Otto Zitko. Die Kunstruktion der Geste / The Construction of Gesture

Labyrinthine, whirling lines surround the viewer from all sides – Otto Zitko’s pictures explode every frame. The Austrian artist examines the interrelations of drawing and space, of graphic expression and constructed architecture in large-format, space-consuming wall drawings and paintings. His works overwrite the structure of rooms to such an extent that they are redefined or even appear to disintegrate. The Construction of Gesture shows the genesis of this group of works, presenting Zitko’s various projects for galleries and private clients. Cross references to the artist’s works on paper and aluminium demonstrate the construction and staging of authenticity and subjectivity.
