The abstract artist Andrea Winkler, born in Zurich in 1970, inverts the gallery space, creates spatial scenarios made up of multipart installations that alter markedly depending upon one’s respective viewing position. In a combination of sculptural elements using coloured paper, graffiti and barriers that mark out the path through her scenarios, she not only plays upon moments of vacancy and the vague, but also takes the viewer up really close or pans out to provide a distanced overview. Winkler’s installations are logically consistent, but actually don’t quote any precursors as the title would suggest, but draw one in as though in a mixture of improvised ease and aesthetically strict stylisation. Normally the preserve of celebrities, this glamour inhabits her art whenever she produces spatial scenarios in a seemingly intricately composed dramaturgy.
