The exhibition deals with (raw) materials, their origin, the social environment in which they are won, but also their sensuous components.

About

Johanna goes after the materials of the painting, Helmut, who likes to cook and eat, the edible - there are many overlaps in the use of the material (gum arabic, linseed oil, dammar, mastic, hormoz red or cochineal louse). The search for their origins led the artists to Sumatra, Palawan, Chios, Sudan, Hormoz, Lanzarote, Waldviertel and the Pre-Alps. Johanna Kandl's tempera paintings and paperwork, Helmut Kandl's photographic work and the mostly produced videos chant between a factual didactic character and a narrative depiction of the sensuality of materials, myths and legends.
