IRIS ANDRASCHEK | MARLENE HAUSEGGER | ALOIS MOSBACHER
Iris Andraschek was born in Horn in 1963 and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and the Freskoschule in Bolzano. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the Austrian Art Prize for Fine Arts.
The work of the Austrian artist is characterized by an interest in everyday cultural and socio-political motifs. The relationship between man and nature, alternative life designs, and questions about a fairer way of living together are recurring themes in her art. Communication is central to her research-based work. This is reflected in projects that focus on people’s personal experiences. (Excerpt from the exhibition at Lentos 2022)
Marlene Hausegger was born in 1984 in Leoben and studied at the University of Applied Arts and the École des Beaux Arts in Montpellier.
She is particularly interested in the hidden limitations and disguised possibilities of social situations, which she discovers primarily in public space and marks with simple means such as colored foils, adhesive strips or chalk strokes. The results are often temporary interventions and installations as well as accompanying drawings that are characterized by formal lightness, enigmatic humor, and visual power. Marlene Hausegger is continuously present in numerous exhibitions and festivals at home and abroad. (Text by LiquidFrontiers)
Alois Mosbacher born in Strallegg in 1954 studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
“Surprisingly, Mosbacher’s art is always personal, radically individualistic, even anarchistic, unrestrainedly arbitrary, totally sovereign and manically “self-centered” and at the same time almost “neutral”, almost indifferent, almost thing-objective. At the same moment he is able to foreground the subject – as something irrational, as something inexplicable, as something unpredictable – and thereby to absolute its meaning, and yet to completely relativize the narrative as such, even to annihilate – through the par excellence “painterly” manipulations – the “narrative” that directly connects the picture with the artist’s life. (Citation: Lóránd Hegyi, Catalog Alois Mosbacher, MUMOK Vienna, 1997)
