Under the title Secret Beyond the Door Ebenhoch presents a new series of paintings. Their circular shape is reminiscent of a large hat. Starting with a series of smaller “traveling hats”, Ebenhoch plays with this shape and the associations it triggers – hat, nipple, bosom, eye with pupil and iris, lens, doorknob, light switch – as well as symbolic encodings. In interplay with stylistic elements of illusionist painting, she uses signs of cinematic imagery to create irritating moments and question traditional perceptions. In her work, Melanie Ebenhoch often deals with the interactions of painterly and architectural spaces that are charged with projections of the subconscious. As in cinematic mise-en-scènes, she places pictorial effect above narration – often through the objectified female body. The examination of film and cinema has long played an important role in her artistic practice. Melanie Ebenhoch, born in 1985 in Feldkirch, lives and works in Vienna.

Galerie Martin Janda was founded in 1992 by Martin Janda and from the beginning has always been an internationally active contemporary art gallery. In 1999 the gallery moved to its present location in the city centre of Vienna and together with four other renowned Austrian galleries, a new centre for contemporary art and discussion was formed at close proximity to the historical and iconic Vienna Secession, Academy of Fine Arts, Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Art History) and Museumsquartier. Our gallery programme concentrates on international contemporary art – conceptual art, painting, drawing, film/video, photography, sculpture as well as installation – and focuses on artistic positions that combine different experiences.
