Elke Krystufek's work is highly controversial. She is entrenched in the idiosyncratic struggle between sex, art and money. Her work warns that when a portion of the triad breaks down the remnants are left to fend for themselves. When communication lines are severed new words arise to bridge the gap. The thoughtful determination of these relevant idioms delineates the path to growth.
Krustufek eloquently reminds us, "We need to talk again." Working 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 using popular culture with a personal sexual iconography.
