A Flower in My Mouth

A maze is a bar is a flower is a word is a silence is a gesture is a distraction is a name is a mirror is a scream is an erotic pain is a flattering sadness is an erasure is blood is gambling is revenge is a wedding is a funeral.

The Salzburger Kunstverein is pleased to present A Flower in My Mouth, a project by Mehraneh Atashi, Sara Giannini and Jacopo Miliani. Entangling both curatorial and artistic practice together, the exhibition A Flower in My Mouth presents speculations on the semiotics of flowers in relation to sexuality, esoterism and political power.

Themselves being sex organs of the natural world, flowers have been used since ancient times to speak about the unspeakable; to seduce, adorn, and distract. Seemingly only ornamental, flowers can convey covert meanings, masking that which cannot be openly shown or spoken about.

Borjana Ventzislavova

In Borjana Ventzislavova’s film, And the Sky Clears Up (MAGIC RESISTANCE), five female protagonists perform magic spells in Vienna, mostly in sites renowned for events from the Nazi period. By documenting these different processes (and perhaps thus magnifying them), the film altogether acts as a plea for conjuring resistance to the current right-wing populism in the Western Hemisphere.

Per Dybvig

The drawings of Norwegian artist Per Dybvig depict the everyday; often snippets from quieter, quotidian moments. The artist has been invited to spend some time in Salzburg to draw the city and its inhabitants. Himself an unimposing type, he has done his rounds in the cafés, bars and the streets of Salzburg. Like an observer and story-teller of times past, Per is often sitting in a corner, half-invisible, sketching. With discretion and an empathetic eye, he illustrates the people and scenarios before him, revealing a tender humanity on the one hand, and offering an offbeat antidote to the faster-paced mechanisms of our time.
