Canadian artist Zin Taylor, whose work is part of the exhibition Salon der Angst, will speak with Nicolaus Schafhausen about The Proposal of a Surface (Lichen Wall), his large-scale wall piece that features prominently in the exhibition. The talk will take place on location in the exhibition space.
The talk is part of the Vienna Art Week.
Zin Taylor has become known internationally for his elaborate installations encompassing elements of performance and sculpture along with drawing, printing, and video. Narration is an essential ingredient of much of Taylor’s multifaceted work, and his stories are often culled from the undergrowth of popular culture, especially underground music scenes and contemporary art lore. Storytelling itself, both on a literary as well as a theoretical level, is also a prominent feature in Taylor’s work; many of his installations have also been accompanied by texts or artist books.
