GÖSTA NEUWIRTH: L'oubli bouilli
L’oubli bouilli - Vanish…. It is a title that evokes the following question: just where do ‘cooked-up forgetting and disappearance’ lead? If forgetting has been conserved in a process, then it does not actually disappear all that easily. The decisive elements are ambivalently connoted metaphors, as well as angle of view and attitude. And a cryptic appendix concerning the arbitrary either-or. Does Gösta Neuwirth (born in Vienna in 1937) dream his works’ birth? It’s not outside the realm of possibility.
