In his cycle “The Inventor's House” the artist Herbert Nauderer refers to events in German history, current events, trauma and conspiracy theories, but also to documents from a private, fictionalized and enigmatic biography of the “inventor”.
The closer we get to this "inventor", the more he eludes a clear explanation and throws the viewer back on himself. We are confronted with existential questions.
Where do people find orientation these days? Is science helping or is it a threat? Is the “inventor” a creator in the religious sense? An artist? A reflection of ourselves? Or does it stand for a dark, incomprehensible power that threatens us.
The deeper the viewer immerses himself in this world, the more he is thrown back on questions of being human. "S E K T O R 29" represents a part of this cosmos, consisting of drawings, photo montages, documents, objects and video works and referring to an imaginary expedition.
Herbert Nauderer studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and is represented at international exhibitions and art fairs. Since 1995 he has a teaching position at the SHG Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
2016–2018 he owned a professorship for drawing at the University of Fine Arts at Braunschweig.
