Boris Steiner graduated from HKU Utrecht last year and is currently studying a Master of Fine Arts at Sint-Lukas Brussels. In his work, the interaction with the audience and the use of a stage play a major role. The stage functions as a platform for his process-oriented approach, in which action, play, failure, and proclamation form the body of the work.
Boris Steiner: “I’m exploring how an artist and his audience relate. By building installations that involve multiple media, such as drawing, sculpture, performance and video, I try to reveal the ever-shifting hierarchy between the artwork, its creator and the viewer. During my performance on the opening night, I invite my audience to take a position on the Tekenpodium. The monumental drawing that arises from this happening is an ode to the observer.”www.borissteiner.nl
