8. Markus Leitsch - Furr

In his installations, Austrian artist Markus Leitsch is dealing with the mutual transformation and dependence of human being and technology, the desire for perfection and immortality we project on technology, as well as the monstrosities, resulting from it.

Markus Leitsch used often skin in its artworks and regarding this material as casing protection, exchange and captivity appear in an ambivalent relationship. The two male hide figures are self-portraits of the artist reproducing the mould of his body and which he uses as a “Suit” or second skin.
