The exhibition Constantin Luser. Music Tames the Beast is a comprehensive solo show of the Austrian drawer and artist (*1976 in Graz, lives and works in Vienna). At the centre of the exhibition lies the idea of transforming drawing into the physically discernible world of space, consisting of haptics, sound and movement. Starting from five playable instrument-sculptures, the exhibition opens up the networked, associative, and narrative picture- and thought-world of Constantin Luser, which is able to give structures to life using the means of drawing and music.


Drawing is at the root of every artistic process undertaken by Luser. The drawings can be interpreted as geographical realisations of his thoughts. They are technically complex, with many layers made up of words, digits, symbols, and systems provided with abstract and figurative networks of lines which the artist makes grow into the three-dimensional space. They mutate into installations, sculptures, films and performances. For some years, music has played a larger role in Luser’s works on account of ist emotional immediacy – he designs ofer-dimensional, complicated instruments that are entwined in themselves tob e used by several musicians.


The exhibition is a drawen conceptual and ideational system made three-dimensional, with surreal, playful and interactive features. The personal thought-world of Luser is made solid in material that will be a central interactive element for exhibition visitors on account of ist accoustic properties, enabling it to be experienced in a visual, auditory and tactile way.
