Hubert Scheibl – Seeds of Time

From 16 July 2021

The ALBERTINA Museum invites the public to encounter the internationally renowned Austrian artist Hubert Scheibl in a way that is truly exceptional—for this exhibition features the artist himself as curator. Scheibl has set out to show a personal selection of his own works in combination with artworks from the ALBERTINA Museum’s holdings. The subtle juxtaposition of these two work groups fuels the development of intense dialogs that refer simultaneously to the artist’s own inner dialog with his art and to his interactions with those on the outside.

The criteria brought to bear here are diverse, with the artist being guided in his decision-making process by formal, substantive, and associative aspects. Scheibl’s paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures, and artist’s books from various creative periods suggest a number of broad thematic areas. Themes such as evolution and nature, the “constant oscillation between there and here” (Hubert Scheibl), and the penetration of both spatial and temporal axes serve as starting points for Scheibl’s overall approach. The overall presentation consists of three chapters that react to the sharply contrasting architectures of their three exhibition spaces in the Columned Hall.

The exhibition is on view from 16 July until 17 October 2021.
