„DIYALOG“: Art from Vienna


„DIYALOG“: Art from Vienna will showcase works by leading contemporary artists living in Vienna sponsored by OMV Group, the newly special project sponsor of Contemporary Istanbul. The selection is made by a pool of ten curators comprised of art experts from a variety of fields. Each of them has nominated one prominent artist from the older generation and one young artist with great potential. The exhibition prompts a dialog between the art and the viewer and opens up new perspectives on contemporary art in Austria’s capital. With the project OMV would like to contribute to cultural exchange in its core markets Austria and Turkey.

Guardians of Time by Manfred Kielnhofer Mystique contemporary art sculpture Guardians of Time by the Austrian Manfred Kielnhofer observing and pretending the world. “The Guardians of Time” relates to the idea that since the beginning of time mankind has had protectors, both for historic and mystical reasons. It seems that only man himself is a potential source of danger for his own existence. In his works of art Manfred Kielnhofer deals with the natural human desire for security. Thus his oeuvre reflects genuine exploration, consideration and discussion of current as well as historic moods and sensibilities of his social environment. His works of art captivate with elaborate combinations of light and different technique.
