My awesome exhibition

English

Leander Schwazer is a painter working with a broad range of Media. He understands painting, in a neo-conceptual sense, like a black box. «30 most Famous People of All Time», «Bikini» and «The Alphabet I got dry with» are just a few titles of shows Leander Schwazer has lately produced. Each title refers to the hidden logic Leander Schwazer seeks to discover in everyday materials. In his work something begins to speak—something pre– or perhaps something post–human.

Deutsch

Leander Schwazer begreift Malerei in einem neokonzeptuellen Sinn als Black Box. »30 most Famous People of All Time«, »Bikini« oder »The Alphabet I got dry with« lauten einige der Titel von Ausstellungen, die Leander Schwazer in letzter Zeit produziert hat. Jeder Titel bezieht sich auf die verborgene Logik, die Leander Schwazer in alltäglichen Materialien zu entdecken sucht. In seinen Arbeiten beginnt etwas zu sprechen, was vor dem Menschen und vielleicht nach dem Mensch liegt.

Italiano

Leander Schwazer intende la pittura in senso neo-concettuale, come un Black Box. «30 most Famous People of All Time», «Bikini» o «The Alphabet I got dry with» sono alcuni titoli di mostre che l’artista ha realizzato negli ultimi tempi. Ciascun titolo si riferisce alla logica nascosta che Leander Schwazer cerca di scoprire nei materiali di uso quotidiano. I suoi lavori ci trasmettono qualcosa che sta prima e forse anche dopo dell’uomo.
