Franz Josef Noflaner (1904, St. Ulrich -1989, Brixen) war ein Schriftsteller, Dichter und Maler, der im Grödnertal lebte. Im Laufe seines Lebens schuf er einen Dialog zwischen den drei Disziplinen, indem er sie zu einer bizarren Maschine der „Welterzeugung“ verband. Im Zentrum seiner symbolträchtigen Malerei steht der Mensch, der über das fragile Beziehungssystem zwischen dem eigenen Ich und der Natur reflektiert. Im Hinblick auf den Schwerpunkt der diesjährigen Biennale erhalten die Kompositionen surrealer Bilder eine zeitlose Dimension und können im Einklang mit seiner bewegten Sprache interpretiert werden.

Für die 7. Biennale Gherdëina ließen sich der Kurator Adam Budak und der italienische Künstler Marinella Senatore von folgender Verszeile inspirieren „Die Sonne scheint solange die Sehnsucht weint“ inspirieren. So verwendeten sie den Vers als Titel der Lichtskulptur, deren rote Neonbuchstaben den Eingang zum Ausstellungsraum der Sala Luis Trenker erleuchten. Zusätzlich wird eine Auswahl von Noflaners Gemälden und Zeichnungen in der Ausstellung der Biennale zu sehen sein.

Franz Josef Noflaner (1904, Ortisei -1989, Bressanone) fu uno scrittore, poeta e pittore che visse in Val Gardena. Nel corso della sua vita ha creato un dialogo tra le tre discipline combinandole in una bizzarra macchina di „produzione mondiale“. Al centro della sua pittura altamente simbolica c’è l’essere umano, che riflette sul fragile sistema di relazioni tra il proprio io e la natura. In vista del focus della Biennale di quest’anno, le composizioni di immagini surreali assumono una dimensione senza tempo e possono essere interpretate in armonia con il suo linguaggio in movimento.

Per la Biennale Gherdëina 7, il curatore Adam Budak e l’artista italiana Marinella Senatore si sono ispirati alla seguente strofa „Il sole splende fino a quando il desiderio piange“. Così hanno usato il verso come titolo della scultura di luce, le cui lettere rosse al neon illuminano l’ingresso dello spazio espositivo della Sala Luis Trenker. Inoltre, una selezione di dipinti e disegni di Noflaner sarà esposta nella mostra della Biennale.

Franz Josef Noflaner (1904, Ortisei -1989, Brixen) was a writer, poet and painter who lived in the Val Gardena. In the course of his lifetime, he created a dialogue between the three disciplines, interconnecting them to form a bizarre ‘worldmaking’ machine. At the centre of his symbol-charged painting is man as he reflects on the fragile system of relations that exists between his own self and nature. With regard to the focus of this year’s Biennale, compositions of surreal images acquire a timeless dimension and may be interpreted in line with his moving language. 

For the 7th Biennale Gherdëina, the curator Adam Budak and the Italian artist Marinella Senatore were inspired to use the words of his poem ‘Die Sonne scheint solange die Sehnsucht weint’ (The sun shines as long as it cries with desire) as the title of  the illumination whose neon letters will light up the entrance to the exhibition space of  the Sala Luis Trenker. Additionally, the selection of Noflaner’s paintings will be on view in the Biennale’s exhibition.
