From 1 July the Nitsch Museum in Mistelbach reopens to visitors with a brand new exhibition "Hermann Nitsch - New Works". On display will be some 80 large-format paintings realized between July 2019 and April 2020. These current works captivate with completely new, bright colour compositions, inspired by peonies and other spring flowers.
Michael Karrer, the artistic director of the museum, was pleasantly impressed: "Nitsch used the colours of the flowers and wanted to capture not only their colour palette, but rather the light of these flowers. Colour tones of light were created, which complemented the usual opulent colour substance."
The presentation in the chapel of the museum area is dedicated to the music of Hermann Nitsch. In cooperation with the Acoustics Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, symphonies by the artist are visualised with the help of a spectrogram. The individual tones and their frequencies are displayed graphically in the form of lines. The vertical axis shows the time response of the tones, the horizontal axis shows the corresponding frequency response.
