"Hingabe", Katarina Janeckova
Archetype: The Giver

23.06.2022 – 19.08.2022

Together with the Slovak artist Katarina Janeckova Walshe, the exhibition series Odyssey presents the fourth archetype "The Giver" under the title "Devotion". 

The qualities of the Giver appear venerable at first. However, if giving develops into an addiction, it leads to the deliberate creation of co-dependencies and usually ends in martyrdom.


The oeuvre of Katarina Janeckova Walshe visualizes the characteristics of this historically female archetype through the figurative depiction of a process of finding one's way between one's own sexuality and motherhood. To this end, the artist illustrates the multi-layered role of women, fragmenting the turmoil between autonomous personhood and the expectations placed upon her as mother and wife.
