Bodo Korsig is a multi media artist who works in a variety of media including painting, installation, photography, video, stage design and printmaking. His work has always explored the relationship between art and social connections, and he has additionally collaborated with writers, actors, dancers and visual artists. For about twenty years the main theme of Korsig’s work has been to model human behavior under extreme conditions such as fear, violence, pressure or death. In this he is especially intrigued by the neurological and cognitive processes that are difficult to record purely scientifically. His aim is to provoke a new perception of the processes at the interface of biological determination and human consciousness. Through biological figure, metaphysical symbol, and the crystalisation of the spoken word, Korsig’s exhibition at SRISA Gallery continues to explore his interest in creating a new pictorial language regarding the expression of brain functions in human awareness.
Bodo Korsig was born in Zwickau, Germany in 1962. He studied sculpture at FWG Berlin and now lives in New York and Trier. Korsig has exhibited In over 100 Museums and Galleries extensively nationally and internationally including Leonardimuseum Dresden (Germany), Fukumitsu Art Museum, (Japan), Smart Museum of Art Chicaco (USA), Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck, (Deutschland) and ZKM Karlsruhe (Germany).
