MUSEUM ACQUISITION | MUMOK

Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (Mumok) has acquired Nilbar Güreş's On Four Hands, 2019 to the permanent collection of the museum. On Four Hands stands out with its contemporary stage set-up that resembles a circus on the upper part, and it is attached to a quilt with the same tones and it is almost inside a garment by means of slippery satin material; it connects to the personal and private part. In this scene where the curtain is opening from the right, we see a luminous, black, main figure with the silhouette of a panther whose head is detached from his body and a small reflection of it trying to find its balance on a white block by holding it above in the air above. This is a tiny male body shooting at colourful balloons. The origins of the fabrics of the collage where bodies and materials are reflected in unexpected places; the top cotton part is worker uniform fabric used by staff in Central Europe, below is a sliced satin quilt, also known as Steppdecke in German. Sharing a story of no specific location with us, this fabric invites you to understand the emotions of the lives that have different dimensions in the same body by bringing together the most private and the most public in a collage.
