Untitled (Chandigarh), 2013

Sculptor and photographer Werner Feiersinger (*1966 in Brixlegg, Tyrol) challenges the fractures and controversies caused by ambivalent objects and photographies which document what's already well-known. As a result of this process, he often points out surprising and unconventional perspectives. Feiersinger applies an accuracy in his photography which is matched by the meticulousness of his research and preparation work.

The edition is a framed photograph from his extensive series Chandigarh Redux. Chandigarh is Le Corbusier's planned city in Northern India. It is a peculiar place, not only because it has been conceived and constructed by one of the most influential architects of classical modernism, but also because in this place it was possible to implement the vision of Classical Modernism from scratch in all its consequence.

After studying at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the Jan van Eyck Maastricht Academy, he taught at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts de Lyon.
