SÓFIA KERESZTES – IN ETHYLENE ARMS
NAVE | 13th SEPTEMBER – 11th NOVEMBER 2023
The KÖNIG GALERIE is pleased to present Zsófia Keresztes‘ solo exhibition IN ETHYLENE ARMS in the Nave of St. Agnes. The exhibition is the artist’s first show with the gallery and marks the beginning of her representation with KÖNIG GALERIE. For IN ETHYLENE ARMS, Keresztes transforms the former nave of St. Agnes into a garden of earthly delights and suffering, where it is somehow both spring and autumn – apples bloom and rot, pain and joy are one and the same. We cannot be sure what is a beginning and what is an end. Which comes first, the apple blossom or the rotting of the fruit?
CHIHARU SHIOTA – THE WALL BEHIND THE WINDOWS
CHAPEL | 13th SEPTEMBER – 11th NOVEMBER 2023
For THE WALL BEHIND THE WINDOWS, Chiharu Shiota has turned the former Chapel at St. Agnes into one of her intricately threaded sculptures, on a scale that fills every inch of the exhibition space. Rather than entering the space perambulatorily, Shiota has devised a way for the interaction itself with her work to reflect the nature of the objects that feature most prominently within it: windows.

JOSE DÁVILA – ARTIST TALK
SATURDAY 16th SEPTEMBER 2023 | 3 PM
In a practice spanning nearly two decades, Jose Dávila has created an expressive body of work that explores the visual tropes and iconic symbols of art, architecture, and urban design. Initially trained as an architect and self-educated as a visual artist, Dávila creates sculptures, installations and photographic works that simultaneously emulate, critique, and pay homage to 20th-century avantgarde art and architecture, referencing artists and architects from Luis Barragán to Josef Albers and Donald Judd. Humor and melancholy co-mingle in works that often explore the tension between industrial and organic materials and the forces of compression and balance.
