The artists and architects for Group XLVII (October 2018 – March 2019) are Eva Engelbert, Philipp Timischl, and Jenni Tischer.
Vienna-based artist Eva Engelbert addresses the de- and recomposition of historical narratives and existing norms through scale, mutability and appropriation.
Previous to 2010 she studied at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the ENSBA Paris. Her work was recently shown as part of Wiener Festwochen, at Galerija SC, Zagreb, Studio Kalahan, Yogyakarta, Salzburger Kunstverein and Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna. In many cases, Engelbert has installed works outside of the gallery or museum, in a library, an observatory, a city forest, and in other semi-private and public spaces.
She teaches at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in the Sculpture and Space department.
Philipp Timischl lives and works in Vienna, Austria and Paris, France. His practice spans various media such as video, sculpture, painting and photography, often combined with text and culminating in site-specific installations. A reoccurring theme in his work is power dynamics – often in relation to social classes, queerness, heritage and the art world.
Since studying in Frankfurt, Städelschule and graduating from the Academy of fine Arts in Vienna, he recently had solo exhibitions at Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg; Emanuel Layr, Vienna; Vilma Gold, London; Neue Alte Brücke, Frankfurt; Künstlerhaus Graz. His work was shown in group exhibitions at Kunstwerke, Berlin; Luma Foundation, Zürich; Fondazione Sandretto re Rabaudengo, Turin; Kunsthalle, Vienna and Serpentine Gallery, London. In 2018 he will have a solo exhibition at Secession, Vienna.
