Hrvoje Hiršl

Hrvoje Hiršl (born 1982) is an Artist and a Designer from Croatia who graduated Visual Communication Design, currently enrolled in post-graduate studies in Media Art Histories at Donau-Universität Krems, in Austria.

His art projects are at the crossing of contemporary art and media art discourse. His main themes are: materiality of an object, the energy that it emits into space and the limitations of the medium. He tries to deconstruct the art object and to disseminate it to its primary parts.

His work is not restricted to single media and it encompasses: sound installations, video installations, interactive installations, prints, etc. In his work he often refers to the works of others and to different physical and philosophical concepts, which he uses as a fabric for constructing his own environment.

In 2012 nominated for Radoslav Putar Award for the best Croatian artist under 35. Recipient of the Artists in Residence 2012 (Kulturkontakt, Austria) and TRIBE Residency 2013 (MOTA - Museum of Art transitory, Ljubljana; CIANT, Prague, BIS, Istanbul; Artos Foundation, Nicosia). In 2012 invited to participate in Documenta (13), Kassel, Germany, as part of the AND AND AND program. Nominated for the T-HT award 2012 and on the occasion of T-HT awards 2013 he is one of five artists personally invited by the jury. He is the founder of I’MM_ Media Lab in Zagreb.
