ABOUT THE ARTIST
Visual Artist, born 1984 in Austria.
Focus on text, picture, installation and performance with conceptual approach.
Works and lives in Vienna with his partner Fariba Mosleh and his daughters Flora and Fauna.
My works oscillate between this and that.
They are not simply what they are.
Ask me what a work of art is?
Meaning? Knowledge? Reason? Solution?
Well I think you think quite a lot for years or so.
This might be the problem.
If you try to think then forget about trying.
You are still in the meta-mood of a crowd who will never be that meta.
I don‘t think it‘s that worth being that meta-moody.
I don‘t think so.
Just in need to explain.
