Combining painting, sculpture, installation, and set design, Philipp Fürhofer’s multidisciplinary artistic practice is a blend of modern materials, mixed with historical elements. After graduating from the Universität der Künste Berlin, Fürhofer spent months in hospital with heart issues, culminating in a partial transplant. Inspired by his own chest X-rays and their transparency, he created acrylic glass boxes filled with structured objects, giving them new forms and reality. Juxtaposing different layers of the works with spy mirror foil, he often uses incandescent light bulbs, LED tubes that switch on and off to reveal different visions.
