Simona Reisch - Urban Utopia


Simona Reisch was born in 1985 in Vienna. In the years 2005 to 2007 she studied art history and architecture at the Technical University and in 2006 and 2007 photography at the School of Art Photography in Vienna. In 2013 she graduated from the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. Since 2005 he has regularly exhibited in group and solo exhibitions. Her works have been published in many publications. In 2015, she had a scholarship from the Austrian Ministry of Culture.

Urban Utopia is a result of her perennial study and work, inspired by architecture and modern urban structures. The artist takes pictures of them on the ground composing them later in the technique of cake, most commonly in the form of a two-dimensional image, but where other materials are used, she reaches also into the third dimension. New buildings, towers from the most modern materials, but also the ruins emerge in the motifs. These newly assembled scenes of utopic architecture can act as if gravity does not work.
