About Manfred Kielnhofer

Guardians of Time by Manfred Kielnhofer Mystique contemporary art sculpture Guardians of Time by the Austrian Manfred Kielnhofer observing and pretending the world. “The Guardians of Time” relates to the idea that since the beginning of time mankind has had protectors, both for historic and mystical reasons. It seems that only man himself is a potential source of danger for his own existence. In his works of art Manfred Kielnhofer deals with the natural human desire for security. Thus his oeuvre reflects genuine exploration, consideration and discussion of current as well as historic moods and sensibilities of his social environment. His works of art captivate with elaborate combinations of light and different technique. http://www.paranoias.org/2012/12/guardians-of-time-by-manfred-kielnhofer http://kielnhofer.com http://timeguards.com http://fotopark.at http://artpark.at http://contemporary-art.at http://lightart-biennale.com http://www.facebook.com/manfred.kielnhofer http://twitter.com/artbeyondlimits http://at.linkedin.com/in/contemporaryart http://gplus.to/contemporaryartdesign https://plus.google.com/photos/102958896899981777265/albums http://www.flickr.com/photos/artbeyondlimits http://www.tumblr.com/blog/contemporary-art http://www.youtube.com/user/kielnhofer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manfred_Kielnhofer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardians_of_Time_(Art)

Toronto Light Fest, o maior festival de luzes da cidade

Na prévia para a imprensa, estiveram presentes alguns artistas que fazem parte da exibição, como o austríaco Manfred Kienlhofer, que nos explicou o significado da sua obra, Guardians of Time, um conjunto de figuras translúcidas lembrando fantasmas.

Kienlhofer nos disse que ele as criou quando estava passando por um momento difícil em sua vida: havia quebrado as duas pernas num acidente de esqui (ele era instrutor, também participava em competições do gênero). Com isso, não pôde mais praticar o esporte, e teve de mudar de carreira. Hoje, ele diz que está melhor, “que a vida tem lá seus altos e baixos e temos de enfrentá-los”, assim como no esqui.

Figuras místicas e com ares de fantasma, dispersas por todo o complexo. Olhe para cima, para os lados, principalmente nos cantinhos… – obra: Guardians of Time, Manfred Kienlnhofer. Foto: TLF Divulgação

MANFRED KIELNHOFER, AUSTRIA

Manfred Kielnhofer is self-taught and his work spans the mediums of painting, film, photography, installation, performance and sculpture.

His work is predominantly concerned with the human figure, and its various forms and movements. The figure is an integral part of his work, and he often uses the human form as a tool, either in place of a canvas, or in a collaboration to produce large-scale installations or performances.

Kielnhofer has exhibited widely throughout Austria and his work has recently been featured in exhibitions in New York and Miami.
