Christian Ruschitzka (*1962) is a conceptual artist whose work is deeply involved in the practical materiality of the world. He uses a variety of media from handmade tools to built machinery, video performances and public interventions to explore a number of different artistic positions.
“Ruschitzka is an Examiner of Reality. Sculpture is, for him, often merely a catalyst for perception or a means to irritate. He is concerned with the appearance of everyday objects: in order to get to the bottom of things, so to speak, he extricates them from their meaning and sets them at odds with their original purpose”
-Gerald Bast, former Rector of the University of Applied Arts, Vienna
