Since 2010, has dedicated every year one solo exhibition to a young up-and-coming artist. The SOLO series serves as a platform and springboard for artists who are in the early stages of their careers, but already have an extensive oeuvre that FOTOGALERIE WIEN seeks to present to a broader public. This also includes support relating to cooperations and travel activities. The first goal of Olena Newkryta: "Odessa Photo Days 2019."
"Olena Newkryta works conceptually-performative, always referring back to socio-political questions relating to the the medium. She is interested in the possibilities of exchange, touch, absence and their material traces. Through surfaces that change upon contact, Newkryta collects fleeting memories of interaction with the viewers of her works. By turning touch itself into her raw material, and addressing it immanently, Newkryta's working method reflects a politics of the medium and the body." (Anna Spohn)
