Norbert Brunner-Lienz

Im Spiegel der Psyche

July 4 – September 7, 2003

A characteristic element in Norbert Brunner-Lienz’ work is his confrontation with language. In his audio installations and experimental radio plays, but also in his drawings and literary-artistic texts, he deconstructs and transforms psychological, iconographic, mythological and fantastic elements and meanings. This results in complex analytical and simultaneously aesthetic-poetic language images, which reveal new fields of relationships between icon, index and symbol and grasp text as a material and medium that is malleable and performable in fine art.


Norbert Brunner-Lienz, born in 1959, lives and works in Innsbruck and Vienna.
