    Exhibition Franz Cserni: The vision of someone else's days

  • "What are days for? Are they my days or are they someone else's?" The painter Franz Cserni has been tackling these questions since November of last year. Unlike his previous artistic strategy, which consisted of allowing pictures to mature in memory, the artist has now produced a series of large-sized paintings which can be perceived by the viewer as a sort of diary.

  • Cserni uses this to record his spontaneous, intuitive way of experiencing the colours of the hour, the taste of the minute and the scent of the second. His rich experiences create the vision of someone else's days. The exhibition takes place from 12 May – 17 June at Gerberhaus Fehring.
