Paul Renner

Short Biography

Born in 1957, Paul Renner lives in the Bregenz Forest, Austria and in Piedmont, Italy.

His creative work is based on art as a synaesthetic perception The approach is anarchic, subversive, and experimental, and is aimed at the idea of ??an all-embracing art form. Exhibition projects culminate in theatrical soirées in which the various genres of art go hand in hand with fine-dining. The work is intended to be a social act and takes place in temporary cooperative productions with other artists, in addition to the involvement of the audience.

In hindsight, three events from his youth impressed Renner to such an extent that this became the search for and definition of an extended concept of art. In 1973 a performance of Tadeusz Kantor's Cricot 2 Theatre in Edinburgh; in 1976 a concert by the Sun Ra Arkestra in New York; and in the same year the 53rd performance of Hermann Nitsch's Orgies Mysteries Theatre in Milan.
