Artist´s statement

In her photographies, Michaela Bruckmüller plays with the profundity
and ambiguities hidden in the darkness of the night. Things are not
what they appear to be at first sight. Mysteries are uncovered behind the
obvious. Ambivalences and ambiguities can also be found during the
day, next to the succinct and the mysterious, rural dullness and
nostalgia, reality and fiction. The formal tension created by her work
requires careful perception of the delicacies which lie in her work.
The choice of motive causes confusion, the aspect of series and
repetition is an element of insisting on the topics. The materials used
for production are another aspect of relevance in her projects.
Embedding the pictures in synthetic resin creates a sense of depth
and organic structure. Reproduction on carpet fabric conveys the
aesthetically painful reminiscence of trashy textile wall hangings.
They contrast with sleek, technically perfect C-prints on aluminium.
