STIFFNESS seems simple at first glance but is a cunning undertaking fluctuating between narcissism and self-demolition. In his hyped sequences of movements Sackl produces something that is also like slapstick—relentlessly making fun of (mainly his own) conceptualism, with a dead serious face, sarcastically reproducing the old joke about the avant-garde as a masturbation technique of brazen and unfounded artists. (Stefan Grissemann)
