    About The Work

    Over the course of almost sixty years, Christian Ludwig Attersee has created a multifaceted oeuvre with a unique visual language. From his Würfel-BH to his Prothesenalphabet, from his wine label to the Attersee sausage, from his postage stamp to the Attersee house, the Viennese artist has turned his name into his trademark and ‘atterseeised’ his world. Pop, humour and irony characterise his work, which draws on the subjects of his life like weather, sailing, nature, music and language. Issues of beauty and eroticism likewise permeate Attersee’s entire oeuvre.

    The exhibition Feuerstelle, at the Belvedere 21 from 1 February to 18 August 2019, shows all facets of Attersee’s oeuvre, focusing particularly on the first twenty years of his creative career. The subject of the edition, chosen by the artist himself, is also in keeping with this focus. For the Belvedere 21 Christian Ludwig Attersee has selected a colour print based on a collage of his early works. The original work, from 1966 and entitled Torte mit Speisekugeln und Speiseblau (Backe, backe Kuchen), was made during his time in Berlin in 1965/66. Gnawing hunger was his constant companion there, which led him to a visual appeasement through collages of food imagery.
