Thanks to the Cynetart festival for presenting the Vibrator in an amazing and large space of Festspielhaus Hellerau. Special thanks to Thomas Dumke for the well-done organization and Endre Ketzel for the phenomenally designed exhibition.
Operative Performances at LEAP, Berlin 2011
I was invited to participate in Operative Performances at LEAP, Berlin, and had a great time working with Daniel Franke on the piece. The performative part was done by Brina Stinehelfer and Francesca Romana Ciardi. The event was organized by the We Are Chop Chop collective. Special thanks to Daniel Franke, John McKiernan, and Kai Kreuzmüller.
A black screen is hung on the wall – or is it actually a canvas? It shines and reflects and one can almost look through it. One might think of Malevich’s black square, positioned in our white cube. Malevich’s masterpiece was hung on the top of a ceiling’s corner facing slightly downwards to the audience, a style which was reserved for russian icons only. If the viewer moves close to the installation, it starts to move, making the screen bend in the upper center. The observer’s eyes can’t focus anymore and the idea of looking at/into something is broken. The emerging image is more a result of movement and less of shapes. Literally having a thin line between human and machine – digital evolution is alter the world, and it is impossible for the individual to keep step with it. Being both present and somewhat unknown, we follow our digital icon of today.
