Roland Wegerer (°1974, Amstetten, Austria) creates media artworks, photos, sculptures and performances. By questioning the concept of movement, Wegerer tries to grasp language. Transformed into art, language becomes an ornament. At that moment, lots of ambiguities and indistinctness’s, which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface.
His media artworks focus on the inability of communication which is used to visualize reality. The attempt of dialogue, the dissonance between form and content and the dysfunctions of language will be concentrated.
In short, the lacks of clear references are key elements in the work. By investigating language on a meta-level, he plays with the idea of the mortality of an artwork confronted with the power of a transitory appearance, which is, by being restricted in time, much more intense. Roland is also founder and director of the danubeVIDEOARTfestival and VOS|Roland Wegerer (http://vos.rolandwegerer.com)
