Description:
Arnulf Rainer * (born at Baden near Vienna in 1929) Zentralgestaltung (Central Formation), signed, dated TRR 51, mixed media with oil on grey painted cardboard, 60 x 92 cm, framed Provenance: Private Collection, Vienna 1951 The first (and only) exhibition of the “Hundsgruppe” (lit. dog pack) was held in March at the premises of the Wiener Gesellschaft für Wissenschaft und Kunst. Despite the presence of Mikl and Hollegha’’’’’’’’s abstract works, the surrealist and phantasmagorica l works dominated-Rainer himself had not yet completely disengaged himself from surrealism. The opening was marked by a true artistic scandal: disappointed by Ernst Fuchs’’’’’’’’ opening speech, Rainer, at the time calling himself “TRRR” (which was intended to sound like the growling of a dog (like the English ‘grrrr’’’’’’’’)) spontaneously began to insult the audience. He climbed up a ladder and shouted, “I spit on you. You, with your rotten concept of art.” This marked the official beginning of Tachisme in Vienna. Arnulf Rainer „Aller Anfang ist schwer”, Frühe Arbeiten 1949- 1961, DuMont, 2009 - Künstlerische Biographie Beginnings In 1951, at the age of twenty, I first began to make drawings with closed eyes. My faith in previous art was extinguished. I was in crisis, I had almost reached rock bottom. I didn’’’’’’’’t know how, what, why or wherefore. Something completely new, that has never been done, seemed essential to me. Coming from Surrealism, I was interested in the ideology of psychic automatism. So I decided to discover something new by closing my eyes, letting myself slide into the next thought, giving myself over to my impulses, seeking only to understand my own will and desires... Signs in the Mind Fearing that I would find no way to give art up altogether, I lay around for weeks brooding, but tried to draw in my mind. In doing so I came across gestures, indicative gestures that forced themselves upon me over and over again: short symbols that lasted only seconds. I tried to write down these hand movements on small sheets of paper, as in an act of seismography. I had found something, I had caught hold of an output motor that now would not let me go. Like a shooter or a swordsman I forced myself into a state of intense concentration. The scribblings soon became clearer. I recognised their figures; they were always the same central or vertical lines, with the exception of occasional wavy, hairy, light strokes. Naively, I thought myself to have found the holy grail, the shorthand for art itself. More often now I would keep my eyes open, producing larger formats, consciously pursuing those central and vertical lines. A sense of style and objective had imposed themselves. Soon, I could do nothing else... Arnulf Rainer, Schriften, Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2010 1951 Im März findet die erste (und einzige) Ausstellung der „Hundsgruppe“ in den Räumen der Wiener Gesellschaft für Wissenschaft und Kunst statt. Trotz der Präsenz abstrakter Arbeiten von Mikl und Hollegha sind die surrealistischen und phantasmagorischen Werke in der Überzahl-Rainer selbst hatte den Trennungsstrich zum Surrealismus noch nicht vollzogen. Bei der Eröffnung kommt es zu einem regelrechten Kunstskandal: Rainer, der sich damals „TRRR“ nannte-was an das Knurren eines Hundes erinnern sollte-, startet voller Enttäuschung über die Eröffnungsrede von Ernst Fuchs eine spontane Publikumsbeschimpfung. Er steigt auf eine Leiter und schreit: „Ich spucke auf Euch. Ihr mit Eurer verrotteten Kunstauffassung.“ Damit beginnt offiziell der Tachismus in Wien. Arnulf Rainer „Aller Anfang ist schwer“, Frühe Arbeiten 1949-1961, DuMont, 2009 - Künstlerische Biographie Anfänge 1951, zwanzigjährig, begann ich erstmals Zeichnungen mit geschlossenen Augen anzufertigen. Mein Glaube an die bisherige Kunst war erloschen, ich war in einer Krise, an einem Nullpunkt angelangt. Ich wußte nicht wie, was, wozu, warum. Etwas völlig Neues, noch nie Gemachtes, schien mir unentbehrlich. Aus dem Surrealismus kommend, war ich an der Ideologie des psychischen Automatismus interessiert. So entschloß ich mich, Neues, Unbewußtes dadurch zu entdecken, daß ich die Augen schloß, mich in den nächsten Einfall gleiten ließ, allen Impulsen in mir nachgebend, nur trachtend, mein eigenes Wollen und Wünschen kennenzulernen… Zeichen im Geiste Mit der Befürchtung keinerlei Weg zu finden, die Kunst überhaupt aufzugeben, lag ich wochenlang herum, sinnierte, versuchte aber, im Geiste zu zeichnen. Dabei stieß ich auf Gesten, Zeichengesten, die sich mir immer wieder aufdrängten: kurze, sekundenschnelle Kürzel. Auf kleine Blätter wagte ich es, diese Handbewegungen seismographisch niederzuschreiben. Ich hatte etwas gefunden, ich hatte eine Outputmontorik erwischt, die mich nicht mehr losließ. Wie ein Schütze oder Fechter zwang ich mich zu strengster Konzentration. Die Kritzel wurden bald deutlicher. Ich erkannte ihre Figuren, es waren stets die gleichen zentralen oder vertikalen Linien, manchmal ausnahmsweise wellige, haarige, leichte Striche. Naiv meinte ich den Stein der Weisen, das Kürzel für die Kunst überhaupt gefunden zu haben. Immer öfter behielt ich jetzt die Augen offen, produzierte größere Formate, strebte die zentralen und vertikalen Gestalten bewußt an. Stilisierung und Zielsetzung hatten sich eingestellt. Ich konnte bald nichts anderes mehr machen… Arnulf Rainer, Schriften, Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2010
