Andrea Büttner at Kunsthalle Wien


In the woodcuts' simplicity, scraping out of image, in recycling outmoded genres as quaintness, in their weakness, their fragilely cut iconography, in feeling contemporary archaeologic, like cut glass printed, like things made by nuns, or your mum, in feeling pleasantly non-art by virtue of their being art, so aesthetically wounded, the woodcuts are good.
