Eduard Angeli retrospective at Albertina, ViennaApril 5th till June 25th, 2017
To this day, Eduard Angeli remains the youngest person to have been given a retrospective (1975) at Vienna's 20er Haus. And ever since then, this Viennese artist has been working consistently on one single theme: physical space and its emptiness. Angeli's intensely coloured and light-filled pastels of the 1970s and '80s are characterised by melancholy as a constant basic mood-as are the dark and gloomy paintings that he has produced since the late 1990s, working primarily in Venice. Such works bear mute witness to a world in decline, one in which loneliness and emptiness seem in equal measure threatening and utopian amidst a life full of distractions and noise.
