Andreas Greiner and Armin Keplinger present GOLDEN GATES – their first solo exhibition as the artists duo A/A at Gallery KWADRAT.

About

For the exhibition they have focussed on progressive methods and technology, assembling them and thus instating them as gateways of the future. Nonetheless, the visual appearance eclipses its technical context and the beauty of the forward-looking science takes centre stage: floating water, fluid metal, a waterfall frozen into immobility and countless condensation trails visualise the aesthetics of progress. The works are seductive, but Greiner and Keplinger do not fail to uncover the ambivalence of technological innovation: Hiding behind the shiny facade of new materials and techniques, progress’ destructive power waits to be unleashed.

The path of progress is paved, the gateways to the future stand open, but what lies ahead cannot be known and is shrouded in darkness. Only nuances distinguish utopias from dystopias and surmise the question if all that glitters is really gold.
