ORDINARY and EXALTED
Bruno Gironcoli (1936–2019) is considered one of the most influential artists in Austrian contemporary art. His oeuvre is a highly personal cosmos: everyday objects mutate and become artistic set pieces that discuss birth, parenthood, eros, violence, and sexuality in the form of a private mythology, thus turning them into metaphors for human existence.
“I was looking for a sound, rather than an abstraction. I didn’t want to make anything others had already completed; I wanted to meet my own world and touch upon questions that are still unsolved for me. I probably also wanted to create that lost image of man, without setting it.” - Bruno Gironcoli
