Remains of the Day

  • 4 Aug 2011 — 2 Oct 2011

Remains of the Day is a new collective commission by Vienna based artist Hans Schabus, exhibited during the Edinburgh Art Festival. The work consists of a presentation of the rubbish accumulated by the artist and his family during one calendar year – installed, cleaned, categorised and displayed in the white cube of the gallery. The work touches on our relationship with what remains from trade, labour and our human existence. Hans Schabus has sailed through Vienna’s sewers, flooded the basement of the Kunsthaus Bregenz, sealed the entrance of the Secession in Vienna and transformed the space of the Curve in the Barbican. His exhibition at the Edinburgh Art Festival is bound to challenge and engage audiences.
