Manfred Kielnhofer
Manfred Kielnhofer * January 28, 1967 in Haslach an der Mühl; is an Austrian painter, sculptor, designer and photographer. Life Kielnhofer visited the technical College Linz, where he took his final exam in 1995. He engaged in technique and design and art on building. This lead him to his special way/style of art. Since 2000 he has been living as a free/an independent artist in Linz. In 2005 he launched the Gallery Artpark in Linz. Work Manfred Kielnhofer’s „Timeguards“ are the the result/highlights of a development lasting several years. Dealing with room concepts, sculptures and installations on one hand, and being engaged with mystic experiences and religion on the other hand, lead the artist to these strange characters. The first of these figures was created in 2006. It reminds us of a walking monk, who seems to be lost in something. Kielnhofer puts his timeguard in public places like/such as ancient castles, old mines, main squares or parks. Kielnhofer’s „Timeguards“ come and go; nobody knows where they will appear the next time. They never let us forget that we are always being watched. (Critics, by Martina Gansterer). In 2009 Kielnhofer developed a new sort of nude photography. This involved building a water plate in his studio, where he can take photos of models sitting or lying like on a mirror. In 2010 he developed the concept of the Light Art Biennale Austria 2010, together with Martina Schettina. The Interlux-Chair, Kielnhofer’s artwork shown at the biennial, was registered in the design-database of the MAK, the Museum for applied arts in Vienna. http://kielnhofer.com http://timeguards.com http://kielnhofer.at http://kielnhofer.at/blog/ http://fotopark.at http://artpark.at http://contemporary-art.at http://lightart-biennale.com http://www.facebook.com/manfred.kielnhofer http://twitter.com/artbeyondlimits http://at.linkedin.com/in/contemporaryart http://gplus.to/contemporaryartdesign http://www.youtube.com/user/kielnhofer
