Hier & Jetzt Heimo Zobernig

Price: €15

Hei­mo Zobernig’s ex­per­i­men­tal ap­proach to the con­cept of sculp­ture of­ten leads him to pre­vi­ous­ly un­ex­plored boun­daries be­tween art and ar­chi­tec­ture or de­sign. For in­s­tance, he de­vel­oped two large-scale, black in­s­tal­la­tions for the floor and ceil­ing of the Aus­trian pav­ilion at the Venice Bien­nale in 2015, which play­ful­ly ques­tion the re­la­tion­ship be­tween bodies in space. Part of this rad­i­cal yet min­i­mal­ist in­s­tal­la­tion was trans­ferred to the Mu­se­um Lud­wig where he full-scale re­pli­ca served as a pedes­tal for the mu­se­um’s sculp­ture col­lec­tion. This succinct place­ment can be read as a hu­mor­ous and iron­ic com­men­tary on col­lec­tions and artis­tic self-con­cep­tion.

Heimo Zobernig

Published by Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna, 2014, 96 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 30 cm, German/English

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Heimo Zobernig, Mudam Luxembourg, April 29 – September 7 & kestnergesellschaft Hannover, 21 November 2014 – 2 Februrary 2015.

Heimo Zobernig (*1958 in Mauthen, Austria) occupies a central position in contemporary art with his diverse, genre- spanning work. The artist, who lives in Vienna, works with painting, sculpture, architecture, graphic and furniture design, video, performance and music. He often uses everyday materials such as cardboard, styrofoam, pressboard, linen and fluorescent lights to create his objects and spatial interventions. The unpretentious material, coupled with a simple, geometric use of forms, contributes to the soberly pragmatic impression.

With texts from Heinrich Dietz, Helmut Draxler, Veit Görner, Enrico Lunghi and Clément Minighetti
