Adriana Czernin, Untitled, 2017 Courtesy Galerie Martin Janda, Wien



Wed, 18.04.2018–Sun, 30.09.2018
Adriana Czernin explores the structure of ornament. In 2014 the MAK invited the artist to find inspiration for a work of art in the rosette of the minbar from the Mosque of Ibn Tulun in Cairo, whose fragments are housed in the MAK. In this exhibition, the resulting works produced over the last few years are united with the 13th-century original in a room installation.

Adriana Czernin: A Part of the Whole—Fragment
We will take a look at the exhibition of artist Adriana Czernin. She works with ornaments and patterns. MINI MAK will show you how something completely new can originate from a “fragment.” Further, we ask ourselves the question: when is an artwork really finished?
