Pirmin Blum’s art is equally at home in different media. As well as video, the artist, whose background is in painting and digital media, uses objects and spatial installations as his preferred means of artistic expression. Philosophical and psychoanalytical ideas serve Blum as points of reference in his largely conceptual approach. Performances enable him to make his three-dimensional, intuitive images even more accessible.

At TRIENNALE LINZ the artist is responsible for the Annexe Room. Separate from the rest of the exhibition and draped in black plastic foil, this room is tantamount to a »negation of space« (Anne Katrin Feßler). This manipulated White Cube serves as the site for the presentation of two installations. »Not I« is a sculpture consisting of three machine-guns arranged to form a pyramid and topped by a wig and a couple of eggs. A nest destined to be destroyed in an imminent explosion? A threat to one’s native country? The installation »Man as an inverted plant« consists of bed frames hanging from the ceiling, their slatted bases supporting upside-down trees with their roots pointing towards the ceiling. The tree symbolism here refers to humankind, who, according to Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophical teachings, are to be considered as the opposite of plants due to the downward orientation of their sexual organs.
