Josef Fischnaller: Prächtig

May 13-31, 2019 / London , United Kingdom


Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present an exhibition of new works by the Austrian artist Josef Fischnaller. Fischnaller’s artfully constructed photographs are inspired by the compositional styles of Old Master and Renaissance painters; to these, he incorporates modern clothes, products and affectations, such as playmobil models and body piercings, to give them a wry, contemporary twist.

Entitled, Prächtig – a German word meaning magnificent – Cadogan Contemporary’s exhibition features two series, Renaissance and Flowers, both created between 2009 and 2019, in which Fischnaller exhibits other works inspired by Renaissance paintings such as, Bacchus (2009), a take on Caravaggio’s self-portrait Young Sick Bacchus (c. 1593).
