For Markus Guschelbauer, the landscape is a reference point and a backdrop for his photographic interventions and stage settings. Guschelbauer’s photographs ‘are imbued with a continually reactivating, obsessive urge to find oneself within the ambit of one’s personal background, one’s own identity and its place in an apparently indefinable and dreamlike natural landscape’ (Christian Siekmeier). With conceptual verve he succeeds time and again in showcasing temporary ‘plays’ on his ‘landscape stage’ using everyday materials such as plastic sheets, rags, mirrors, and wooden slats. Through the meticulous artistic act of the photographic process, they form into autonomous pictorial works and eternal witnesses of a magical play. Markus Guschelbauer’s work monograph offers an insight into an original work that ranges at the interface between photography, sculpture, performance, and land art.
