Christian Eisenberger’s work oscillates in the tension between the artistic recycling of trash in the manner of Arte Povera and the exploration of performing practices using the artist’s body in public space. In the style of Appropriation Art, Eisenberger’s work is verging on the limits of taste and is excessively breaking the rules of the art market. The artist builds ephemeral installations and fragile sculptures using fire and ice and works himself into the ground as a proliferating producer of images. This collection of Eisenberger’s sketches, designs, and reflections addresses issues of destruction and endangering, self-exposure and form finding, creation and death. His oeuvre consists of thousands of paintings and drawings and is well renowned far beyond Austria’s borders.
