MY COUNTRY, MY BLOOD

My body in the landscape, landsape in my body


work in progress



In this solo exhibition, the artist Robert Gabris shows an archive of his memories of Slovakia, his homeland. The look of his "viewing" is directed from the outside, since he moved to Vienna many years ago, where he works and lives. The artist shows a mental "memory landscape", abstracted and afflicted with emotions and de-constructed perceptions.


His drawing work illustrates the complexity and deficits of his relationships with people and places of his past. The need for physicality and immaterial feelings is being autopsied. The drawer uses his studies of corpses from the anatomical institute in Vienna as a reference for his drawn maps reminiscent of pieces of raw meat, muscle and human tissue.
