Since yesterday I know the creator of these „transdanubian“ sculpture with the silver alien babies in front of the DC tower. Bruno Gironcoli. An Austrian artist who passed away at the age of 73 and who was up to mischief as a sculptor.
Shy at Work is the title of the exhibition dedicated to Gironcoli. It takes place since February until end of May at the mumok. And in the courtyard of the MQ where you can also find some sculptures. Rampant futuristic objects in gold, silver or bronze.
I found the trained blacksmith’s art irritating. Most of the sculptures look like oversized sex toys and were originally created on paper. With metal powder paint and India ink. More than just designs. Many paintings were born this way. With fucking dogs, baboons and turned men.
