Artist Statement/ アーティストステイトメント

Following her ceramic education Petra Lindenbauer graduated from the Vienna University in European History of Art and Classical Archaeology. In her ceramic work she reflects these studies in relation to the significance of ceramic objects in everyday life. The basic approach is her admiration of the functionality that can be inherent in ceramic items. The fact that we have been surrounding ourselves with ceramics for thousands of years as part of our everyday life or that we still choose ceramics for special occasions in our lives is remarkable and fascinating to her. In her artwork it`s not her aim to create a superficially pleasing object, but rather to make the inherent energy of an object perceptible. During the working process Petra tries to challenge the material in such a way that it contributes of itself, so it is a kind of constructive cooperation between her ideas and skills on the one hand and the dynamism of clay on the other hand. Clay is incredibly strong-willed and she wants to support this ability. She adores simplicity and a reduced formal language and gladly allows an influence of East Asian to her European artistic form.

Petra Lindenbauer has worked as a freelance artist for more than 25 years. She has participated in numerous international symposia, exhibitions and ceramics workshops (South Korea, China, Austria,Turkey, Spain, France,…)
