FAYE WEI WEI | Moon

12 March - 17 April 2021

Faye Wei Wei's exhibition Moon at Galerie Kandlhofer explores a nocturnal world of mythical and romantic figures composed with the artist's distinctively fluid approach to iconography and classical myth, love rituals and the theatricality of gender and relationships. Within her practice, the works sometimes suggest the themes of particular mythic narratives, and at other moments seem to depart into a more ambiguous, interior space of incongruity and uncertainty. With a palette of earthy greens, reds, pale pinks and blues, Wei Wei's quixotic paintings are inhabited by magical, folkloric images of knights, horses, florals and dreamy heart-faced figures allowing the viewer to feel like you're getting lost in the artist's imagination.
