Impossible Love

Einladung: Impossible Love. 2015

11.09.2015 - 17.10.2015

curated by_vienna 2015, Tomorrow Today, Wien / Österreich
Projektraum Viktor Bucher, Wien / Österreich

Die Ausstellung Impossible Love erschafft ein unmögliches Museum, das nicht Objekten, sondern Geschichten gewidmet ist. Als Portrait eines bevorstehenden Gefühls, erzählt es eine Geschichte von der Geringfügigigkeit und dem Trübsinn der Sehnsucht und kreiert so die Szenerie für ein im Wesentlichen performatives Projekt. Eingeladene Künstlerinnen, Schauspieler, Poetinnen, Musiker und andere Performerinnen erschaffen die dekadente Darstellung einer Hoffnungslosigkeit, die gejagt aber niemals besessen werden kann....

The exhibition Impossible Love aims to create an im- possible museum, a museum not of objects but of stories. As a portrait of a feeling to come, it tells a story about the immateriality of desire and its blues, making the setting for an essentially performative project. Invited artists, actors, poets, musicians and performers create a decadent representation of a hopelessness to be most hunted, and never possessed.


My love comes to me
in ribbons and robes
roses and thorns
foxes and crows He tells me he loves me
by the end of his whip
my loneliness flickers
like a candle once lit Love is a very good dog, my love
love is a very good dog,
love is a very good dog my love
a very good, very good, dog My lover knows me
by zippers and chains,
cocaine and lipstick,
sheets white and stained Oh love is a very good dog, my love
a very good, very good, dog He loves me when I beg and sit,
I come when he calls me,
I come undone,
I come whimpering and clean
I burn down the forest and conquer the sea Oh love is a very good dog, my love
love is a very good dog,
love is a very good dog my love,
a very good, very good, dog

Matthew Dickman A VERY GOOD DOG, 2015.


Impossible Love is a portrait of a feeling to come, a story that speaks about the immateriality of desire and its blues. An accumulation of disrupted temporalities creates the setting for an essentially performative project. Invited artists, actors, poets, musicians and performers create an utmost decadent representation of a hopelessness to be most hunted, and never possessed. An exhibition should be an organism–in essence - unnameable, like a feeling that should never cease to constitute or to escape itself: an exhibition should be a desire. In this sense, the proposed exhibition is an experience more of loss than of accumulation, facing immateriality more than gathering objects: a constant loss of its own sense, at least. Whatever its protocols, its procedures, its strategies, I understand this exhibition to be a system of desires and, in fact, a pluralist history with multiple temporalities. As curator, my role is to be its narrator, to understand its failures and tell its story. What we will create is an impossible museum, a museum not of objects but of stories. “The work [in this museum] draw whoever devotes himself to [them] towards the point where [they] undergo the ordeal of impossibility: an experience which is precisely nocturnal, which is that of the night” (Maurice Blanchot). What we will create is a fiction: we will tell the story of a feeling to come.

Impossible Love is an exhibition composed and produced by Vincent Honoré with Nicoletta Lambertucci
