Mario Asef’s Statements and Beschreibungen (Descriptions) investigate linguistic constructions of reality in the form of sentences and diagrams. Referencing Lacan’s and Wittgenstein’s conceptions of reality, language is used as an instrument that determines the interdependency of subject-context, but which also makes the reconfiguring of this relationship possible. Mario Asef’s Raumprothesen (Spatial Prosthetics) portray the attempt to transform the classical function of the architectural model into an ideographical conception of space, which, in turn, describes architecture as a social economic system. In every case the interaction between public and artwork is fragile and controversial since the interdependency of subject and object is not definable in wholesale fashion. Such aspects underscore the irony that informs the artist’s overall body of work.
