The gallery artepari was founded in November 2007 in Graz. In addition to the production and presentation of limited editions and multiples of Austrian and international art, the work of artepari focuses on the positioning and mediation of contemporary artists. The gallery focuses its work not only on a continuous exhibition activity with four to six solo or curated thematic exhibitions annually, the presentation of its artists is also presented in the form of temporary exhibition projects and at art fairs.
The gallery premises are located on the 2nd floor as well as in the inner courtyard at Peter-Tunner-Gasse 60 in Graz and also offer space for installations and conceptual works.
Anna-Maria Bogner. NEAR DISTANCE
How distant can closeness feel, and how close distance? Are social and physical distance directly related to each other? Or is the interpersonal space that separates and connects us an independent value?
Anna-Maria Bogner’s work constantly revolves around questions of space and its perception. The COVID-19 pandemic and the need for physical distancing is changing everyday structures and hence our societies on a global scale. The artist translates her observations on this into works characterised by minimalism and reduction. With her customary sparing yet precise use of the medium, Bogner expands the architectural dimensions of the gallery space and atrium at artepari, making us oscillate between a vastness perceived as infinite and total spacelessness.
