Claudia Märzendorfer

A Blazing World

Opening: Tue, 18.06.2019, 19:00

In her work, the artist Claudia Märzendorfer unites different artistic means of expression, combines philosophical approaches and (art) historical derivations out of no lesser need than to pursue the meaning of the world. 

Her installation "A Blazing World", which she developed especially for KUNST HAUS WIEN, she opens up several perspectives on a highly explosive reality: the pollution of the world's oceans by plastic waste, which can be traced back to the rampant capitalist consumerism of the Western world. With a central sculpture, two texts and a sound installation, the artist draws attention to the complexity of the situation. 

Curator: Verena Kaspar-Eisert
