Salon 1# presents the young Austrian artist and pharmacist Denise Schellmann. With her background in science, Denise Schellmann sees the human body in the form of many coloured cells and empty spaces in-between, which would otherwise only be visible with a microscope. Her working process unfolds in a space between art and science from which she constantly draws new impetus for her compositions. The emphasis is on the intuitive drawing process, which as such requires extensive knowledge of the matter, even to the level of unconscious, automated actions.

Her pencil and coloured pencil drawings initially impress with their seemingly harmonious colour composition, but in search of organic abstraction, all contradictions and inconsistencies are synthesised into a colourfully balanced and melodious tune on the invisible and difficult-to-access interfaces. Striking polarisation is a recurring theme in her work.

Things the artist has learned, seen and experienced intuitively become part of her drawing process, thus creating new possibilities of interpretation in the viewer's mind. Elementary human and existential questions are interwoven in the structure of the drawing. Similar to yin-yang, two diametrically opposed principles co-exist in her imagery, which relate to and complement each other in a certain way: matter and space, art and science, image and word or creativity and structuredness, to name but a few.

In her manifesto "The Arscientic Andism", Schellmann calls these intermediate spaces "Andism". In her new artworks, butterfly-like forms stand for reflection on one's own life and personal growth in uncertain circumstances. Comparable to the metamorphosis of a butterfly and its transformation from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly, this process reflects characteristics such as fragility, strength and independence.

SALON REAL / VIRTUAL relaunch of a new gallery concept: real vs virtual
The focus is on a new perception of the exhibition space and the artwork displayed, interlocking of the real and virtual worlds and their combination of acoustic, visual and haptic stimuli. The goal is to dock the real world more strongly and actively at the interface to the virtual world in order to set new approaches and work processes in motion and in this way to further develop interactive media art, and to have a stronger interdisciplinary approach to contemporary art, both in theory and in production
