Alfred Hrdlicka, Mozart
Alfred Hrdlicka - The fact that Alfred Hrdlicka is presenting Mozart in the Mozart year is more chance than intention; after all, the sculptor, graphic artist and painter has been working with personalities from the theatre and music world for decades. It is always his aim to transcend the compositional area with brush or pencil towards the human, the hedonistic, the dramatic. Alfred Hrdlicka doesn't explore human beings where they are smartened up and ready to put their offical side on show. He waits for them where they drop their masks and show their true faces. Then he strikes! 140 times Mozart: passionate, erotic, despairing, realistic, polemical, analytical and always very musical.
