Pierre Bismuth – Kunsthalle Wien

NERO is pleased to announce the opening of the solo exhibition The Curator, the Lawyer and the Psychoanalyst by French artist Pierre Bismuth curated by Luca Lo Pinto. The show will open at 7pm on Tuesday 3 February at Kunthalle Wien in Austria.

Pierre Bismuth’s major solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien will bring together works by the artist from the years 1988 to 2014. The exhibition presents the artist’s complex oeuvre, which spans all media and approaches conceptual techniques in an experimental and humorous way. Besides smaller works on paper, it will also present objects as well as audio and video installations. A series of new works is being produced especially for this exhibition in close collaboration with the artist. Bismuth’s works seductively encourage one to question established social conventions and point to hidden aspects of our reality. In this process, Bismuth opposes the real world, which consists of regulated systems of signs, with another world in which uncertainty and the unknown are dominant.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication published by Sternberg Press featuring a catalogue raissoné and a booklet with texts by Dessislava Dimova, the curator, the lawyer, and the psychoanalyst.
