KulturKontakt Austria, Vienna 2010
Tea Hatadi aus Kroatien, Heldi Pema aus Albanien und Ardan Özmenoglu aus der Türkei stellen von 09.06. bis 30.07.2010 in der Galerie ArtPoint aus. Zu sehen sind u.a. Installationen und Bilder zu Krieg, Aggression und Angst, aber auch Arbeiten zu Fragen von Herkunft und Identität. Die KünstlerInnen sind von April bis Ende Juni 2010 im Rahmen des KulturKontakt Austria Gastatelier-Programms für Bildende KünstlerInnen und FotografInnen in Wien.
As part of the “Artis in Residence” program, which was created back in 1992 for the purpose of exchanging experiences between young artists from Eastern and Southeastern Europe and their Austrian colleagues, the Vienna ArtPoint Gallery will host 14 artists this year as well. Since the launch of the program, more than 5,500 applications have been recorded, and 220 artists have had the opportunity to create in the city of Vienna over the past 18 years and then present their work to the Viennese audience.From June 9 to July 30 this year , the Viennese audience will be introduced to the exhibition trio consisting of Tea Hatadi from Croatia, Heldi Pema from Albania and Ardan Özmenoğlu from Turkey, whose works speak of war, aggression and fear.
Our artist Tea Hatadi shows a special interest in war in military museums from all over Europe and in her work questions the impact of war on art. As part of the exhibition at the ArtPoint Gallery, Tea will present a large, rose-decorated installation called “Fight and Faith”. The artist thus reminds us of the end of World War II, which took place exactly 65 years ago, but also of current war events around the world. Hatadi does not want to embellish anything, but points to the aggressive potential that lurks in all people. She wants to remind the audience of their own emotions and uses red for this purpose: a color that on the one hand symbolizes love, and on the other hand is associated with danger and death.
