Hans Kupelwieser 2016 aluminium powder-coated 110 x 80 x 40 cm Hans Kupelwieser is one of the most important Austrian concept and media artists of his generation. Born in 1948 in Lunz am See, Lower Austria, after finishing the graphic-arts school he graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna with Herbert Tasquil, Bazon Brock and Peter Weibel. Owing to his multi-faceted training history, he displays a diverse and clearly identifiable language of form and material. Kupelwieser‘s work reads like a symptomatic feature at the interface of flat and spatial forms, between a thoroughly methodical merging and juxtaposition of photography and sculpture – an interplay between artistic thinking and perspective – that addresses surface, object and function.
