Calendar 2023 by Cäcilia Brown

The history of materials and their integration in the public space are an essential part of Cäcilia Brown’s works. She exposes the social conditions for the exploitation of these materials. The photos from the artist’s archive that were used for this calendar also speak of resources and materials. The immense importance of energy and steel for the economic cohesion of the world probably has only become apparent to many people in Europe over the course of 2022. Using collage, Cäcilia Brown associatively combines photographs into monthly images; the earliest date from 2010, and the latest from 2022.  The heavy industry, which relies on coal and gas to produce steel, left an imprint on landscapes and societies. The photo arrangements compiled by Cäcilia Brown illustrate this global issue. They show both history and the present and direct viewers’ gaze to what is oftentimes overlooked.

In memory of Hans-Peter Feldmann

The conceptual artist Hans-Peter Feldmann passed away in May 2023. His publication "Ein Engerieunternehmen" marked the beginning of the evn collection in the late 1990s. The compilation of photographs depicts a wide variety of company buildings at the turning point of the millennium and the region of Lower Austria in a unique way. The publication is now out of print. 
Many years later (2013), Hans-Peter Feldmann designed the greetings for the turn of the year (card and paper) for the company. Here, too, his unmistakable humor can be seen as a supporting character.

In memory of Phyllida Barlow

"STREET. Untitled: broken shelf" has been part of the evn collection since 2010. The work was created during one of the artist's residencies in Vienna. The photographs show the large sculpture in the stairwell of the EVN Directorate in 2013. Phyllida Barlow was one of the most important contemporary sculptors and a distinguished professor at the Slade School of Fine Arts. The artist (born 1944) passed away in London in March 2023.

small medium large. Exhibition at garage evn sammlung

small medium large presents selected sculptures and objects from the evn collection. The focus on three-dimensional works was chosen with respect to the specific exhibition venue. Designed in the late 1950s by a team of architects—Wilhelm Hubatsch, Franz Kiener, and Gustav Peichl—the workshop building served for decades as a repair shop and garage for the various motor vehicles of the EVN fleet. Cable reels used as pedestals are evocative of the company’s role as a public electricity supplier. Their circular cross sections are echoed by the domed skylights overhead. The exhibition layout by Markus Schinwald dynamically structures the large space and invites wandering about, which enables viewing the works from various different perspectives.
