Patrick Topitschnig

 

Patrick Topitschnig is a Vienna based filmmaker and audio artist and also collaborates on theatre projects.

 

After he finished his studies in Commercial Information Technology he studied Intermedia Art and Narrative Film in Vienna and Berlin under the likes of Bernhard Leitner, Erwin Wurm, Constanze Ruhm and Thomas Arslan. For his diploma in 2012 he produced the experimental video “Right to Hospitality”.

 

He received several awards, such as the Fred Adelmueller Grant and the Ursula Blickle Preis for his video "Concision of the Whole" (2007) ("Zerschneidung des Ganzen").

 

In 2013 he was granted the STARTstipendium for video and media art (Austrian Federal Ministry for Culture and Arts).

 

He works primarily with video and sound, often within installative contexts. His works center on direct physical experience and immediate reception of time, as well as on enduring and measuring the passing of time on a visual or on an acoustic basis. Permanent repetitions or continuous oscillations constitute a recurrent theme.
