ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Markus Schinwald

In 2015, Magasin III has the pleasure of presenting a major solo exhibition of the Austrian artist Markus Schinwald. Based on interests ranging from psychology and literature to dance and the history of fashion, he explores the idea of the human body as a cultural construction. He is fascinated by the possibilities, but also the conflicts,  we can experience with our bodies and also how our bodies work as a stage for our inner life; filled with lust, driving forces, fears, and inhibitions. The viewer meets sculptures of splayed table legs, distorted 19th century portraits, marionettes, films without beginning or end in site-specific installations. The artist himself describes his work as a form of introspective experiences trying to present our complex relationship to ourselves.
