CARMEN BRUCIC

Focused on themes related to desire, emotional relationships, vulnerability and fragility from a confessional and intimate perspective. Therefore she developed several photographic works, theater projects, exhibitions and installations. further

IRINA GAVRICH

Irina Gavrich photographic work for art and fashion magazines, newspapers, design and art catalogues has a very particular, almost poetic tone. She uses intuition as a trigger for her camera, accomplishing her most emotional pictures. What you see is not a moment. It is a process.
furtherIRINA GAVRICH
Irina Gavrich was born in the USSR, in very young age her parents moved to Austria. She studed Visualmedia Design in Graz and at Ortweinschule and graduated in Photography. She lives in Vienna and works between Vienna, Berlin, Paris and New York.

SEVERIN KOLLER

...he bought ski googles to the shoot and insisted to sit on that snow covered bench. I guess I would have been to shy to ask him to do that, so I was relieved he just did it like that. We met, had coffee and then we walked. At this spot I asked him to stand in the light and look straight into it. Then he transformed...

born in 1986 Vienna, Austria       Severin Koller started photography at the age of 17. From 2005 to 2008 he studyied at the academy of fine arts Vienna. He is a working artist focusing on street photography, portraits and video production.

ANITA SCHMID

"POSSIBLE STANDING"
The body approaches the sourrounding space. As an object it interacts and resonates with the space, adds to the different structures, complements, and becomes part of the space. Architecture and figure are allowed to merge - they cause each other. While the architecture is fixed the body finds itself in unusual positions. furtherANITA SCHMID
born in 1986 Vienna, Austria      Schmid holds a diploma from the Academy of fine Arts Vienna. Her works are included at BMUKK photocollection, presented her work at Soloshows and was part of collective Exhibitions. She lives and works in Vienna.

ANDREAS WALDSCHÜTZ

"Mr. and Mrs. Bugg"
This story begins at the place and time where our contemporary world has ended. It could be considered as a moment of dark humor in a post apocalyptic state. It is also at this point that we introduce, Mr. and Mrs. Bugg. A short narrative of such an example. Beginning in reality and ending in a dream.
further ANDREAS WALDSCHÜTZ
born in 1976 Vienna, Austria     the self-taught visual artist started his career in film making. Since 2005, Andreas works as a full time photographer and video artist worldwide. All of his works have one clear signature: he creates images by applying his own aesthetic, borrowing from futuristic dream worlds.

STRATHMORE FINE ARTS presents
THE AUSTRIAN CULTURAL FORUM dc in Cooperation with YOUNG AUSTRIAN PHOTOGRAPHY
ARCHITECTURE | LANDSCAPE
MARCH 1 — APRIL 6, 2013
Mansion at Strathmore, Lockheed Martin Gallery

Over the past few years’ art photography has vividly taken off in Austria. Interesting developments and approaches - along with new opportunities - are now part of this new generation of photography. The works of the Austrian artists selected for this exhibition examine, in a wide range of ways, the perception and manipulation of our daily surroundings. The show provides a cross section of young, enterprising artists shaping the country’s contemporary photography scene with innovative technique, striking composition and stirring imagery.

Summary of the selected artists and their work:
CLEMENS ASCHER’s work 'desert structures' tries to explore the evolving relation between mankind and it´s surrounding, the often bizarre results of our constant struggle to colonize nature, even in her most hostile forms. CATHARINA FREUIS puts focus on sociological structures manifesting themselves - above all - in public areas, spaces that are used by several people in a "non-private" kind of situation, such as art or workspaces. Her intent is to irritate this attitude by creating stereotype, recognizable model rooms. These rooms experience a metamorphosis in the way that the habitual confidence has to be examined. The work of MARKUS GUSCHELBAUER hinges upon the landscape as an archaic subject.
As he learned during his childhood on a farm, for his work he goes out into nature and builds upon it. Unlike land art, he is not primarily interested in the process of nature`s effect on the artwork. His interventions are done for the photograph, for the camera with its fixed standpoint, set from the very start, and thus have fulfilled their task. Yet the act of building is an important part of this artistic project. CLAUDIA LARCHER’s artistic work deals with architecture. She is interested in places that are connected to history, familiarity and memory, questioning the meaning of “home” and “identity”.
In JULIE MONACO´s artificial digital conditions not occurring in nature are produced as abstracted reality. The production of digital nature occurs through the manipulation of predetermined parameters of a previously defined selection of software tools. It is part of the essence of the digital picture that, in utilizing the computer, it creates more than reality, but is still based on reality. By means of refined architectural and landscape photography, GREGOR SAILER has succeeded in giving a face to these otherwise effectively invisible, artificially created urban agglomerations that are hermetically sealed off from the eyes of the world either by walls or by their hostile surroundings.

Exhibition during FOTO DC 2012:



   ARCHITECTURE | LANDSCAPE - statement by Andreas Pawlitschek, Director Austrian Cultural Forum Washington

Young Austrian Photography - ARCHITECTURE | LANDSCAPE presents a cross section of the current Austrian photography scene. In addition to different approaches that the Austrian artists have

taken about architecture and landscape, the exhibition project provides an overview and insight into contemporary Austrian photo creativity.

   ARCHITECTURE | LANDSCAPE - by Alexandra Grausam, Chief Executive 'das weisse haus'

"Space and Nature" forms a visual starting point for a broad array of interpretations of the tangible experience of reality.

The works of the eight Austrian artists selected for this exhibition examine, in a wide range of ways, the perception and manipulation of our daily surroundings – worlds at once graspable and utterly alien, in part constructed -or perhaps in turn destroyed- by man or, not least, ones artificially generated, seemingly infinite in their reproducibility.

Nearly half of Austria’s terrain is covered with forest – an environment MARKUS GUSCHELBAUER negotiates, in his own words, in the dual guise of agriculturalist and manager. In his works the subject of vital resources is transposed to the Austrian woodland; he places nature itself on the stage, elevating it to the role of principal performer. CLEMENS ASCHER’s futuristic vision, on the other hand, takes on man’s hostile activities in the ‘colonialization’ of nature. Likewise, a platform for visions – permeated by a deep sense of time’s standing still – is offered by TINA RIBARITS in her photographs, in which artificial-seeming worlds create a space for memories but also for nightmares.

CATHARINA FREUIS utilizes irritation by staging equally artificial spaces that are, however, readily identifiable as stereotypes. In what ways does the viewer experience alienation?
From a technical standpoint JULIE MONACO goes one step further in the direction of the artificial construction of nature through her use of the computer. The sea becomes charged, its contrasts unnaturally increased, or it is made placid. She posits an image of nature generated in perfection, at once attractive and simultaneously disturbing.

CLAUDIA LARCHER attends to the connection between homeland and identity, memory and family history, placing them in a setting of clarity and reduction that nearly turn reality into abstraction. MARKUS OBERNDORFER works with the political history of yore that nevertheless continues to affect our lives, bringing it into the present day through contemporary representation and reprocessing. And GREGOR SAILER accords to current political sites unknown to most people because of the remoteness or inaccessibility of their locations – or because they are restricted military zones – a face and a new kind of presence, focusing us on our pronounced desire for security.
