Kay Walkowiak (*1980 in Salzburg) lives and works in Vienna. His work comprises a complex mixture of installation, sculpture, video art and photography and combines conceptual and post minimal strategies. In many of his works the artist explores the historically and socio-culturally defined handling of form and questions its functional positioning as a projection surface for timeless utopias.
He studied Sculpture and Multimedia at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, Photography and Video Art at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Expanded Expression at the Zokei University in Tokyo. Kay Walkowiak has participated in various international group exhibitions since 2004, most recently at the HMKV (Hartware MedienKunstVerein) in Dortmund, in 2017. Solo exhibitions include the MAK – Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, the Soulangh Art Space in Tainan, the Austrian Cultural Forum in New Delhi and the Node Gallery in Tokyo.
His work is also featured at the Vienna Biennale and the Lahore Biennale in Pakistan this year.
