Anita Leisz, Hans Christian Lotz 

Freudenberger at Galerie der Stadt Schwaz

From April 15 to Juni 11, 2016

Space does not define itself by its extension or boundary alone. It is brought forth by the interaction between things and between things and human beings. With advancing digitization, the relationship between subject and object becomes more fluid, yet also more on a par. Things are no longer primarily experienced as inanimate and dependent on human activities but in their effects on their surroundings. The exhibition dedicated to Anita Leisz and Hans-Christian Lotz explores such mutual relationships and constellations, as well as the distances, differences, and shifts between forms, information, and performativity.

Hans-Christian Lotz’s installations juxtapose objects that at first sight seem to have only little to do with each other, which is why they cannot be linked by a narrative. His works rather disclose themselves at the interfaces of things, when different systems, such as organizational sciences and art, are related to each other.

Anita Leisz submits her materials to an intense processing. She hits the nail on the head without fixing it once and for all. Despite all poignancy and radicalness in terms of form, her sculptures and wall pieces retain their communicative potential and openness, which they can fall back on to change their identity and reposition themselves in each new arrangement.

Freudenberger is a self-organized exhibition space run intermittently and in different places. In the Galerie der Stadt Schwaz, Freudenberger presents the two artists Anita Leisz and Hans-Christian Lotz who respond to the situation in Schwaz with their recent works.
