More about the artwork

The artist Kiki Kogelnik, who lived in Vienna and New York, called her work “space art” in reference to the “space age,” which fueled fantasies and utopias from the 1950s onwards. “Space Angel” shows the outline of a body embedded in shimmering surfaces, spray-painted and painted shapes, and outlines of hands. Screws, washers, and other found objects seem to anchor it as much as expand it. Kogelnik’s work bears witness to her preoccupation with the booming technological and consumer society in postwar Europe and the United States. At the same time, in the spirit of Pop Art, the artist
also experimented with garish colors, found objects, and synthetic fabrics, developing a new visual language that gave expression to the weightlessness and flattening of the human figure. In an era dominated by dreams and spectacle, Kogelnik explored the human body and the construction of the self with a humorous feminist eye.

The artist Kiki Kogelnik, who lived in Vienna and New York, called her works “space art,” in reference to the “space age,” which sparked fantasies and utopias from the 1950s onwards. “Space Angel” features a body outline embedded in shimmering surfaces, spray-painted and painted shapes, and outlines of hands. Screws, washers, and other found objects seem to anchor and expand it in equal measure. Kogelnik’s work thus bears witness not only to her preoccupation with the booming technological and consumer society of postwar Europe and the United States. The artist also experimented with garish colors, found objects, and synthetic fabrics, developing a new form of expression that gave voice to the weightlessness and flattening of the human figure. In an era dominated by dreams and spectacle, Kogelnik explored the human body and the construction of the self with great humor.
