Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, St. Gallen (July 26 – October 5, 2014)
Opening: Fri, 25 July 2014, 6 p.m.
Maria Anwander (*1980) from Vorarlberg knows how to kiss the walls of the most famous museums of the world so intensely that she not only leaves behind a work in the form of an illegal performance but, above all, questions the hierarchies in the art world. As a conceptual artist she dedicates the majority of her research towards so-called institutional critique whereby, besides art institutions and their roles, she is also interested in the whole art system, especially artists. Maria Anwander’s works are perplexing with their humour, precision and a certain mercilessness.
