What lays bare in me
September 8 – October 14, 2017
Collectors Agenda, Vienna
In her architectural sculptures, Madeleine Boschan creates visible layers of historical, emotional, and spiritual aspects that characterize all manmade locations and spaces. Her works resemble portals of an archaic quality, like sites of a past culture or long-forgotten rites. Within their proximity they generate an energy that causes thoughts and even bodies to vibrate.

The show comprises a series of seven elegant and fragile sculptures, which use Boschan’s signature color palette. They suggest that architecture is more than the fundamental human need to create a roof over one’s head. Moreover, they raise social and ethical questions for the viewer such as ‚Where and how are encounters possible?‘
