Frenzi Rigling is an explorer – and a discovery in her own right! She distills unique poetry from everyday life. In her artistic practice, the Swiss-born artist, who has lived for many years in Lower Austria and Vienna, devotes herself to everyday items and found objects. It is largely motifs and objects from her own environment that she collects, stages, distorts, and arranges to create multifaceted art objects and installations.

About that

Rigling’s exhibition “About that” deliberately plays with openness and indefiniteness. On a closer look, her work on canvas “In Blau“ is a delicate drawing with seams of white yarn. Using fabric remnants, she imagines ephemeral gardens and creates botanical plant names from silicone. The artist makes visible what often remains hidden. In her images that feature writing and text, she detects the essential between the lines and letters. Her alphabet gives a voice to those who have none.

Feminist approach

The artist often uses materials with a female connotation as her focal point: cyclical and routine tasks in the home and garden or textiles such as clothing items, fabric remnants, or pelts. Her works reflect the cycles of our existence and the fragility of our day-to-day lives. But in the tradition of feminist practice, they also address sociopolitical issues.

With her works, Frenzi Rigling counters the cycle of disappearance with an aesthetic of preservation. In the colorful farandole of contemporary art, her polyphonic works stand alone.
