Ernst Miesgang

  • Austrian , 1980

  • Bio

    Ernst Miesgang's artworks often combine the remnants of everyday objects. He destroys kitschy ceramic figures to reassemble them into independent compositions. Or he takes images from newspapers and forms them into new pictorial worlds by repeating and varying individual motifs. The objects become far removed from their original context in the artist's highly individual assembly.

    Miesgang also works with digital tools to create collages with fragments of existing images of objects and people, developing a new kind of photographic material. In his artistic process, which often draws on scientific methods, he is not concerned with the objective representation of reality. Instead, he consciously introduces errors and interventions of non-human actors.

    Much of his work can be read as a satire on scientific models and concepts, criticizing the general faith in progress, speed, and growth of our modern world. In doing so, he proposes a radical paradigm shift - to rethink our value system. His artworks, on which the artist often works for months, can be seen as a plea for slowness, contemplation and reflection.

    The artist graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2018.
