    Cover Story at Modern Painters
    »The audience is the vital ingredient for Fürhofer’s illusionism: We must move our bodies in space to feel the shifting dimensions within his artworks, to see the painted image incorporated with our own environment, to witness our own image being sucked into the world before us«

    Review in Artforum International
    by Jurriaan Benschop
    »Fürhofer’s boxes are triumphs of illusionism, of ingenuous visual staging. His assemblages allow him to combine various textures and to relate these spatially – in this he has surely been informed by his work as a set designer for the opera.«
  • [dis]connect
    Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt
    The installation was created specifically for the Schirn Rotunda, transforming the circular architecture of the building into an illusionary space. Two spatial situations alternate in a regular, pulse-like rhythm, reflecting the play between the viewers perception and their notion of reality.
