Eugen Wist: "unwanted souvenir"
It is flat and called schiefer
It has a name and… gesture gesture… with my hand from the sidewalk
I can´t stop hating myself for the dried flowers on my wall
I made you this kit for overcoming the past
the orderly Altbauwohnung and circumstances
In sci-fi movies I fall for all the vases that have been left over in this world
My eyes burn
This is an urgent wish to make a book of all the poems about toxic nostalgia,
that hurt the make-great-agains.
Text: Julia Znoj
For „Pfeiler“ the Vienna/Frankfurt based artist Eugen Wist (*1989, Sheregesh, Russia) developed a site specific situation. The window glass is blurred by a greenish substance and leaves just a peephole for the viewer to see a wall object, – a book with a screen print, a postcard with an image of one of Van Goghs flower paintings and a found stone. All of the materials are bound together by a rope holding in place the layered composition.
