Andreas Brunner (b. 1988 in Zurich, Switzerland) works within the field of Contemporary Art and is currently based in Reykjavik. He studied fine arts at Lucerne University of Applied Science and Arts and did his postgraduate studies at the Iceland University of the Arts, graduating in 2018. His artistic practice gravitates around concepts referring to cultural development and their performative aspect of meaning creation process.
The disconnection of metaphoric meaning and the creation of reason through dynamic conjunction rather than connections can be seen as an overall motive in his research.
