The art of Louis Fleischauer is an invocation of primal energy as an answer to a sterilized, consumer friendly reality. Living within this artificial reality, we ‘civilized’ people have become disconnected from our true nature. Louis’ art seeks to reopen a channel to the Pristine Self within the mind of the beholder.
Mr. Fleischauer is a sculptor, and body-artist using organic materials such as animal hides, bones, flowers, blood, tears and his own skin. In his public rituals he turns humans into living sculptures and instruments, including his own body. Through a mix of agony and euphoria Louis falls into a state of trance. His sculptures are a reflection of this experience.
