Departing Fields features tableaux of works on wood and paper made by Pföstl over the course of
thirty years. The artworks include vistas of departing lands—talismanic objects of silent hymns —
and works on paper from the early Hans Henny Jahnn and nerve garment drawings.
Herbert Pföstl (b. 1968, Graz, Austria) has been living in
America since 1990. He is co-author of To Die No More (2008); author of Light Issued Against Ruin
