The exhibition Protagonists shows his paintings and sculptures, which are characterized by unusual perspectives, extreme light effects and exact shapes. Loewit breaks the traditional en face or profile view and shows the protagonist from the back side. He renounces the face and tests whether this is required to embody the type. The works are in close dialogue with the current image of society, playing with moments of irritation and questioning expectations and visual experiences.
Georg Loewit (1959, Innsbruck) studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and art education at the University Mozarteum Salzburg. His works are represented in important collections and have been showcased in over 100 national and international exhibitions. In 2019 he will take part in the Venice Biennale.
