Overview

The Austrian artist Heimo Zobernig is regarded internationally as one of the most important inheritors of the Conceptual Art legacy. Traversing a broad range of media, Zobernig's work playfully continues the reductivist program of Modernism, in the process exploding its many myths and misconceptions. In recent years Zobernig has closely engaged the Minimal-Conceptual work of the renowned Australian conceptual artist Ian Burn), critically extending Burn's 1965 ‘updating' of Mondrian, rethinking his use of mirror, and, along the way, extending debates regarding Art & Language history.
