—With art I would like to raise questions and as a result produce things that put themselves in question.
Heimo Zobernig's work is a quest for the elemental. He dissects phenomena almost scientifically and presents their components in new constellations. The question is what art can produce.—Museums Quartier.
Drawing on various art histories he questions the principles and conditions which underpin them; challenging and reinterpreting them with a lightness of touch and an economy of material that is at times playful, dry, witty, unsettling and disarming. Born in 1958, in Austria, Heimo Zobernig's work includes sculpture, video, text, painting, installation, architectural intervention and performance. —Tate.
