Love of Hearts

The heart, as an organ, is the seat of human life. In terms of invisible human feelings – when it’s about love and sincerity of expression – the heart is the most eloquent real symbol available to human beings.

In the visual arts, just as in traditional folk art, the heart is the indispensable form of expression for intimacy, psychological and spiritual experience, faith and identity. We shape it, we eat it, we banish it onto paper, we print it on textiles and incise it in wood.
    
The heart in our chest – pumping and beating, jumping for joy, gutted by grief and emotional distress – reflects a wide range of emotions. Expressed in pictorial and sculptural work, we re-encounter them in the exhibition in the form of ‘tangible witnesses’, embedded in another charged field of polarities, in which historical objects made by anonymous people are contrasted with the interpretations of contemporary artists from Austria.

In order to structure the abundance of material, four image contents on the theme of heart were defined in greater detail as core concepts of the exhibition: Symbol, Body, Love, Faith.
