Art event with talk

Studio Sylvie Proidl
Schottenfeldgasse 76/2
1070 Vienna

October 5, 2016 at 7pm

The topic "Luck" prompted the artist Sylvie Proidl to take a closer look at the symbols that supposedly summon up good luck. The magic that brings good luck must be equally good at warding off bad luck. The belief in luck, coupled with buying good luck charms deserves scrutiny. Visitors are asked to bring their own lucky charms with them and tell the others the story behind their symbols.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is the installation titled "Maneki neko upcycled", composed of popular charms from Asia: the artistically enhanced beckoning cats can be purchased.
