Vienna Contemporary 2019

26 Sep 2019 – 29 Sep 2019


l’étrangere is pleased to announce its participation at the Vienna Contemporary with a solo presentation of Anita Witek.


Reset, initiated in 2016, is an ongoing series of works concerned with capturing a moment in time. It is about taking stock and re-setting one’s memory through using paper remnants accumulated over the years. This activation of her own archive re-sets Witek’s memory that enables the creative process. The artist arranges unstable, momentary, fleeting compositions that she then captures through an analogue camera.

Anita Witek created the installation Paravent specifically for the exhibition Welcome Home at Fotogalerie Wien in Austria. The installation’s structure, reminiscent of folding screens, is marked by various circular cut-outs, which may function as windows to the remaining exhibition space hidden behind the work.
