In “Hyperartefakte” forms of clay, styrodur and paper are
reconstructed, cast, photographed, and scanned in 3D. The final
exaggerated, idealised, reinterpreted forms imitate digital
materiality, gestures and objects. Shifting between clay and
source codes, DIY and machine management, Xaver Gschnitzer
creates a hyper-nature in which the linear work process is
suspended and new forms and artefacts arise.
Xaver Gschnitzer (South Tyrol) is an artist based in Vienna.
His installations deal with the imaginary and the illusionary, as
well as the relation between media and materials, object and
ideas. He graduated at the department of Transmedial Art, led by
Brigitte Kowanz, of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
