ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
In my work, I deal with the scope for maneuvering we humans have. I am particularly interested in public space, be it physical-urban space, media or virtual space. It is a place of negotiation where all parts of a society come together and have to continually decide on the nature of their coexistence.
Based on everyday things and phenomena, I try to create moments that interrupt normal processes. Recorded on film, the actions and interventions are presented later. In search of the poetry of everyday life, this way of working is not just a way for me to sharpen my sense for opportunities. It allows me to interact with the world in an independent way and to actively question it.
Michael Heindl's work will be presented during the INTERTONALE week. We will announce the place and time well in advance
