‘Commingling reality and illusion, authenticity and artifice, barbarism and civility, Olaf Breuning creates photographs, films, sculptures, and installations that draw heavily from popular culture and a collective visual iconography. He combines these contemporary aesthetics with more primal shared drives: violence, sexuality, ritual, and companionship. The divergent impulses collide, often with absurd and hilarious results, as Breuning exploits the thin line between humor and pain.’ 2008 Whitney Museum of American Art

Olaf Breuning’s website has an extensive overview of the Swiss-born artist’s photographs, films, sculptures, and installations: www.olafbreuning.com
