Louis Fleischauer was born in Leipzig, Eastern Germany where he frequently had to deal with harassment by the authorities for his forms of self-expression. After the Fall of the Wall he moved to Berlin and started working with leather and experimenting with sounds, Body Art and mutated forms of Aktionism.
In 1993 he moved to the US.
1996 started his Project AMF, performing at events such as Burning Man, various galleries, art festivals, clubs, warehouses and guerrilla performances on various beaches and Blvds.
1998 was the first time Louis used his body as sound-source with the help of hooks.
2007 first time Showing his work in Japan (Vanilla Gallery)
2008 he moved back to Berlin.
The art of Louis Fleischauer is an invocation of primal energy as an answer to a sterilized, consumer friendly reality shaped by a mass media to bread one homogenized people. Living within an artificial reality we 'civilized' people have become disconnected from our true nature. Louis' art seeks to reopen a channel to the Pristine Self within the mind of the beholder.
Mr. Fleischauer is a sculptor, and body-artist using organic materials such as animal hides, bones, flowers, blood and his own skin. In his public rituals he turns humans into living sculptures and instruments, including his own body. Through a mix of agony and euphoria Louis falls into a state of trance. His sculptures are a reflection of this experience.
