Rebecca Warren: The Now Voyager at Belvedere 21, Vienna

1 min read

Rebecca Warren’s solo exhibition The Now Voyager at Belvedere 21, Vienna, curated by Axel Köhne, consists of nine new, large hand-painted bronze sculptures on variously coloured plinths, and a number of new neon collages shown on walls designed by the artist. Many of these sculptures (which in their variety Warren likens to the cast of aliens in the bar scene in Star Wars) are broadly figurative, and some are additionally top-heavy, leaning, working against gravity, straining against their own bulk and weight. The collages, made of neon, household paint, wool and other elements are presences of a different order: they suggest a strange system of communications manifested as glyphs, oddly familiar peripheral glimpses and distant, nocturnal vistas.

Adapted from Walt Whitman’s poem The Untold Want, the exhibition title emphasises the nuance of voyaging in nowness, in live, immediate mental and artistic presence.
