Kai Lossgott. 2003. After purity. Still from installation. Video,
ceramic tiles, shower door.
Born to two sculptors in a small German Alpine village where by legend
the last dragon was slain, Kai Lossgott is the last male heir of an
almost extinct Czech peasant family. He spent his childhood locked in
a library, dodging Catholic nuns, rugby balls, and various other
incarnations of Fascism. He spent his teens at art school, making the
highly praised paintings and sculptures which now litter his parents
garage. Going to university is still a blur in his mind.
Kai is an award-winning independent film maker, freelance artist,
writer and lecturer in digital arts. He holds a Bjourn in television
journalism from Rhodes University, majoring in media studies and dance
theatre, and has an Advanced Diploma in Visual Art from UNISA.
