The practice of Florian Bach focuses on social violence. He decrypts situations or issues that have complex political repercussions. His work is dealing with paradoxal questions like, on one hand, political existence, militant implication, demission, rejection; on the other hand, forces driving to exile, uprooting, domination, loss and destruction. Those references reveal the ambiguity related to various tools and materials he uses. The ambivalent functions of such objects and situations are being scrutinized: the gas cylinder, the ax, the rope, now for domestic use, now for violence. He confronts spectators with structures that often reject them. His installations are also crafted through a performative practice.
As a light designer Florian Bach collaborates and produces conceptual lights for performative and stage works. Light is for him a sculptural material. A special attention to light conceived as one dispositive is given. He is interested in the computerized writing of sequences. He refers to compositions systems used in concrete music, like synchro- and de-synchronization.
