Gernot Wieland, (b.1968, Horn, Austria), studied at the Universität der Künste, Berlin and Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Vienna. Drawing, video, and lecture performance, these are the predominant devices Gernot uses to subtly voice the complexities of living in our secular society. Through scribbly line, grainy film, and absurd presences, Gernot composes the narratives of his works by blending various rag-tag fragment into complex accounts where the personal alludes to the socio-historic and the socio-historic to the personal.
