about this work

Peter Wächtler is known for creating mournful yet hubristic characters conjured from seemingly folkloric or fantastical settings. Always executed with a balanced dose of pathos and comedy, Wächtler’s characters narrativise the artist's investigation of subjecthood and objecthood. Recently working with etching for his 2019 solo exhibition at Bergen Kunsthall, Wächtler has utilised the medium to produce this edition.

about Peter Wächtler

Peter Wächtler works in a variety of media: bronze, ceramics, drawings and video. But in many ways "stories" could be described as his main artistic material. His works often evoke a narration, with animals or human figures in animated states. They are made in ways that use and adapt elements of fiction and folklore, relating to specific traditions and common tales, and materialize the ways of telling a story as much as the story itself.
