Voluptuous U-turns on the street of style, beauty and greed

Book presentation and artist talk with Kerstin Cmelka, Manuel Gorkiewicz & special guests

“Gorkiewicz’s work carves out a number of additional problems through the easy means and strategies of the glamorous, using stylistic exaggerations and delicate irony, exposing the theatrical  and androgynous potentiality of every environment, and casually enacting the triumph of surface effects over artificiality and meaning. In doing so, the artist not only touches upon the central problems of painting today, he also reveals the degree to which they are already present, aligned with our own problems.” (Christian Egger)

Designed as an artists’ book, the publication documents Manuel Gorkiewicz’s artistic work of the last six years as well as his exhibitions in Austria and abroad.
