Die Ausstellung „Blend Together“ von Janine Schranz und Daniela Zeilinger, die im Rahmen der diesjährigen Foto Wien bei Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory präsentiert wird, schließt thematisch an die gemeinsame Ausstellung „Passepartout“, die 2021 im hoast in Wien zu sehen war, an. Galt die Aufmerksamkeit im letzten Jahr Prozessen des Auswählens, Croppens und Ausblendens, stehen diesmal Situationen der Transparenz und der Überblendung im Zentrum. Ging es im hoast um Techniken der Inklusion und Exklusion innerhalb einer gegebenen Architektur bzw. innerhalb des Bildfeldes, so wird die Ausstellungssituation bei Mz* Baltazar‘s auf Möglichkeiten der Kommunikation zwischen Innen und Außen, von Kunstwerk zu Kunstwerk, sowie zwischen Realraum und Bildraum befragt.
The exhibition “Blend Together” by Janine Schranz and Daniela Zeilinger is presented at Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory and part of this year’s Foto Wien. It thematically continues a joint exhibition called “Passepartout,” which has been on display at hoast in Vienna 2021. While last year’s show focused on processes of selecting, cropping and fading out, the emphasis now is on situations of transparency and blending. While at hoast the focus was on techniques of inclusion and exclusion within a given architecture or within the image field, the exhibition at Mz* Baltazar’s Lab will examine possibilities of communication between inside and outside, from artwork to artwork, and between real space and image space.
About Janine Schranz & Daniela Zeilinger
Janine Schranz (*1985, Switzerland) is a visual artist and photographer currently living in Vienna (AT). In her practice she explores the (pre-)conditions of photography, its components and interrelations with architecture. Labor conditions, recording processes and the exhibition context play equal roles as working materials. In its essence, she understands photography as a time-based medium and puts bodily-spatial experiences in relation to visual perception and questions forms of (un-)documentation. She studied photography (Zurich University of the Arts, Switzerland) and transdisciplinary arts (University of Applied Arts, Vienna).
Daniela Zeilinger (*Linz/Austria) lives and works in Vienna. She studied fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna as well as dance, context, choreography at the UDK Berlin and free art at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee. The artist works at the interface of different disciplines, especially painting and photography. An ontological reflection upon the space of photographic images is a central motif. Her works, as analogue photographs, are created in a multi-layered process of transformation and translation. They oscillate between image and imagination, and photography and painting. Zeilinger’s works have been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and abroad. In 2020, the artist received the State Scholarship for Artistic Photography.
