about the collection


Who the hell is … SpallArt?

The private art collection SpallArt initially evolved from the enthusiasm for the diversity of possibilities that photography uses to obstruct, to deny and to challenge our perception.
The art collector Andra Spallart acquired first contemporary photographic works in the mid 1980s – after its move to Vienna in 1995, the constantly growing collection got a clear orientation and emphasis: contemporary photography from Austria – certainly with reference to the European context.

Video works of various photo artists were added later. From 2010 on, the advisory artist and curator Dr. Fritz Simak helped to supplement the private collection with the very important fundament of classical American and European photo works. Two large projects were developed in cooperation of the SpallArt and Simak collections: the illustrated book SPUTNIK Vol. I as well as the exhibition “Magic of the Object – Three Centuries of Photography” in the Leopold Museum (Vienna) with the accompanying exhibition catalogue SPUTNIK Vol. II.

Andra Spallart realized the wish to show works chosen for the collection in public in the Foto-Raum gallery in the 18th district of Vienna. From 2001 until the end of 2013, curated exhibitions of individual artists of the collection as well as thematic group and guest exhibitions of, among others, the Helsinki-School from Finland as well as graduands and students of the photography class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, were presented.

After the closure of the Foto-Raum the art collector moved to Salzburg. Occasional pop-up shows in the storage titled OPEN SPACE offer a new format for an insight into the collection. To make the works of the artists available also away from exhibition rooms, the whole collection is presented online. Thereby, curators have the possibility to find supplementary loans for their exhibitions. Moreover, especially for the younger artists, any kind of publicity is worth more than keeping the works in a shaded storage. You will receive all information two or three times a year via our newsletter.

Current focuses of the collection theme are
Landscape and nature, abstraction and citation ....
the human being between desire, everyday life and delusion ....
our search for beauty and its treacherous illusion ....
