Gregor Eldarb畢業於Academy of Fine Art Vienna,現創作、居住於奧地利,客座教授於捷克。受當代建築評論家 Anthony Vidler的城市空間論述影響極深,創作多元包括繪畫、雕塑、紙本等,表述都市空間如一個社會現象,空間與社會相互依存。於歐洲擁有豐富展出經驗,2007年受邀為俄羅斯聖彼得堡國際機場創作。作品獲奧地利聯邦教育、藝術與文化部、維也納市政府文化局、奧地利瑞福森國際銀行、維也納阿爾貝蒂娜博物館、羅馬國立二十一世紀藝術博物館、威尼斯奎利尼.斯坦帕里亞基金會⋯等永久收藏。

Eldarb的創作多元,涵蓋繪畫、書籍與裝置,皆建立於建築結構之上,以理性的圖像與線條表達他對於都市建築、空間反思與想像。Eldarb 以大尺幅的黑色背景為底,在反覆重疊的線性描繪中、形成多視角的空間圖像,看似探索空間的過程,其實也在發掘都市規劃所構造的微型社會。都市建築不僅侷限於外在形體,而是對於整個社會、人類生活情感及心理認知的影響。透過Eldarb作品,帶領觀者去感知空間、詮釋空間性的多元面向。

Gregor Eldarb is a Vienna based artist. His work has been exhibited in Europe widely for the last ten years, and his work can be found in many public and private art collections, including Austrian Federal Ministry for Education the Arts and Culture, Department for Cultural Affairs of the City of Vienna, Raiffeisen Bank, Albertina in Vienna, MAXXI in Rome and Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice. 

 

Structural models based on urbanistic ideas, architectures and theories make up an essential part of the work of Eldarb. He develops hypothetical spaces and forms referencing the constructivist models of the early twentieth century’s classical avant-gardes. His work can be thought of as an on-going conversation with the ideas underlying both real and utopian concepts of the cityscape. Through his artworks, he explores his surroundings, ranging from his own apartment to various cities, countries and landscapes, all of which find their respective counterparts in his models. Eldarb aims for a process-oriented analysis of space and form. The specific aesthetics of the technical drawing, the blueprint, playfully suggest the plans’ feasibility.

Gregor Eldarb’s more recent work testifies to an increased interest in the print media. In it, he refers to a system of forms, modes of presentation and concepts, enabling the viewer to draw comparisons and redefine the meanings underlying art, space and mind.
