Editorial

This artist takes photos of his mother in pin-up poses and even presents
himself to the camera in spicy positions. And yet it would be a mistake to
toss LEIGH LEDARE solely into the “grubby-art corner” since he is much
too conscientious in questioning the artist’s claim to authority, as even the cover of this issue shows significantly.
    A preoccupation with “the gaze”, whether at the media or one’s family—is characteristic of all of the works presented on the Artist Pages of the present issue. For example, KRISZTINA FAZEKAS-KIELBASSA has a totally different way of viewing her female parent than Ledare: in Mater Matters, the multi-media work chosen as the winning project at the Fourth International Portfolio Review in Vienna, she takes the tortures she suffered in her childhood as her theme.
    Under the influence of the body cult of her home country, Brazil, ROBERTA LIMA focuses in turn on her own (bodily) self, which she formally treated harshly in the course of performances. Today, relics from past interventions take the place of the artist’s actual person, as the new exhibition in EIKON SchAUfenster shows.
    The G.R.A.M. group of artists has a critical view of the media, even though in many works this is not immediately obvious because of their surface sense of humor. This also applies to their series Reenactments, which was started in the nineties and is based on photos found in magazines and the Internet.
    The multi-perspective approach is also central to the work of both
ABIGAIL REYNOLDS and WALTER NIEDERMAYR. While the former
uses historical photos from which she makes collages with a space-time
structure, the multipartite landscape photos of the Southern Tyrolese artist are combined so discreetly that shifts in space are barely perceptible.
    Finally, as the editorial team we find it appropriate to turn our gaze
onto our own activities and to test them yet again. And since an intensive
analysis demands a certain amount of time, on this occasion the next issue of the magazine will not appear until spring 2014. But to make sure that the wait will seem as short as possible, we recommend the accompanying EIKON Special Print #16 as good reading in the meanwhile.

So let yourself be surprised!
