petra egg
"It was on the basis of her collection of picture postcards that Petra Egg developed the concept for her Post exhibition at Salzburg’s Galerie Eboran. The concept focused on the duality of a picture postcard’s message, its obverse and reverse sides, the valency of the information conveyed through picture and text. These aspects were also the trigger for more in-depth reflections on working with substitutions and illusions, with deceitful shifts between signifié and signifiant, as a paraphrase, an explanation of Petra Egg’s work method in general that alludes to but also clarifies."
