Antoine Wagner


ATEM is a dramatic stage work that with the help of video projections tells a story which is loosely based on the Parsifal legend. This ‘Enhanced Symphonic Experience’ lasting about 90 minutes combines video, sound, opera, live orchestra and piano, song,
dance and sculpture. The epic Alpine landscapes were filmed mostly in Tyrol, the chosen home of the Franco-American artist.
Antoine Wagner is a multi-disciplined artist who is equally at home in the field of photography, video art and sculpture as well as in performance and installation. His works encompass themes such as music, mythology as well as romanticism by means of a pictorial language inspired by nature. He is the greatgreat-grandson of Richard Wagner and the great-great-great-grandson
of Franz Liszt. Antoine Wagner’s most recent work Impossible Forest will play a central role in ATEM. It deals with a ‘global, collaborative arts project with the intention of creating awareness for the preservation of nature.’
