Hannes Mlenek

“I am aware that the large format is my power; there I have an entirely free rein in a physical sense.” (Hannes Mlenek)  

Hannes Mlenek’s new book is an impressive feat – thanks to its format and the fact that this is the first collection of his performance-based projects. The artist moved into one of Vienna’s “Prater studios” in 2016. The large, multistory space is ideal for presenting his large-format pieces and for developing performance-based projects such as the current interdisciplinary “Project ARCHE” in and around his studio or “Medusa*Expedit” and “Medusa*ODE,” a painting performance by the artist in 2015 and 2016 in Vienna. In addition to his installation-based projects, the publication features Mlenek’s latest works.
