#44 & #50

“…these single pieces and series often operate between artistic action and the everyday life, between poetic and context specific intervention and highly compatible entertainment on a mass media basis.” Stefan Riebel

Stefan Riebel lives and works in Berlin and Leipzig, Germany.

Artist’s statement
I almost exclusively work in series in the field of space-related performance and conceptual art. I thereby focus on a non-expressive way to deal with information, statements and descriptions and furthermore I try to develop interactive and model-like open structures, processes and concepts. For my research, and without any restrictions, I try to use all kinds of media in an often playful and self-referential way. All of my works deal with very basic questions, for instance: what art could be? How something turns into art? What sort of significance art could have? How the relation between art and its audience might be? … These single pieces and series often operate between artistic action and the everyday life, between poetic and context specific intervention and highly compatible entertainment on a mass media basis. besides questioning the basic parameters of the arts I am interested in unfolding very individual and complex situations based on very simple interactions the beholder usually takes a main role in.
