Hans Schabus has acquired great notoriety in the art world due, above all, to the series of specific projects undertaken in very diferent palces and characterised by a performative approach to these contrasting contexts, incorporating multiple elements that were associated with the architecture itself and with its surroundings.
The Space of Conflict seeks to examine the multiple unevennesses that caracterise Schabus’ personal search and lead him form the studio to the situation, and then back to the studio again. A double movement in which the strategies of distancing and fictionality – with references that are not always explicit and range from Brancusi to Bas jan Ader, from H.David Thoreau to the country figure of the “ramblin man” – are at least as important as the data that bring us closer to what we call reality.
