life, and the people who live within these artificial constructs.

Human arms, legs and other body parts, painstakingly carved from sheets of wood, intertwine and repeat to form new patterns and shapes; painted with luminescent coloration, these human forms seem like viscera or organs floating in the air.

Through Horak’s seamless visual language, the viewer is made aware of the connection between our own physical organs and the essential duality of utopia and dystopia, long a source of artistic inspiration. Her works provoke introspection into the universal wishes and dreams of modern humanity throughout the world.

This exhibition, “One perfect moment”, is Horak’s second solo show at matchbaco following her debut at the gallery in November 2014, and comprises new works which emphasize three- dimensional structure and shadows.

Im originellen Crossover verschiedener künstlerischer Medien und Kulturen verbindet Sabrina Horak, geb. 1983 formale Elemente aus Malerei, Skulptur, Installation und Fotografie. Für die Österreicherin mit einem japanischen Elternteil, die in Tokyo Kunst studierte, ist der transkulturelle Austausch ein genuines Anliegen. Menschenmengen unterschiedlicher Nationalität sind das Thema ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit, wie sie als Ergebnis der Globalisierung in den belebten Geschäftsstraßen  Japans ebenso auftreten wie in Europa und in den USA.  Ihr Interesse als Fotografin gilt der anonymen Masse der Passanten in den Einkaufs- und Vergnügungsvierteln. Aus den Fotografien wählt sie einzelne Personen oder Figurengruppen aus und stellt ein dreidimensionales Abbild her. Durch diesen Vorgang gerät wie beim Zoom die einzelne Figur und ihr Schicksal ins Visier und wird als Individuum in ihrer Singularität hervorgehoben. Während die Künstlerin in früheren Arbeiten die Figuren und Menschengruppen einzeln aus einer Holzplatte sägte, verwendet sie jetzt ein computerisiertes Herstellungsverfahren, bei dem die vektorisierte Umrisszeichnung wie bei einem klassischen Schneideplotter für die Programmierung eines Wasserstrahlschneidesystems auf einer Aluminiumplatte verwendet wird. Ihre ersten Vorarbeiten zu den Crowds entstanden während ihrer Auslandsemester in Japan, als sie die Menschenmassen an den Plätzen rund um den riesigen Bahnhof in Shinjuku oder in Shibuya fotografierte. Bald war sie in ihrer neuen Umgebung erfolgreich, indem sie bereits 2007 ihre erste Einzelausstellung Strange Days in Yokohama einrichtete. Sabrina Horak war an internationalen Kunstmessen und Museumsausstellungen in Österreich beteiligt. 2008 präsentierte die Galerie Suppan Contemporary ihre erste Einzelausstellung Crowds refigured in Österreich.
