Coronet Inside Out: Manfred Wakolbinger
Austrian artist Manfred Wakolbinger shares an insight into his sculptural and video work for Coronet Inside Out.
“Inside – out is the theme of many of my artworks, you can say. It goes both ways. From “Inside – out”, to see and feel what surrounds you, where is your place. But also from the “outside – in”. You go to other galaxies – to look back from far away – to find yourself. In my sculpture work and installations, I always work on space. On the “negative horizon” (Paul Virilio). Where is the edge between us and the outside. Does it move? I`m sure it does! My video-work is based on photography I do under water. I use pictures of “Salpes” from the space in the water- the macro world, to create videos of travels through galaxies – developed by myself.
In this video we go around in my sculpture show at the “Museum für bildende Kunst” in Leipzig and find the sculpture “Stargazer” to look through. And our look goes up into some galaxies, and we do too!” – Manfred Wakolbinger
