Truth Is the Invention of a Liar
The first publication for this young Austrian artist, this exhibition catalog combines reproductions and installation photos of his innovative and exciting sculptural works and installations. Sandbichler once lived in Tokyo and became fascinated with the way that origami both breaks open and conceals space. One of the artist’s series of origami-pleated works is made out of pages from the highbrow German newspaper Die Zeit, which have been folded into a herringbone pattern that shrinks the printed matter into contour aesthetics. Other pieces use elements of virtuoso craftsmanship, like a portrait made of wood milled in a complicated procedure. A wonderful introduction to an artist on his way to more recognition.
