Bruno Gironcoli is indisputably one of the most important artists in Austria today. His sculptures are as impressive as they are disturbing. These massive, brilliantly shining metal assemblages are constructed of expropriated fragments of human and animal bodies, of organic vegetation and forms resembling machines. The artist juxtaposes decorative ornamentation with baroque formal excess, oppressive compulsion with aggressive urge, each of which negates or intensifies the other. The focal point of this highly personal iconography is the human figure, and with it the question of the meaning of human existence. The themes of birth, sexuality, longing for happiness and the trials of human existence play a significant role in Gironcoli's art. He attempts to define the human image in circumscriptions, in detours, in a psychological view of the human environment . . ." This publication presents the artist's large-scale sculptures as well as a representative cross-section of his graphic oeuvre and thus offers a comprehensive, up-to-date view of his work over the past ten years.
