Founded in 2021, Parkside Gallery is a private art project space in cooperation with

Galerie Edition Stalzer (Vienna, Austria) and forum limbach (Limbach, Austria).


"Everyday life needs its opposite" - in this sense Parkside Gallery wants to give artists the opportunity to present their ideas and visitors the possibility to dive into their imaginary world and to be inspired by new perspectives - or as Picasso once said: "Art washes the dust of everyday life from the soul".

Time as individual perception

Our memory is constructed from moments of experience - sometimes in sequences, short film-like documentaries, sometimes in individual brief perceptions in time, like a photograph.

Flashes of the past, condensations of the memorable, because evidently impactful. Either way, they remain fragments, loosely strung together to form our remembered life – and leave a question unanswered: What was in between?

What happened in the intervals between the remembered parts of our memory? Was it relevant, in that it influenced the course of our lives, or insignificant, because better depicted by the life fragments remembered before and after?

We cannot know. Even conjecture remains in the dark. And yet, they existed, those moments and times that lie in darkness. Whether forever, that too remains questionable. We can only assume that these unremembered intervals, because they are a part of the path we have traveled, were significant, an indispensable part of the whole.

In this sense, the 13-part photographic work "The times in between" by photographer Harald Woschitz is a reflection on precisely these otherwise overlooked interstices. An attempt to remind us, through the use of timestamps, the temporal ruptures of Before, In Between, and After, of the possibility of also discovering memorable moments here: the possibility of the meaningful instead of the void in between.


As part of the SICHTweisen festival, which is taking place in Vienna for the second time and focuses on the new experience of music together with other art forms, there will be two special concert evenings again this year: On Thursday, November 16, and Friday, November 24, at 6:30 p.m., three exceptional musicians (Christoph Urbanetz, Hamidreza Ojaghi, and Mohmmadreza Azin) will enter into a photo-musical dialogue with the exhibited group of works by photographer Harald Woschitz under the title "Music meets Photography".

In the form of photo-musical narration, the musicians will undertake, as it were, to "bring to life" the memory underlying the photographic image - as an excerpt fixation in time - by setting in motion an inner dialogue: the expansion of frozen time, into a very personal, individual space of possibilities of sensing.

About writing and painting with light

The history of "light-painting“, also known as light-drawing or light-writing, a photographic technique of long exposure, dates back to the 1890s (Étienne-Jules Marey and Georges Demeny from France) and has since then moved and creatively challenged numerous artists - Andreas Feininger, Pablo Picasso, George Mathieu, Man Ray, to name just a few, to explore what Carl Aigner once so aptly called "the core of the photographic ... a writing of light, a photography with which one can unfold an unbelievable effect that no longer has anything to do with what we began to believe in with photography: that it can apparently show us reality in such an uncomplicated way".


In the exhibition «Light moves», the light-drawings of photographer Fritz Simak from 1974 and 2003 meet the light-writings of photographer Harald Woschitz from 2014, shown here for the first time.

A celebration of emotions, sensual experience and the invitation

to be enchanted by the power of light.

Change of meaning as a continuum of perception

In the exhibition Signs and Meaning two complementary concepts meet: language-pictures by Michael Endlicher and the picture-language by Harald Woschitz. The two undertake the attempt to uncover something new, unfamiliar and yet common from the confrontation of the opposites.


With the term language image or figurative figure we commonly associate sense-expanding, meaning-varying expressions or idioms. By opening our perception associatively through recourse to the unconscious, to experiences and their emotional embedding in memory, the linguistic image enables us to expand the original context of meaning. It promotes a change of meaning, which in the best case turns out to be a gain of meaning by way of a re-evaluation.

Endlicher works not only with the evocative power of linguistic images, but also - in his drama sheets - with "narratives" of one-word sentences that emerge alphanumerically, that is, through a random process. Nevertheless - or precisely because of this? - these depict the real dramas of life, existence, the cosmos, domination, etc. In the head sheets this principle collides with partly representational, partly abstract "Antlitzen", i.e. real pictures. Could we speak of an extended principle of the pictorial figure? After all, this is supposed to cause an increase in the processing speed of information and thus an expansion of our perceptual possibilities by simultaneously activating several areas of the human brain. But Endlicher often leaves us in the dark as to whether his signs are released from the convention of their meaning or are committed to their original content. The pictorial figure here is probably in the eye of the beholder - and Endlicher's figures of speech and signs, despite all theory, often remain in the closed, mysterious, like a pictorial riddle.


The viewer makes a similar – and yet different – experience with the visual language of the photo works by Harald Woschitz shown here. It, too, remains at first in the unknown. While Michael Endlicher starts from the written sign as the smallest unit of meaning in order to dare to reconstruct the “entire” reality from this nucleus, with Harald Woschitz the situation is exactly the opposite. Starting from the image of what is completed, often already in the past, the photographic works deconstruct everyday reality from the other side, so to speak. The supposedly real, the materially determined slides through formal alienation into an open context of meaning that has to be newly formulated, which points to the depth of the picture and its individual parts. Woschitz scours his environment for meaningful images; however, these are often relativized in the form of blurring, in ultimately abstract excerpts and in variations of what is superficially the same. Rarely is the individual photo a solitary bearer of meaning - only in the context of variants, variations and multiple attempts it can reasonably dare to trace the innermost reality.


At the interface, at the interaction of image-language and language-image in this exhibition, something new and unfamiliar is to be revealed in ourselves. Following Marcel Proust: "In reality, the viewer, when he looks, is a viewer of himself, to whom the work is handed by the authors as a kind of "optical instrument", so that he may recognize what he might not otherwise have been able to see in himself."

«Intimate Moment»
Harald Woschitz

November 16, 2022–January 20, 2023

Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 16 and Friday, November 18, 5-8pm
In addition, we ask for advance notice at

In times of change - an intimate moment of pause.
The 30-part photographic work "Intimate moment of a new beginning at the end of the old order" by Harald Woschitz takes its starting point in a stormy night of the year 2021. Using the example of the effects on the mighty hedge in the garden of a Viennese Gründerzeit house, viewers are invited to reflect on two conditions that could not be more different and at the same time condition each other: Moments of silence as a result of an abrupt change and a first inkling of the new in upheaval - signs of persistence in change.


Within the framework of the festival SICHTweisen, which is taking place in Vienna for the first time this year and which focuses on the new experience of music together with other art forms, we are very pleased to be able to invite you to two special concert evenings: On Thursday, November 17, and on Friday, November 25, at 6:30pm, two inspiring musicians (Esther-Rebecca Neumann/violin, Allesandro Traina/guitar) will enter into a photo-musical dialogue with the exhibited group of works by photographer Harald Woschitz under the title "Music Meets Photography".

In the form of photo-musical narration, the musicians will undertake with unique pieces of early music and premieres of contemporary music to "bring to life", as it were as a bridge, the memory underlying the photographic image - as a fragmentary definition in time - by setting in motion an inner dialogue: the expansion of frozen time, into a very personal, individual space of possibilities of sensing.

Concert tickets are available through Ö1-Ticket, 
directly at, or at the box office.

«Coast to Coast»
Brendan Kronheim, Harald Woschitz

July 7-August 23, 2022

Soft-Opening: July 6-8, 5pm-9pm
Please pre-register at  +43 676 750 1121 or



The exhibition "Coast to Coast" with the media photography and painting invites you to an associative journey along
Euro-American trade and migration routes.

The port cities of Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hoboken New Jersey and San Francisco form the cornerstones of this 
artisticpictorial expedition. Port cities as cultural clusters in their own right (“Cities are stronger than nations”, Richard Sennett) in the field of tension between the history of discovery of the United States and the transatlantic interactions 
with Western Europe, the historical starting point of this journey.

Based on a topographical mosaic of film-influenced subjects, various inter-sections and reference axes emerge that invite you to trace learned ways of seeing and coding.


How is cultural self-understanding constituted with geographical distance? 
It is questions like these that arise along this associative journey by Kronheim and Woschitz against the background of European roots and today‘somnipresent American way of life.

«Photographic Essays»
Harald Woschitz, Andreas Stalzer

The "Photographic Essays" are narratives in two senses: the photography itself, as a "narrative type ", and the separate, independent type of the essay about photography. Both the photograph and the text reflect the authors' personal  examination of a section of a personal reality.

The text that accompanies the picture, a subjective offer of interpretation or picture analysis, is an invitation to the viewer to follow with relish the traces that have been laid and wants to encourage them to open up their own personal universe of perception. In this sense, the essay offered naturally represents one of many possible interpretations.

The works shown are part of a project by Harald Woschitz (photography) and Andreas Stalzer (essay) that has been running since 2020 – two artists and researchers who meet in a "laboratory" to discover something new with a methodically designed experimental arrangement.

Starting with the photo, as a catalyst, an attempt is made here to critically examine contemporary the time-given way of perception. The challenge presented to the viewer, and the responsibility imposed onto them, is to perceive the photograph, a past lifted into timelessness, as an offer to understand their personal, now conceivable present, history and future as something changeable. In this context, the essay is just such a subjective catalyst, designed to enable the individual to open the door to their personal space of time and opportunities.

The "Photographic Essays" on display are not a conventional exhibition situation, where image and image description accompany each other as a functional pairing. They are rather the result of a shared narrative of an antithesis to the assertion of an objectively perceptible time. Just as traditional fairy tales adapt and change from generation to generation, the supposed reality here is also changeable and thus subject to our own prerogative of interpretation.

The selected form of presentation, namely the reduction to just two pairs of image and text, refers to two open pages of a book, combined with the invitation to start a very personal, inner dialogue with the “experiences” here.


The works from the "Photographic Essays", shown here for the first time, will be part of a book that documents the results of the ongoing "investigations". A bound form of independent  perceptions in time.
