In Jenni Tischer’s exhibition “Pin” at mumok the form language of minimalist sculpture comes up against the history and practice of textile work. “Fabric pedestals” unroll along the walls and floor, open cubes show “Viennese netting,” and sculptural elements and surfaces allude to weaving frames and pin cushions. As part of the exhibition, curator Manuela Ammer and Jenni Tischer talk about the relation of “pins” (needles) and “PINs” (personal identification numbers), about textiles as a medium, and about what kind of narrative her exhibition writes.
