Artist bio:

Right from the start, Bernhard Vierling's artistic research revolved around the depiction and development of inner and collective processes: in drawing, notation, sculpture, performance, cartography or systemic art action and has evolved from participatory-performative art projects to installative, alchemical experimental arrangements, as well as neo-scientific lecture performances. The series of essence devices form a synthesis of these lines of investigation. They open up a complex space of experience that incorporates different schools of thought and experimentation – including radical constructivism, pragmatism, resorting to alchemy – and allows a third to emerge.
