The following text is a short excerpt from LISA HOLZER‘s piece of writing that is accompanying her works (see above) presented in the group show Fieber at Galerie Emanuel Layr in Vienna.

(..) The pictures look rather naked. They feel right. The lentils and icing linger helplessly as thick spreads on neutral dirty-white backdrops. I still don’t know where they came from. And as I write they still don’t have titles. Maybe they are more like a weak noise band. Some remind me of shoulder-padded torsos. I’m glad that shoulder pads are back. Shoulder pads had to come back. Why fashion? Now? Wouldn’t questions concerning class be more appropriate? Less arrogant? Or is it arrogant to assume some things are arrogant? Am I ignorant? Who takes whom seriously? Who gets recognition? And for what? Am I comfortable? Is there enough empathy to soothe all nerve-frying insecurity? It is bad. These stairs descend. We participate. Artists are arrogant. I wear shoulder pads. Sometimes I feel dead and/or exhausted like fruitless, tropical bird shit to chew around on. Do I deliver? And who pays? All is more complicated. (…) – LISA HOLZER

Fieber with LISA HOLZER, LENA HENKE and MARGARET RASPE is running through November 5, 2016 at Galerie Emanuel Layr, Vienna.
