Marlene Hausegger

1984 * in Leoben
2003 - 2010 Studies at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna and École des Beaux Arts Montpellier, France.
She teaches at the Kunstuniversität Linz and is a member of the Panel for Art in Public Space Lower Austria since 2019.

Marlene Hausegger subverts public space in a very subtle way.
Her interventions always refer to existing structures that lie outside our everyday perception, are characterized by a dissecting, revealing gaze that brings these repressed places back into our awareness. Contexts of meaning that we take for granted are shaken by this form of interventionism. Their manifestations in public space have a temporary character, are anti-monumental in their gesture, disappear in the course of time like ephemeral traces. Only through documentation via the medium of the photograph do they experience the duration they deserve.
