Artefakte

36|Projectcell, Vienna
curated by Martina Menegon and Shahab Nedaei
2019

with works by: Xavier Gschnitzer

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.
