Speaker: Florian Pumhoesl (I Tatti)

The marshland is an eerie, multi-layered situation, a place where human-made and natural orders intersect. In the drawings that I create during my stay at I Tatti, I try to approach this landscape, which is so frequent in Italian geography and depict it using the possibilities of abstraction and graphic notation. The resulting works, mostly drawn with red chalk on small-format papers, are imaginations and interpretations of the spatial orders and temporal events in the swamp area. In my presentation I will show the complete series chronologically and talk about the graphic themes, my understanding of drawing along with historical and modern references that accompanied me.

Florian Pumhoesl is a visual artist based in Vienna, Austria and Munich, Germany. Since 2018 he has served as Chair of sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich (AdBK München). His reliefs, paintings, films, and installations were part of international festival exhibitions, including documenta 12, the São Paulo Biennial, the Venice Biennale and the Yokohama Triennale. Recent exhibitions were held at Galerie Buchholz in Berlin, at Miguel Abreu Gallery in New York and at the Schindler House, Los Angeles.
