Hans Schabus, HAAANS, 2008 – 2009, Offset print on paper and magazines, print: 189 x 131 x 6 cm, framed.

Hans Schabus is known for his ambitious, site-specific projects in which he incorporates the location and the institution and often comments in a humorous way. “For Schabus, the institution is a medium through which it is possible to gain access to another reality, an epistemological threshold that heightens in the spectator the connection between the intellectual dimension and the physical space, or between the imaginary and experience,” writes curator Pablo Fanego.

The sculptural interventions by Schabus intermediate between himself and what surrounds him. His studio is his matrix, a place of exploration, processing and inspiration – a place of an “in-between” with its own temporality in which things undergo continuous change.
