Heimo Zobernig Biography

In the early 80s, after having studied set design in Vienna, Heimo Zobernig turned to abstraction. His early work explored the effects of lyrical abstraction and repetition of geometric patterns. Associated with the Viennese New Wave, Heimo Zobernig is interested in video and performance. His works are inspired by the minimal aesthetic of television and the artist likes to work on the issue of double: double of the artist, double space, or twice of the work. More recently, Zobernig’s paintings appears as phantomatique. The form is pure and minimal, and the work constitutes a thick fog from which emerges a lettering defining a word.
