20:00h Michele Di Menna

Michele Di Menna turns the plain rooms of the gallery in Schwaz into warm spaces by using long burgundy curtains. Besides, she exhibits a series of etchings that are based on illustrations found alongside daily horoscopes. These illustrations interweave various source images forming new images that are open to all projections.

As „special guests“ for her exhibition, Di Menna has borrowed pieces from her international artist colleagues (Marie Angeletti, Nicola Brunnhuber, Stephan Dillemuth, FASTWÜRMS, Tiziana La Melia, Beatrice Marchi, Marlie Mul, Lucie Stahl). For the artist, their contributions form a kind of curated sub-exhibition, which corresponds to her own artistic approach.
