Bernhard Fruehwirth

Reelle Duelle

May 1 – June 20, 2004

Bernhard Fruehwirth’s works are often based on biographical events and everyday observations, which he translates into model-like situations or states using various transformational processes. This process of transfer fragments the original references to the primary sources in such a way that they are no longer present as a superstructure, but generate a relationship of tension between idea and image, between index and symbol.


Bernhard Fruehwirth, born in 1968, lives and works in Vienna.
