Viviana Abelson

VIVIANA ABELSON was a master student with professor Douglas Gordon at Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. In her work she uses massive, heavy, rough and sturdy materials, which are difficult to handle. Her powerful sculptures and objects are not aiming at aestheticism, but nevertheless have a subtle beauty. She plays with the appearance of surface structures, sometimes seemingly destroying the materials she uses. Through burning, stretching, cutting and reassembling readymade objects she creates an air of bewilderment and familiarity in her work. The energy she inflicts on the pieces during the process of construction seams to surround the presence of the works like an aura. Her work was shown in solo and group exhibitions at Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden; Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt am Main; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Benaki Museum, Athens; LOOP Top 10, Barcelona.
