Johannes Girardoni

Johannes Girar­doni is an Austrian-born, American-based sculp­tor and instal­la­tion artist whose inquiry comes out of a long-standing prac­tice of cre­at­ing work with nat­ural and organic mate­r­ial, where detri­tus from urban and archi­tec­tural set­tings, such as found wood, forms the struc­tural basis for sculp­tures with pig­mented wax. This work can be described as rad­i­cally non-technological and cre­ates a spa­tial and struc­tural set up which relies solely on the inter­ac­tion of light and mate­r­ial. After spend­ing time in West Africa in 2008 on a research expe­di­tion with sci­en­tists and a group of archi­tec­ture col­leagues, Girardoni's focus shifted into a crit­i­cal inquiry of con­tem­po­rary cul­ture. His recent projects span from photo-based works that blur the line between vir­tual and mate­r­ial con­tent, to elab­o­rate projects which re-articulate sculp­ture as archi­tec­ture and immerse view­ers in envi­ron­ments that inte­grate nat­ural phe­nom­ena and dig­i­tal infor­ma­tion in sub­ver­sive ways. Girardoni pre­sent­ed an inter­ac­tive light and sound instal­la­tion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 and his work can be found in the collections at the Fogg Art Museum, Boston; the Lud­wig Museum, Ger­many, and the Pro­gres­sive Art Col­lec­tion, Cleveland. His first solo exhibition at Tomlinson Kong Contemporary opened January 2012.
