Traurig - Heiter
25 November 2022 – 31 January 2023
Traurig heiter, 2 Wolken (sad - serene, 2 Clouds), a painting by Bruno Goller (1901 - 1998), is the title of this exhibition. Two poles in life, which the artist captures and in his own poetic way on the canvas. When art succeeds in creating counter-worlds, it can be a salvation for the creator of the works as well as for the viewers. Goller was such an artist.
Crises and their realities can be crushing and the balance in life seems to be lost. Beauty, suffering, silence and melancholy, fantasy, humour and the absurd meet and merge like metaphors in this exhibition.
