Curated by Thomas Gegner
Gegnerhaus is a former inn in Attersee that has been hosting permanent exhibitions on over 600m2 since 2020. The initiator of the project is Thomas Gegner, who invites artists from Upper Austria or with a connection to the region to exhibit in the various rooms of the house.
In between was developed in 2019 by Daniela Trinkl during her 3 month residency at Pilotenkueche in Leipzig and now had the opportunity to be shown one more time. In the Gegnehaus In between was displayed in the old vaulted cellar. In this context, In between takes on the quality of a laboratory of unknown origin and purpose.

In her installation In between Daniela Trinkl reflects on the possibility of death and life being united in one state of being. Are they two simultaneous qualities that we carry within us? Is it just a question of perspective or point of view which form of being we are currently taking?
The artist asks whether these objects realized in the material porcelain come to her from another, a fifth dimension. Is this a dimension that encompasses both qualities at the same time? And do these three boxes offer a view into it?
In this sense, In between is funeral and birth at the same time, it's a medical laboratory, relic and urn as well as womb and anima.
