Marina Faust (1950 Vienna, AT―Paris, FR and Vienna, AT) is the 17th winner of the Otto Breicha Prize for Artistic Photography awarded since 1983 at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg. In memory of probably the most important sponsor of contemporary photography in Austria, the prize is donated every two years by the Breicha family.
The work of Marina Faust is multifaceted and extends over more than 40 years. It is characterized by the combination of applied fields of work in fashion, architecture and free artistic interpretations, especially in the field of extended portrait studies.
The exhibition will feature compilations from the artist's own collection and archive that will be recreated, modified and reactivated by Marina Faust, revising her view of image formats and materials. In addition a series of videos and installations will highlight the broad spectrum of her work.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.
