Stefan Gunnesch studied Communication Design and works mainly as a book designer and illustrator. Daemonien is a book project gathering overpainted photographs, collages and acryl on paper. The pictures show explorations of the body and the ego. The striking photographs reveal posturing bodies and portraits, but were alienated by radical interventions that made the motifs fragmented and partly illegible. The process of overpainting becomes an egotistical appropriation of the images and questions a new (visual) identity.
14 of the images have become part of an artist book, published in a limited edition. The artist’s book is published in a limited (numbered and signed) edition by edition bildschriftlich, requests at email@example.com. It is also represented by the gallery ›Druck & Buch‹ (Vienna) and will be shown on upcoming book fairs.
