Cutting and shredding paper and other media, Austrian contemporary artist Monika Fioreschy reconstitutes these materials as large-scale collages, reassembling them strip-by-strip so that the end result is something completely new. While the strict regularity of the collages seduces viewers to a line-by-line reading, Fioreschy confounds any conventional interpretation by introducing frequent interruptions in the form of folds, gaps, overpasted paper, and changes of color. Encouraged to more closely examine the work, the viewer finds an unexpected wealth of details emerging.
            In Monika Fioreschy: Strip-Cut-Collage, artist and art historian Bazon Brock follows Fioreschy’s unconventional artistic process, showing how her training in classic weaving in the Gobelin style is rediscovered in this new series, as well as in her broader body of artistic work. Brock’s contribution is accompanied by more than one hundred full-page reproductions of works from the series.
