Exhibition view Konzett Gallery 2016

Curated by Philipp Konzett (fine art) & Michael Mautner (music)
 
“Modern literature is a paraphrase of Dante’s ‘Commedia’” (J. L. Borges)
“Philosophy is a paraphrase of Plato” (M. Heidegger)
“Art is a paraphrase of nature” (Novalis)
 
If everything’s a paraphrase, what’s the topic?
 
Paraphrase is per definition the analogous description or interpretation of a state of affairs – an artistic dialogue that is located somewhere between transcription, variation, perception, and improvisation.
Almost every form of art is actually a paraphrase. As a rule, an artwork is not created without a basis on a model; it is situated within an artistic tradition. Paraphrase ties together a lasting actualization with the immanence of the original semiotic code.
