Alexandra Bolzer visual artist / Vienna

*1971. living and working in Vienna . AT

The conceptual, recent work of Bolzer deals with the effects of the close network of globalisation, politics and turbo capitalism on the individuals of global cities. Urban spaces are used like transperencies of societies sensitivities which are filled with klischees, prejudices and learned roles. People are feeling strange, isolated and lost there. there is a gulf between the protagonists and the background, where all the tension meets in a standardised world.

Topics like gender roles, politics, media control and cultural differneces got more important since Bolzer travelled to Tokyo or Shanghai. In her work she tries to bridge the gulf between the different world pictures and shows the commonalities of both- east and west. Her critical request will be found in every single artwork. Bolzer wants to make the people think about her work and the topics she shows. Bolzer wants to touch her audience in a different, strange way.
