About

Kovitz is an Austrian artist working in the United States for the last decade. His work uses the visceral aspects of non-traditional materials to look at iconic imagery of borders, violence and identity. Since 1999 he has been assembling these narrative fragments into a super installation of 670 pieces. Recent exhibitions include Sunset:Delayed (collaboration with Andrea Lenardin) at the MAK in Vienna, solos shows in Los Angeles and Munich and inclusion in the First International Roaming Biennial of Tehran. Winter 2010 he took his project to an ice fishing hut in the Nova Scotia wilderness. Since 2011 Kovitz shares his time between Los Angeles and Lebanon where he teaches Fine Arts at the American University in Beirut as Assitant Professor.
