Wolfgang Ellenrieder's installation »Kiosk des Glücks« [kiosk of happiness] can be described as an encompassing layout of the exhibition space. He combines different surfaces that do not reveal what they truly are at first glance, relief prints, that simulate high quality materials, wood cuts, that were realized based on on-site elements of the building, and three-dimensional »colour objects«, that refer to architectural elements and ficticiously extend the space. The »Kiosk des Glücks« is a place that examines the relation between painting and space, original and reproduction. Its surfaces serve as projection screens for wishes and questions concerning real and apparent values.
Wolfgang Ellenrieder has just received the Villa Massimo scholarship in Rome for 2018/19.
We are very pleased with the artist and congratulate him warmly. It is the highest German award given to artists by the Commissioner of the Federal Government for Culture and the Media.
