Georg Salner's works are based on analog and digital, manually and industrially manufactured, found and selfmade materials.
They are to be understood as an analytical expansion of painting and the practical results of a differentiation of the artistic
principle of easel painting. For his exhibition "SU.SY" at the MAK Gallery Georg Salner will incorporate the structure of
the room with its dominant longitudinal wall as a basic parameter of his work. The essential intention of his spatial concept
is the exploration of this rectangular wall by a modular matrix consisting of many parts and the functional balancing of the
room by additional design interventions. The Austrian artist defines the projected space as a "laboratory" for processing
different paradoxical moments between picture, object, space and viewer.
