Wolfgang Lehrner is an Austrian artist. The observation and visualisation of local determined characteristics of cities, the spaces between them, and the resulting global transformability are inherent to Wolfgang Lehrner’s works. Cosmopolitan in his investigations, the artist responds to the change and the importance of seemingly insignificant similarities, as well as the opposition of urban areas, cities and their networking in the cultural, socio- economic, historical and metaphysical sense. Lehrner deliberately uses coincidence to determine the direction of aimless drifting, headed by the respective routes, squares, streets and places. The resulting cinematic portraits of everyday urban life essentially emerge from the search for the particular.
