Bruno Gironcoli's large-scale sculptures are like models in terms of vitality and growth on a large scale, like machines that do not perform any tasks but rather bring forth alternative visions of different contexts and processes. The artist gave his last big exhibition held at the Vienna Museum of Applied Arts the title "The Unbegotten" - a good description of his private mythology but also an allusion to the hidden, the Other of which he says: "My works are as aggressive as the parent-child situation also can be in reality..." (Interview with Bruno Gironcoli, in: Der Standard, 20.5.1997).
The jury recommended that the piece "Figur V, flach mit drei Trauben" (Figure V, flat with three grapes) be purchased. The work alludes to the motiv of fertility in the title with ears of corn, grapes, leaves, spoons, figures, etc. that can be associated with different more or less abstract forms. Such elements are typical for Gironcoli's work and, as Armin Zweite has written, "...sacral and vegetable, past and present, poor and valuable, clear and intricate flow together or become detached from each other..." (catalogue of the Museum des 20. Jahrhunderts, 1990). In this connection Gironcoli speaks of "hackneyed flourishes": "If it is true that the kitsch formalizes what a collective shares in terms of happiness then the flourishes strained by me, this schlieren, a being that imitates that which was claimed by the collective whole so as to get a touch of happiness."
(Bruno Gironcoli)
