Svenja Deininger

Svenja Deininger, Pendant

A pendant is a counterpart, a companion, it exists in English and in German (as a French word). Svenja Deininger calls her course “Pendant”. Her exhibition in the Secession in Vienna in 2017 was named “Echo of a Mirror Fragment”. Echo, mirror, pendant? Her paintings always enter into a dialog, a dialog with each other, when there are more than one, a dialog with the space and also a dialogue with the viewer.

 

I used to work as a curator at the Secession from 1987 till 1992, since then I almost saw every exhibition. We professionals often criticise, especially when we know something quite well. And the big exhibition hall of the Secession is a difficult space, especially for paintings … but this time, when I visited Svenja’s exhibition I was only fascinated and happy. I dived deep into the paintings. The whole exhibition was choreographed wonderfully, each single painting was a cosmos and together they were like a chorus, perhaps.

 

Anyhow, I’m extremely happy and thankful that Svenja will give this course next summer …

"For me, the International Summer Academy is a very special place. The intensive, creative and inspiring atmosphere in all our activities never ceases to fascinate me. Artists come to us – as teachers and students – from all over the world, taking advantage of this summer time-slot to concentrate exclusively on production, reflection and presentation, far removed from their everyday life. Disillusionment and re-enchantment, downfall and upswing – all this is possible; there emerge not only exceptional works of art, but also friendships and networks that often last a lifetime. The long-term project Global/Planetary Academy is at present my main objective. Its aim is to further establish the Summer Academy as a hotspot for global art, tackling relevant questions and strengthening worldwide connections. The project focuses on questions of how art can be learned and taught in the globalised world."
