What remains – since its founding in 2009 what remains gallery has revolved around this question. Instead of producing something new, the focus of its artistic practice lies in the investigation of that which already exists.

What remains then of an artistic work and its associated idea after it has been exhibited? what remains gallery traces this moment in order to discover a new beginning in the artistic legacy through devoting attention to the original materials, which are discarded by the contemporary art system – being substitutable, temporary and reproducible. Through both intellectual and physical investigations, what remains gallery simultaneously approaches the forgotten and the excluded, the existent and the existing.

what remains gallery is less the idea of a gallery than a space for transformations; a fictitious institution, through which it becomes possible to trace the issue of defining art, and a well constructed tool for excavating and questioning institutionalized values and works.

Through what remains gallery‘s intervention on the system of the art world; the refusal to abandon the materials of artistic works and processes, the view of the conditions of the system is altered, destabilized, and thus begins a quest for the actual potential of artistic practice, in order, once again, to unify the different elements, ranging from the initial idea, to the production, through to reception.

what remains gallery performs an analysis of the pre-condition of art production and its display, without dissociating itself completely from the institutionalizing processes, nor being captured within them.

 

 

 

what remains gallery 2009 – 2014 

Was bleibt übrig von einer künstlerischen Arbeit und deren Idee nach einer Ausstellung? Diesem Ende spürt what remains gallery nach, um im künstlerischen Nachlass einen erneuten Beginn zu entdecken, und so Originalmaterialien, die im zeitgenössischen Kunstbetrieb abfallen, erneute Aufmerksamkeit zu widmen.

Bei icon-Verlag erschien im Juni 2014 eine zweisprachige Publikation, die einen Blick auf die letzten fünf Jahre what remains gallery wirft.
