Markus Selg has always taken the individual work as his point of departure. Working in a wide variety of media—paintings, sculptures, computer prints and more recently, moving images—his integration of spatial structures and custom-made lighting systems began to precipitate comprehensive installations at an early stage. The universal and eternally recurring motifs of human history and mythology—creation, fall, perdition and resurrection—play a central role in these scenarios.
Selg participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions including the 2009 Athens Biennal, ZKM, Karlsruhe, Kunsthalle, Germany, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Kölnischer Kunstverein, Daniel Hug, Los Angeles, Cabinet, London, Galerie Christian Nagel, Köln, Galerie Christine Mayer, München Kunstverein Braunschweig and Galerie Guido W. Baudach, Berlin. From 1996 to 2000 Markus Selg was part of the Akademie Isotrop, of which he was a founding member.
