Gerold Tagwerker (* 1965 in Feldkirch, lives in Vienna) is playing on familiar territory in Hamburg. His works have previously been shown in the Sammlung Falckenberg/Phoenix Art, at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof as well as in various solo and group exhibitions held by the artfinder Galerie in Hamburg.

Grids, mirrors, glass and light are recurrent motifs in Gerold Tagwerker’s work. For his sculptures and installations the artist employs materials that now almost ubiquitously belong to the basic stock of modern architecture: fluorescent tubes, mirrored glass, galvanized grating or prefabricated panel cladding. In the form of large-format black-and-white photographs of modernist façades from the 1950s to the 1970s, architecture itself stands in the focus of his investigations. Yet however minimalist Tagwerker’s formal vocabulary might appear to be, it is concerned above all with the conditions that shape contemporary urbanity.
