Ina Loitzl

Ina Loitzl (born 1972 in Klagenfurt/Austria) studied graphic art and visual media at the Mozarteum Academy in Salzburg and later at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in a studio of visual media under prof. Peter Weibel. The author feels at home in various media including video, photography or costume design producing collages and various textile objects. Her work is in fact characterized by mixing media often combining rare materials and traditional techniques such as gold and embroidery or knitting with the mass-produced objects. Adapting the strategies of kitsch and holiday gifts the artist offers her own aesthetics. The result, however, is the work of art that is a far cry from a conventional, aesthetically pleasing work. Its message can be found in artist´s subtle social criticism that makes us confront the borders of tolerance. Mainly of our own.
