Opening: Wednesday 23rd, 2010, 6 - 9 pm, the exhibition runs until August 30th, 2010.

The exhibition “The obscure objects of my desire” offers a surprising insight and appears strangely personal. A balanced mixture of different artistic varieties animates the delight of viewing, paired with the requirement of an expert judgment. This intimate connection of emotion and theory stimulates the power of reasoning. A collective pleasure that draws upon all the senses. Works from the repertoire of Hilger contemporary (Asgar/Gabriel, Oliver Dorfer, Vasilena, Gankovska, Ai Kijima, Brian McKee, Sara Rahbar) and Hilger modern (Mel Ramos, Andy Warhol) integrate with the coeval positions from Tony Cragg, Javier Arce, Larissa Sansour, Tom Sachs, Vladimir Skrepl and Erwin Wurm. The works meet each one another at the interface of painting, photography, sculpture and textile works. The goal is to make the concealed recognisable in the visible to reveal the obscurity of desire. The aesthetic experience and stimulation is to be perceived as a secondary effect.
