Ant Farm, Pillow, 1970

“Ant Farm was established within the counter-cultural milieu of 1968 San Francisco by two architects, Chip Lord and Doug Michels, later joined by Curtis Schreier. Their work dealt with the intersection of architecture, design and media art, critiquing the North American culture of mass media and consumerism. Ant Farm produced works in a number of formats, including agitprop events, manifestos, videos, performances and installations…” more info

Maurizio Cattelan All, 2007
Installation view Kunsthaus Bregenz, 2nd floor Photo: Markus Tretter

“Contemporary Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan (b. 1960) is known for his witty embrace of semantic shifts that result from imaginative plays with materials, objects, and actions. In his work, contradictions in the space between what the artist describes as softness and perversity wage a sarcastic critique on political power structures, from notions of nationalism or the authorities of organized religion to the conceit of the museum and art history. Like the traditions established by Dada and Surrealism, his uncanny juxtapositions uproot stable understandings of the world around us…”  via  The Menil Collection

Cable links are usually associated with all kinds of mantages on site – which cables above ground and below, dealing with informention and energy transport. This installtion offers a sensuous experience in a nonverbal way, employing a commonly-used architecture material.

Presence and Absence

installation / 180 x 80 x 250 cm / wood, white coating
exhibition monastery malgarten / germany / 2008

“the installation is a room within a room – into a former cell  of the monastery malgarten we built in a second room made of wood and  paint. this second space causes to vanish the first one in the surrounding.
the installation contains literally nothing, it is all  about the pure room.
you realize that empty spaces are distances you have to traverse.

we are ongoing concentrated on themes such as emptiness, emptiness as mental space, space as place for retreat. a room was cleared out – what is left?
the work handles with the terms of presence and absence. what can you see and what will stay hidden?

the work is austere, both material and form. this decision was made  conscious. the installation isn´t narrative at first, this will allow  each spectator his very own interpretation, imagination. we would like to leave the work as ”open” as possible.”
