Jacques Monory shows strange narrations in the form of images in his large-sized oil paintings. The visual experience creates a surprising effect. With the immediate sequence of his pictures, Jacques Monory confronts visitors with a mirror. The narrations show up in citations and fragments that we know from the world of consumption. Advertising is seduction and creates an artificial system of values in our society.

"These are paintings of shop windows, recollections of a night-time walk through the center of Vienna. These mutilated bodies, always wearing the same under-garments, fascinated me. To a certain extent they correspond to my vision of our society." Jacques Monory

Among other things, Galerie Hilger shows two new bronze sculptures - "Marsyas" and "Der Sterbende" by Alfred Hrdlicka - at viennAfair. Other artists shown are Hans Staudacher, Peter Krawagna, Franz Ringel and Nikolaus Moser.

Young art from Austria and the region of Central Europe, featuring paintings by Berenice Darrer, Oliver Dorfer, Ellen Semen, Sasa Makarova, Andreas Leikauf and Matthias Hammer, as well as Krassimir Terziev and Kalin Serapionov, who are Bulgarian media artists.

Brian McKees large-sized analog photographs from the series "Urbanus" and Anastasia Khoroshilova's portraits of "Bezhin Lug" connect to Julie Monaco's digital world of images in black and white.

Stand A0508 at the viennAfair, 21.-24. April, MessezentrumWienNeu, +43-664 34 04 728.
