"Michel Majerus: A Monographic Exhibition"
2005-02-12 until 2005-05-16
Kunsthaus Graz
Graz, , AT Austria

Michel Majerus, who was born in 1966 and was killed in a plane crash in 2002, produced and left behind an extraordinary and exemplary oeuvre of contemporary painting in his short tenyear career. “The toilet is a beach toilet in Santa Monica and has already been silk-screen printed to 60 x 60 cm. Strange, as a print it looks oddly like Baldessari and no longer like Warhol; is it something to do with the air here? ...“ From michelmajerus@hotmail.com sent on 7th February 2001.

Michel Majerus primary theme included new images of electronic media and their effects on visual and popular forms of culture, extending to computer games and music. Though his pencil was replaced by the computer, his painting, mainly with brush and paint, remained in focus. Majerus thus demonstrated the effectiveness of this medium and his leading position in the field of visual arts. He was also especially successful at researching the spatial and architectural dimensions of images. The exhibition in the Graz Kunsthaus will do special justice to this aspect, since there will be an attempt to reconstruct all the spatial works and installations and to create a special architecture in Space01 of the Kunsthaus.
