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.”

Shinobu Nemoto – Improvisations #1

An epic album by Japanese artist Shinobu Nemoto.

“These five extended pieces for effects plus guitar were all recorded without overdubs in a single take, but they certainly do not sound improvised.  Nemoto pushes his blurred, smoldering, post-shoegaze noise into simple but effective variations on a theme of the arcing crescendo.  It seems that he’s capturing loops as he goes, and stacks the harmonically rich layers of distortion, E-bow drones, and throttled rumbles into incrementally dense constructs.  At the height of each of each of his crescendos, Nemoto offers a restrained guitar solo, at times in impressionist form of a high-lonesome slide guitar.  Nemoto plays tour guide to an imaginary mountain range, taking his audience up to the pinnacle and providing grandiose views from that vantage point.”

5 Sticks

“‘Sayler’s art is based on both chance and precisions. It is located in elementals between line, surface and body, not only in the framework of limited pictures and objects, but also in situations related to space in which signs condense seemingly at random to a space-infringing installation. Exploiting the interrelationship of chance and regularity, he links the rational with the emotional. This emphatically emotional stance is pathbreaking; it opposes the one-sided, rationalist methods of the Concrete Art of recent decades, where so much is simply variation and duplication within limited contexts.” Paul Brand

Wim Wender's Pina Bausch Project

Pina

  • by Wim Wenders
  • 100 min, Digital 3D
  • Postproduction, to be completed 2010


NEUE ROAD MOVIES and TANZTHEATER WUPPERTAL PINA BAUSCH announce the commencement of pre-production on PINA, the first dance feature film to be shot in 3D.

Wenders said: “The two-dimensional cinema screen is just not capable of capturing Pina Bausch’s work, either emotionally or aesthetically. When I watched her dance for the first time twenty-five years ago, I was captivated and deeply moved. I was able to understand human movement, gestures and feelings in a whole new way. And this magic is what I would like to translate to the screen, working closely with Pina Bausch and her dancers. 3D gives us the possibility of taking the audience directly onto the stage, into the middle of the event.“
Producer Gian-Piero Ringel: “Only mainstream 3D films have been available so far, as this new format has been developed with commercial preferences. With PINA, we offer a highly artistic 3D film for the first time. “

Through the collaboration of Pina Bausch and Wim Wenders, along with the pioneer of European stereographie Alain Derobe, we will set a new benchmark for 3D.

Pina Bausch, artistic director of the TANZTHEATER WUPPERTAL PINA BAUSCH since 1973, has expanded and reformulated the language of dance with her innovative and unique choreography. Her work has become legendary and performances continue to sell out world-wide. Three dances are planned for PINA: CAFÉ MÜLLER (world premiere 1978), SACRE DU PRINTEMPS (world premiere 1975), VOLLMOND (world premiere 2006).
