Leo Zogmayer :
Wenn Ich Kunst Sage Meine Ich das Ganze

Landesgalerie Niederösterreich, 2019


As part of FUNDAMENTAL (a project of the Landesgalerie Niederösterreich based on a concept by Rainer Prohaska), Leo Zogmayer, in addition to Judith Fegerl, engaged in an artistic intervention with the architecture and contents of the Landesgalerie Niederösterreich.

Already in 2017 Zogmayer created for the Landesgalerie Niederösterreich the sentence "WENN ICH KUNST SAGE MEINE ICH DAS GANZE", which was presented for the first tiem at viennacontemporary 2017 in Vienna together with the model of the Landesgalerie Niederösterreich. In the spring of 2019, the kit was mounted in gray uppercase on the concrete wall of the annex as part of the PREOPENING. Zogmayer´s works encourage reflection on the role of art, but it also raises the question of what significance art can have for every person personally, for a museum or for society. The artist himself about his work: "Art is not a refined cultural industry branch. Rather a kind of water drive. For nothing. For everything. Art speaks in the wind, does not pry around. Begins right where the measurability ends. Art is an infinite sphere, and outline is none. When I say art - I mean the whole thing."
