Featured Artist: Roland Wegerer


Roland Wegerer creates media artworks, photos, sculptures and performances. By questioning the concept of movement, Wegerer tries to grasp language. Transformed into art, language becomes an ornament. At that moment, lots of ambiguities and indistinctness's, which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface. ​

Roland isolates the movements of humans and/or objects. By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound. By applying a wide variety of contemporary strategies, he finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities. The artist also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking man who experiences a continuous loss.

Through strict rules he creates pieces which can be perceived as liberating constraints. Romantic values such as 'inspiration', 'genius' and 'authenticity' are thereby neutralized and put into perspective. Roland Wegerer currently lives and works in St. Nikola and Linz in Austria
