The birdwoman vs. the Acephaly of the Man
In “The birdwoman vs. the Acephaly of the Man “, Alexandra Bolzer processes the surrealist philosophy of Peter Goricnik. The close cooperation with the Carinthian philosopher shaped by George Bataille created works of complex sensuality and condensed divergences.
Goricnik’s antithesis to Batailles’ “The Man Without a Head” explains the “non-power” of reason with the unusual theory “the enlightenment must enlighten itself”. His lusty birdwoman serves as an egalitarian, matriarchal social model.
Bolzer’s immediate access to Goricnik’s theses is expressed in powerful visuals. Her complex, timeless imagery creates relentless evidence of his philosophy.
