Opening Hours: Thu and Fri, 2 pm to 6 pm

The theme of landscape and its representation in the visual arts as well as the theoretical discourse on nature, form the main concerns in Markus Guschelbauer's artistic practice. In his photographs, Guschelbauer places artificial objects—mostly simple graphic elements or geometric shapes—in natural landscapes, therefore creating a moment of abstraction and irritation in the perception of our environment. The basic forms of the resulting photographs double the monochrome center and thus become signs themselves, oscillating between index, icon and symbol. In the serial arrangement the photographs merge into a complex system of signs and debate landscape space, identity and the appropriation of nature.

A main feature in the latest issue EIKON #113 is dedicated to the artist.

Markus Guschelbauer (born 1974 in Friesach, lives and works in Vienna) studied at the Institute for Visual and Media Arts at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. He has been working as a freelance artist since 2009 with photography, video and installation works. His first monograph Territory was published by Fotohof in 2020.
