Philipp Timischl & Sarah Ortmeyer
MEDITATION UNITED // 2 - 17 April
Private View: 2nd April, 6-9PM
Sarah Ortmeyer is showing an environment made from a series of life-size portraits. Drawing from the universal appeal of David Beckham Panini Stickers, the series meditates the archaic fields of collecting, portraiture, and repetition.
Philipp Timischl is showing printed fabric banners taken from his latest exhibition at Künstlerhaus Graz. The banners, which are normally suspended from the ceiling, now create a series that deals with privacy, intimacy and repetition.
Arranged for the occasion of MEDITATION UNITED, the pieces in the exhibition no longer function as autonomous objects:
Why Should I Bother?
What Meditation Isn't
What Meditation Is
The Practice What To Do With Your Mind
Structuring Your Meditation,
Dealing With Problems
Dealing With Distractions, I
Dealing with Distractions, II
