  • "Hidden Target" by Werner Pfeiffer

Pfeiffer's work is steeped in Surrealism and Dadaism, his pieces often reflecting the blur between reality and the imagination. He likes his work to "play a coy game of hide-and-seek with illusion and reality." Pfeiffer also tries to connote the act of reading in a more dynamic way, producing what he calls Book-Objects. These pieces are hands-on and interactive, urging the viewer to get involved in deconstructing and reassembling them. "My work is part game, part readings, part artistic expression," he explains.
