BIO Monika Grabuschnigg (b. 1987, Austria) completed her M.A. in Fine Arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, and studied as an exchange student at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and in Santiago at the Universidad Católica de Chile.

Grabuschnigg focuses in her artistic practice on the feeling of acceleration in an increasingly augmented, anxiety-inducing and commercialized alienating environment. Her work investigates, fragments, and reassembles cultural phenomenons: (technological) symbols are distorted and reconstructed into new narratives, the evidence of searching for an epistemology in a contemporary world in which our physical desires and guiding beliefs are directed and dictated by malign algorithms.

The primary source of Grabuschnigg’s art practice is clay and she consciously uses the tactility that this material transfers; precisely because her works deal with the dialectics of analog and virtual realities. The materiality of clay as a contradiction to a digital age, which is dedicated to the smooth and perfect.

In 2018 Grabuschnigg was an awardee of the Berlin Art Prize and in 2016 she received the young artist award from the Federal State Government of Vorarlberg, Austria. Her works have been collected in the State Museum Vorarlberg, the Federal Artothek in Vienna, and the Graphic Collection of the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
