The entire trade with ancient art has been criminalized for years, there were assumptions about terror financing, about blood ancient art, a true crusade has started, laws against the trade have been passed – and only then a research project called Illicid worth millions was initiated to shed light into the criminological dark field. What was the result? An acquittal for the trade with ancient art! There are no illegal objects traded in Europe – e.g. from Syria or Yemen! This must now be acknowledged by cultural politicians and archaeologists, who have tried for years with their non-verified defamations to be in the spotlight. They will, no they must now fall silent – and dealers and collectors can again unhindered dedicate themselves to the oldest collection field in art history: Antiquities.

Save the Date: On 21 March at 7 p.m. we cordially invite you to the first major exhibition of the year in our showroom in Untere Viaduktgasse 55 in Vienna. Entitled “Time is a Moving Image of Eternity”, a quote by Plato, we exhibit ancient objects with the best provenances, which serve today as written testimonies. As one highlight amongst others stands a 1.8 m high sarcophagus panel depicting only one, but all the more beautiful hieroglyph column covering the entire length. What does it read? Be surprised at the exhibition.
In addition, the sculptor Jochen Höller has produced exclusively for this exhibtion works, which in combination with ancient objects emphasize new connections and synergies, which inspire to realize time and its transience. What to expect? Here a preview: The work “Black Whole” consists of approximately 12 000 letters, which were cut out from Jan Assmann’s book “Zeit und Ewigkeit im Alten Ägypten”. Höllerer’s contribution to the exhibition is curated by Hema Makwana.

We are delighted to welcome you to our new exhibition “Traces of Stone”. From stone Eros and Aphrodite to Bacchus’ smile – the gallery proudly introduces new ancient acquisitions of marble, limestone and porphyry with the best provenances. In addition, the Austrian artist Nicole Krenn presents a selection of her graphic work. With two series “Black Night” and “Apocalypse” she thematises in artistic cartographies the traces in alpine limestone. Limestone is amongst the stones the one where environmental impact most visibly leaves its traces. Karstified cliffs are formed over the centuries in a stone of biogenic origin. Here time takes shape in a compressed form. Nicole Krenn’s attention pertains to the non-obvious ascertainable. Invitation
