Gunda Gruber. The Geometry of Non-Orders
The artist Gunda Gruber (Salzburg, AT, 1971) has been working for many years on the intersection between video, photography, graphic art, and architecture. Many of her series consist of layered elements and multimedia installations that challenge our perceptions of space and time and make for a vivid experience of discontinuities and uncertainties as well as the artist’s creative process. Stages of reality overlap in Gruber’s oeuvre as the space of film becomes an extension of the physical universe; structures borrowed from nature undergo abstraction, and social arrangements are subjected to scrutiny. Dialogue is central to her practice: the artist’s engagement with her materials; the interactions between the forms and strata within a work; and, finally, the works’ dialogue with the beholders.
On occasion of the artist’s receipt of the 2022 Grand Prize for Visual Art of the State of Salzburg, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents her first solo exhibition at a museum, showcasing a comprehensive selection from her output of the past ten years.
Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna, will be bringing out a publication to accompany this exhibition.
