Profile image of Manfred KielnhoferTime guardians

Cloaked in concrete-like or otherwise putrid variegated cloth, Manfred Kielnhofer`s "time guardians" seem to be plotting against time or maybe avidly watching time television- is that a medieval joke or what? Like conspiratory monks in a deathless desultory demeanor, they exude an ominous lack of life as if in a ghost parade freshly arisen from the depths of the Artpark crypt. They blatantly stand here, gnarled and unfazed, making time. Are we lost in a movie, "Lord of the ring"- wise or is it a gathering of the Adams family in...

'timeguards' by Manfred Kielnhofer
Description: Hooded Aliens from Another Dimension Control Your Every Move

1000 years ago, guardians of time were a part of every advanced civilization. These hooded visitors from another realm were deemed responsible for myriad disappearances, damnations, and behavioral changes in entire groups of people. Scientists and students of the paranormal alike studied them in great depth, but found out nothing. Over time, interest died out, as did credibility, and people stopped thinking about them. At least so the story goes?
Today, Austrian artist Manfred Kielhnhofer forces us to rethink the existence of these real-life grim reapers with his surreal depictions of them. Were they the first aliens to ever land on earth? Messengers sent back in history from the present to teach the ancient man how to create the future?
Whatever they are, the images of them are stunning. Images by Manfred Kielnhofer

'the guardians of time on worldtournee' by Manfred Kielnhofer
Description: TimeGuards /SpiritGuards / Trent Gilliss, Online Editor

Figurative sculpture installations take on new meaning within the context of location. Art of the highest human form. Manfred Kielnhofer?s sculptures accomplish this task. The transitory nature of the work remind me of Antony Gormley?s public sculptures, especially his ?Another Place? series of a 200 craggy, metal figures on the ocean beach.
But, the Austrian artist?s work conjure up a more ethereal, mystical quality. They?re shrouded in mystery calling out their ancestors and their progeny. When the viewer looks from particular angles, they become diaphanous, almost soulless ? like the ring-wraiths, the Nazgul, from The Lord of the Rings or even a rougher-hewn predecessor in Prague.
Even the introductory paragraph of the Austrian artist?s site reads like the opening to an ancient future, calling on the Druids of Stonehenge and the crusaders of Everquest or the worlds of Myst:
In the ages of the ancient advanced civilizations the presence of the Guardians of Time was recognized with respect, reverence and humility. Over the millennia a new mystery was formed and only a few chosen ones, like high priests, spiritual masters and shamans were granted to study it. They were the ones that got a deeper insight in the secret of THE TIME GUARDIANS. The beings were referred to as visitors from other systems, protectors or destroyers and even gods.
