In his recent work Nikolaus Gansterer stages a three channel video installation which combines elements of animated film, cartoon films, live drawings, performance, and studio work.The hypnotic flow of images – like a maelstrom generates a dynamic spatial structure formedby poetical efficacies that dissolves the boundaries between the inner and outside world, between night and day, and unveils deeper layers of perception. »untertagüberbau« is both model and ruin, a non-place and utopia – a drifting ground full of references and connotations.
