Nadim Vardag

How do media image productions work, what structural and compositional principles do they follow and how are our perceptions dependent on illusion and reality? These questions are posed by Nadim Vardag (born 1980 in Regensburg, lives and works in Vienna) when he analyzes recurrent patterns and basic structures of film and cinema production and divorces them from their plot contests. Vardag is interested in the constructions and mechanisms of affect generation, imitates them in models and experimental orders, explores them in drawings, and installationally or -sculpturally formulated objects.

Nadim Vardag had solo shows for example at the Wiels Project Room Brussels, Strabag Kunstforum, Vienna (2016), Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2012), Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna (2012, 2006), Kunstverein Medienturm Graz (2011), Augarten Contemporary, Belvedere, Vienna (2010) and took part in group shows held at the Gesellschaft für Kunst und Gestaltung, Bonn (2018), the 21er Haus, Vienna (2017), the MAK Schindler House Los Angeles (2016), Kunsthalle Vienna (2015, 2010), MUMOK, Vienna (2013, 2012), Georg Kargl Permanent, Vienna (2009), Künstlerhaus, Stuttgart (2008) and the Generali Foundation, Vienna (2006).

In recent years he participated in several artist-in-residence-programs in Paris (2017), Los Angeles (2016), Brussels and New York City (2015).
