oellinger / rainer

Born in Korneuburg, Hannah Rosa Oellinger and Manfred Rainer currently live and work in Vienna. They position themselves within a critical but at the same time creative framework on what concerns contemporary social and artistic practices.

Their exhibition viel zu tun, April 13 – May 21, Kunstverein das weisse haus focuses on the idea of the individual “business”, being busy as today’s way of life. The works exhibited here are telling a very personal and yet recurrent story – our daily to-do list, the necessity of control as the main tendency of today’s individualism. The 45 signs aim to be clear, honest, and go straight to the point. Why don’t we talk about our own failures? Why are we not sharing “unsuccessfulness”? Negative responses and failed attempts are a large part of human outcomes, so why negate them?
