Johannes Wohnseifer

Untitled

2002
Acrylic on aluminium

140 x 100cm

In Untitled, Wohnseifer’s portrait shifts uncertainly between charming artistic sketch and police composite drawing. Labelled “Acquired directly from the artist”, Wohnseifer writes himself into the narrative as co-conspirator, idle bystander, trauma groupie. Through documenting the aesthetics of cultural anxiety, Wohnseifer’s media-style images become unwittingly self-validating.
