Markus Schinwald

 

16. February 2008  – 18. May 2008

Featuring artworks by:
Markus Schinwald

The psychological debate between space and body, the uncanny and the disquieting, the deficits and the irrational depths of the individual and collective being – all are themes at play in the works of Markus Schinwald (born 1973, Salzburg). The most varied media are fused with apparent lightness in his work – from nightmarish films and puppet-like sculptures to re-worked history painting, and prosthetic design and clothes creations, which are subtly choreographed with one another. In his largest solo museum exhibition to date, Schinwald has created an architectonic overall production, which in the form of its display is oriented to the spatial designs of Austro-American stage designer and artist, Friedrich Kiesler (1890-1965).
