Beschreibung des Verlags
The third annual exhibition catalog of the Austro Sino Arts Program is exceptional because almost all works have been created by the artists during their stay in China. These works are personal explorations drafted in an individual artistic language which negotiates between the grammars of the East and the West. The exhibition catalog offers an inside view of 21 Austrian artists: Hannes Boeck, Marbot Fritsch, Elisabeth Grübl, Harald Gsaller, Mike Hentz, Anna Hofbauer, Lieve D´hondt, , Heimo Lattner, Wie -yie Lauw, Thomas Lehner, Sonia Leimer, Christian Mayer, Johann Neumeister, Katrin Plavcak, Almut Rink, Bianca Regl, Klaus Schafler, Christof Schlegel, Florian Schmeiser, Gerlind Zeilner, and Joseph Francis Rock, how their perception is inspired and translated into artistic methods, to project a different view on place, form and content.
Twenty one artists lived in China, became accommodated to habits and rituals. Memorized, translated in to videos, movies, drawings, sculptures, photographs, texts, their artistic expression. Questioned the historical dimensions, did research while walking through cities and across China with their own individual artistic methods. For some it was a momentary configuration, for others a live changing experience.
