Lars Preisser b. 1984 in Lindau (DE) is a multidisciplinary artist working in the disciplines of weaving, drawing and moving image. His projects often involve many years of making and intense artistic research resulting in concise formations of detailed drawings, machines, textiles and other mediums. These could be described as surreal re-configurations that relate current issues like gentrification, global warming, post-colonial contexts, hidden histories, lived experiences or industrial materials and machines that he is connected to through his own family and industrial heritage. Lars Preisser holds degrees in textile art (Bachelor of Visual Arts) from Otago Polytechnic School of Art Dunedin (Aotearoa/ NZ) and media art/ expanded cinema ( Diplom/ MA equivalent) at HGB Leipzig (DE). His work has been exhibited internationally at Blue Oyster Gallery Dunedin, Objectspace Auckland, Bauhaus Dessau, nGbK Berlin, Contextile 2022 contemporary textile art biennial among others. Lars Preisser grew up in Berlin (DE) and moved to Dunedin (NZ) for some years before returning to Berlin where he now works and lives.
