"Love and Blame": Exhibition by Sarah Bogner at KiS - Kunst in Seefeld (Art in Seefeld)
There are fabulous creatures in a pink world cavorting on the canvases. Cheerful horses that seem to dance through the picture with snake-like mischievous creatures in a sensual choreography. For Sarah Bogner, the artist who is creating the latest show at KiS - Kunst in Seefeld, these creatures radiate optimism: "I leave the interpretation to the viewers. For me, however, my paintings have a lot to do with joy and approachability." In her paintings, Sarah Bogner shows beings in relationships, in relations. The title of the show, "Love and Disgrace", which incidentally comes from one of Bogner's poems, also refers to this.
"In all relationships, especially in love, one exposes oneself to risk. Art, too, is an exposure. If you show yourself, you also risk embarrassment," says the artist, who was born in Munich in 1980 and lives and works in Vienna. For the exhibition hall Alte Feuerwehrhalle in Seefeld, which has functioned as an art space since 2021, Sarah Bogner created works that adapt to the dimensions but also the atmosphere of the space. "Liebe und Blamage - Love and Blame" is already the fourth exhibition at KiS, the Seefeld art meeting place initiated by Rafael Jablonka and featuring works from his collection.
In 2022, an association for the promotion of contemporary art in Seefeld was founded with Elisabeth Gürtler from the Alpin Resort Sacher Seefeld as chairwoman. The KiS association has set itself the goal of presenting contemporary art of all genres to a broad public. Thus, in addition to the twice-yearly changing exhibitions with works from the Jablonka Collection, there are concerts, special guided tours or meetings of art enthusiasts. Children and young people in particular should come into contact with the art of our time at this unusual venue. Membership of the association is open to all - more information can be requested at email@example.com.
