Artist in Residence – Susanne Gabler

“I concern myself with images in the sense of imprints or marks on social and thereby material surfaces.

Sociopolitical and ecological realities cause inequalities, which are the reflected images of our human and emotional defects and are linked to all sorts of social restraints.

In working in public art I am interested in the process of appropriating public spaces.

Who occupies them? When and for whatever reason? The ecological conditions on our planet have especially been of concern in my work in recent years. In my work, an aesthetic image often serves as an image of our ecological drama.

My work is a reflection of what I observe and address to the viewer.”
