Interview with artist Sarah Bogner

Who are you?

Sarah Bogner, painter and publisher.

How do you utilise the MQ Art Box?

I have created two canvas paintings measuring 2.3x6 metres, connected back-to-back in the glass space. It is two friezes, two panoramas, two painted sides.

What makes this art space special for you? How do you deal with the features of the exhibition space?

It is not easy to present paintings in a space without walls carrying the paintings and providing spatial definition. In the MQ Art Box, the paintings support themselves and each other, and they open up the space to the exterior. In this case, the MuseumsQuartier courtyard is the space, and what a terrific space it is.

How does your work interact with the art space MQ Art Box?

The paintings are at home in the art space, because they have been painted without any limits.

How was the art project ‘PARADE’ conceived?

Although, in a certain way, I paint horses, I am not a horse painter. Still, with the paintings Parade I and Parade II, I managed to bring the horses back to the royal stables, back to the MuseumsQuartier.

What is the meaning behind the depicted horses?

They are only paintings and relation.

What is important to you?

Love and embarrassment.
