ANITA LEISZ

Austrian artist Anita Leisz primarily works with semi-finished products, with sheet goods, that are fabricated for construction and interior finishes. The surfaces are specially treated, the sheets are cut, glued or screwed together resulting in the most accurate objects that hang on the wall or stand in space.

With their strong presence, the sculptures develop an essential, bodily character and draw attention to how the objects, the space and we as viewers interact. Anita Leisz’ work is marked by stringency and openness, intensity and ease. It equally deals with the possibilities of sculptural acts as well as with the architectural and institutional framework of its presentation.

Anita Leisz was born in 1973 and lives and works in Vienna.

Curated by Luisa Ziaja.
