Painting has been declared dead many times before. One reason may be its traditional definition and the aesthetic conditions, which despite having determined its main characteristics for centuries nonetheless turned it into arts most popular genre. Its static shapes and flat stretcher frames are emblematic of boundaries, of stagnation. And although the principle has been continuously undermined or rendered obsolete, is especially the fixed position on the wall of great significance to date, as it categorically distinguishes painting from object or installation. Sculpture, on the other hand is traditionally presented on a pedestal. So what role do the base, the walls, the stretcher frames and the pedestal play? The group exhibition “If Walls Are Trembling” at Galerie Lisa Kandlhofer shows twelve artistic positions, manipulating the traditional relationship of art and its display in various media.
