»All things pass into the night« Q Lazzarus, Good Bye Horses

The magic of the past is given wings by the mysticism of the uncertain. Based on a small amount of secured information, we created fable worlds, and their elusiveness only heightens our longing for them. Céline Struger’s installation Good Bye Horses at MQ Art Box picks up this thought, contemporary fossils emerge, and the ambivalence between transience and eternity becomes tangible. It is a form of creative archeology, which explores the different aspects of art and science and articulates dualities. The bones are both originals and fakes. Is this a bird-like creature appearing in its natural pose, or are these the remains of a cultic site? Good Bye Horses is both a glance into the distant past as well as a window to the future, into a world marked by climate change and mass extinction.
Jan Gustav Fiedler, Vienna in May 2021

Céline Struger works with site-specific sculptures and installations. Her focus lies on renegotiating places; her key subjects are post-capitalism, ecology, pseudo-science and mythology. In her »floor stills« sculptures, she takes up the reduced design vocabulary of Modernism, juxtaposing it with opulent, semifigurative ceramic and mixed-media sculptures.
Céline has received scholarships from AIR Krems, the Québec Art Council and the Daegu Art Foundation. She has exhibited at MODEM Debrecen, Forum Stadtpark and Kunstraum Kreuzberg Bethanien.
The artist lives and works in Vienna.
