Daniela Trinkl. Magical remedy

In the exhibition, Daniela Trinkl poses the question of a cure for a better world. The longing for something good and beautiful, a healthy environment, makes her escape into another world. The material, polyurethane foam, attracts her because of its organic, living character.

Its appearance evokes a comforting feeling, like whipped cream or ice cream in pastel shades, like a vintage look of a bakery in a future version.

Her objects, to which she gives the name Props, represent beings or things of an unknown, perhaps more hopeful world. They reference masks, costumes, disguises and mystical objects respectively. Yet they remain uncanny, just like the material – a little too pretty and a little too delicious. Behind the masks, the double layer emerges, which thematises our world of beautiful appearances. The material is actually artificial and made of plastic, which does not save the earth but destroys it more and more.

This seeking for my home… was my affliction….Where is- my home? I ask and seek and have sought for it; I have not found it. – Friedrich Nietzsche
