A selection of participating artist | Marcus Geiger, Peter Sandbichler and Alfredo Barsuglia, Kathrin Plavcak and Club Fortuna
Marcus Geiger deals repeatedly with the Vienna Secession: in 1992 he put a black bobble hat on the golden dome, six years later he painted the facade red, and in “Portraits and Sausages” he reproduced the iconic group portrait of the founding fathers. Geiger has been working within and around the context of art, studying it in aesthetic, architectural terms and exploring its political and economic connotations. He introduces everyday material and objects into this context, which is furnished both two- and three-dimensionally. The Belvedere21 Vienna has selected Marcus Geiger for the #artistoftheweek on there Facebook-Page. Marcus Geiger, Portraits and Wurst, 2006 #artwork of the week via Facebook
Alfredo Barsuglia's installation "the wonder" from the Kulturverein Währing and Parallel Vienna Art Fair 2020, is very well known. Currently works of the artist are on View at the Nicole Gnesa Gallery in Munich (more on their website) Barsuglia's work deals with socio-critical issues and plays with expectations by baffling the audience with his often absurd installations, which at first glance aren’t always recognizable as being works of art.
Peter Sandbichler is an Austrian artist who lives and works in Vienna. In 1995 he exhibited in the Austrian pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia. He works in the field of sculpture, object art, media art and installations. His work depicting folded, structures, from cardboard to concrete or metal, reminding often of huge three dimensional origamis.
