Date and time

16/10/202123/12/2021

Agnieszka Polska and Samiees Two-Headed Horse is an exhibition about the subtleties of perfect perspective: moments that give us the ability to experience magical things in being and time. Plays of light and poetic forms that are visible only from a certain angle. Imagine the intention behind a carefully landscaped Persian garden; a blooming Chinese almond tree tenderly dropping its petals into a pond.

The transformation, however, is not only in what is observed: we, the observers, are taken on a journey that transforms both what we see and how we see. Thus we wander through the medieval treasure hunt of life: beings of darkness and light, surrounded by darkness and light, constantly bouncing off each other, in an endless dance of change.

The premise is simple: our artists are hiking together in the central European mountains, where they suddenly see and film a two-headed horse. Like chivalrous heroes on a treacherous quest for that very moment, the exhibition follows in their steps: where - and who - do you have to be to make this observation? Together we embark on an initiation: a journey along the insidious gulf between sense and nonsense, across the raging river of chaos into the knight's hall of the castle where, hanging from the wall on a dancing flag, we finally encounter the emblem of dignity.

Georg Kargl Fine Arts

Georg Kargl Fine Arts specializes in contemporary art. Since 2018, under Inés Lombardi’s guidance, the gallery mission incorporates ambitious exhibitions and artists projects, performances and talks, art fairs and biennials, institutional collaborations and public projects.

Founded by Georg Kargl in 1998, the gallery has focused on innovative emerging and established artists, both Austrian-based and international, who work across various media—supporting their visions and promoting vital dialogue with institutions, critics, curators and collectors.

With an exhibition space of more than 350 m2, Georg Kargl Fine Arts has the scope to produce exhibitions to match artists’ intentions and vision. Today the gallery has two additional locations: BOX, with a storefront designed by Richard Artschwager and PERMANENT, dedicated to experimental projects. Furthermore, since its inception Georg Kargl Fine Arts has provided a strong impact on revitalizing the neighborhood as well as on the Viennese art scene.
