We are pleased to announce Possessions, the first institutional solo exhibition by Evelyn Plaschg.

The powdery surfaces of Evelyn Plaschg’s works on paper oscillate between matte and brilliant, depending on light conditions, turning the works themselves into fragile ‘bodies’ that rub off when touched – through display, storage, and presentation; an incipient dissolution of the work. Starting from photographs, Plaschg translates the captured bodies into drawings, which are then in turn drawn up with pigments. The title of the exhibition at Kunstverein Nürnberg – Possessions – refers to material possession, its surface, as well as being possessed – the internalized object. Plaschg’s works show the permeability of a supposedly defined subject and its environment, that allows the vulnerability of its outward-facing surface to shine through.

Evelyn Plaschg (*1988 in Gnas, Styria, lives and works in Vienna) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and at the École nationale supérieur des Beaux Arts de Paris. Most recently her work has been shown at Belvedere 21 and at Pina in Vienna.

With generous support by the Marianne und Hans Friedrich Defet Foundation.
