Elke Krystufek

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elke Krystufek (b. Austria, 1970) is a contemporary Austrian artist who creates self portraiture in a variety of media.

Krystufek studied at the Fine Arts Academy of Vienna in the early 1990s. Her work is informed by a history of Austrian artists - from Egon Schiele to the Vienna Actionists - who have explicitly explored sexuality in art.

Krystufek works across a variety of performative media including photographs, videos, paintings, and mannequin installations. Her work often involves issues of narcissism and self-censorship in the audience, by fusing popular culture with a personal sexual iconography.

In 2000 one of her self-portrait masturbation video art works was cited in a French court case that eventually led to the gallery curators concerned being brought before the courts in December 2006.
