Kerstin von Gabain presents out-of-the-ordinary sculptural modifications of her own furniture in the solo exhibition NEW LOOK #3: KERSTIN VON GABAIN city of broken furniture at the MAK. The artist (* 1979 in Palo Alto, California; lives and works in Vienna) brings supposed internal injuries and
abnormalities into plain view on her objects outer surfaces. In a way that is playful and reminiscent of medical treatment,
she bandages chairs backs and legs; the overall atmosphere at her intervention in the MAK Gallery quite deliberately
recalls the aesthetics of a sanatorium. Von Gabain completes this impression with a series of photographs focusing on processes
of classification, archiving, and documentation.
