Oberweissenbach 38, Feldbach, Austria
was founded by Eva Pichler (*1981) and Gerhard Pichler (*1980) as an artist duo in 2006 in Graz and is active both in classical exhibition settings and in public space. Alongside site-specific installations, objects and videos, their work involves the development of ideas realised as art in public space or in the form of unannounced interventions. This goes beyond the various interests and principal themes of the education of both protagonists (art, art history, architecture and philosophy).

The story of a city is always a story about people intervening personally, about taking part in our surroundings and in its various manifestations: We ask questions but we do not ask for permission: we position statements, translate and reinterpret situations and surfaces with our actions.

Working as a duo in public spaces integrating the overlapping fields of art and architecture for us it is also a story about scraping off surfaces, of exposing both: facts and fiction. It is an aspiration about being artistic, social and political at the same time in creating subtle, temporary and invasive statements. We see our work as a reaction, as a comment to different realities we find within cities and societies – as we don’t want to dedicate all issues of public space to those who have money, to those who invest their capital. All too often we leave the design of public space up to those who inscribe their slogans across the numerous advertising surfaces, who project their products, events and feel-good templates onto anything they can use. This should not be tolerated - at least as far as we are concerned. And it is also a story about cracking the relations between principal and agent by not having any contracts: creating, commentating and reinterpreting as a matter of course.
