Karin Fisslthaler

Karin Fisslthaler is one of our local artists currently using a studio
space offered by studio das weisse haus.

Artist´s statement

The main topic of my work is the human body, its nonverbal
communication system, representation and identity construction. I am
researching these aspects mostly in found images and carving out the
process of collective and individual reflections of human behaviour in
the media. I work with different kind of materials like film and video,
music or found pictures. By means of collecting, cutting and
reassemling I try to open already defined views and creating voids with
the objective of ambiguity of interpretation.
