Barbara Breitenfellner’s artistic practice bears witness to the fact that we live in a culture of ubiquitous imagery. The artist’s uncanny installations and collages derive from the observation that ‘(oneiric) images give rise to reality – a reality full of holes, corners and recesses’ (Jens Emil Sennewald). Over the past few years Breitenfellner has been collecting a series of dreams about art, which she put down in writing. For her first solo exhibition in a public gallery in Germany, she selected two dreams, which will be implemented as large-scale installations. In the first of the two dreams, ’1 museum floor covered with 1 zigzag carpet (and) a big limousine’ are said to play an important role, while the second dream was recorded as follows: ‘For days on end, Beuys made a performance in 1 space. Someone else (?) climbed on 1 lying gorilla with 1 fur on a platform—a rack that was moving upwards. In the end Beuys jumped from the rack like a winner in a circus.’

BARBARA BREITENFELLNER, born 1969 in Austria. Master of Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art (Prof. Douglas Gordon). Recent exhibitions in Paris, Wien and Berlin. Lives and works in Berlin.
