am I already an image?

Based on the model of the poetic potential of the “normal” and “coincidental”, Heinz Cibulka uses his pictorial poems to look for the power that resides in that which is “not special”. He finds this again and again in his immediate surroundings: the rural culture of Lower Austria—his adopted home for almost five decades. He creates a wide range of “picture poems” from the mid-1970s, before concentrating on digital image collages from the mid-1990s. The artist traces people and their lives, culture and tradition, rural vocations and religious rites. His personal quest for answers is also a reflection on life itself, on becoming and passing away, on love and sexuality, birth and death. “Geschichtes Gedicht” (“Story’s poem”) is central to the exhibition.

Featuring texts by Hanno Millesi, the digital image collage from the year 2000 provides a visual insight into the Austrian cultural and intellectual history of the first half of the 20th century. It is shown in a new manner and also features an augmented reality extension by the media artist and— now—co-creator of the piece, Bobby Rajesh Malhotra.
