Heart being carried by two men

The unknown Gironcoli

The Carinthian artist Bruno Gironcoli (1936-2010) is mainly known for his large-scale sculptures. Within them, archetypal figures and the trivial are blended into futuristic-looking conglomerates. However, Gironcoli's sculptural practice was always accompanied by graphic works. From the very beginning, these often large-scale sheets were more than mere sketches for sculptures. On paper, Gironcoli drove his spatial ideas into dimensions that went far beyond the work on the material in question. His works on paper were “surfaces of considerations” (quote by Gironcoli), in which sculptural possibilities were played through that would not have been possible in the real space.

The major retrospective at the mumok focuses on the painter and drawer Gironcoli for the first time. Works on paper from the 1960s to the 1990s are shown alongside outstanding examples of wire sculptures, polyester objects, installations and monumental sculptures.
