Born in Innsbruck in 1959 Peter Kogler is recognised today as one of the most important protagonists of contemporary Austrian art.
Since 1984, using motifs drawn from the human brain, the globe, ants and tubes he has developed installations of multilayered artefacts – rampantly appearing over walls, floors and ceilings, creating walk- through labyrinths. More than virtually any other modern day artist he has thus formulated precise scenarios for our increasingly dominated world of data lines and electronic communication.
The work of art in the Giants Park has as its central theme two of Peter Kogler’s most characteristic base elements – the human brain and the globe. He very subtly makes apparent the link between both, which are not dissimilar in form. The intern structure and complexity of both elements exemplify the immensity and inconceivability of space and time.
