Adrian Lohmüller’s practice spans a variety of media including video, film, site-specific interventions and performative events in public space. Much of his work plays with the borders of legality and requires him to attain an air of legitimacy by adopting the guises of construction worker, plumber, cleaning personnel, waiter, etc. According to these mimicries a flexible position can be found within institutional systems to encourage the de-automatization of habitual patterns. At the same time, subtle insertions of nonsensical components rupture this mimetic approach to prevent it from becoming a complacent, fail-safe methodology. Such interruptions incite hesitation in those who look closely, but without compromising the superficial appearance of authority established within the actions/artworks.
