Artist Statement

Roland Wegerer creates media artworks , photographs, sculptures and performances. By questioning the concept of movement, he tries to grasp language. Transformed into art, language becomes an ornament.

At that moment, lots of ambiguities which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface. Roland Wegerer’s media artworks focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualize reality. The attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language will be concentrated. 

In short, the lacks of clear references are key elements in the work. Through strict rules he creates pieces which can be perceived as liberating constraints. Romantic values such as ‚inspiration‘, ‚genius‘ and ‚authenticity‘ are thereby neutralized and put into perspective. 

Roland Wegerer currently lives and works in Linz (Austria). read more
