Link: Landscape Acquired: A Dialogue with Scott Patrick WienerBIO
Wiener (b. 1977 Baltimore, MD) spent his early life traveling from one military base to another, never spending more than four years in one place at a time. The work he makes is a direct result of an impossible attempt to hold onto time and place to stabilize it. He proceeds accordingly by using lens-based media to produce image-based installations that reinforce the depicted past as experiences in the present.
He studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (BFA, 2001), the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA, 2007), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Class of 2010) and a completed a 2009-10 DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Scholarship for Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. Most recently, he participated in group exhibitions at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, NYC and the Mills Gallery at the Boston Center for the Arts. Other exhibitions include curatorial project entitled All Our Tomorrows and Yesterdays at Proof Gallery in Boston (November 9December 14, 2013) a group exhibition of the same name at Kunstverein Weiden in Germany (OctoberNovember 2012), and a solo show at 92Y Weill Gallery entitled The Luxury of Distance (MarchMay 2012). His work has been profiled and reviewed in Temporary Land Bridge, Hyperallergic, Big Red & Shiny, ARTnews, The Boston Globe, TimeOut Chicago and Paper & Carriage. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
