Conny Maier with new works on display at Galerie Eva Presenhuber
In recent years, the body has reappeared in painting and sculpture to a greater extent—and now signals a new artistic self-understanding that negotiates questions of gender, identity, and assignment in a completely new way. The artists embody a new, permeable generation that considers representation in new, often haunting, and visually demanding ways. There is often a startling fragility behind it. It captivates the gaze and opens up the view of the body—its freedom, fantasies, and fluidity.
