Paysages Vegan Libanais / On Lebanese Vegan Scapes

In this volume the reader is introduced to the Lebanese-inspired vegan fusion cuisine of artist and food designer Nabila Zein, who arranged vegan dishes and table compositions as miniatures of the oriental places they are related to, in their way of preparation and presentation. The table or dish landscapes in this present publication are the visually formed interpretation and expression of the culinary experience. There is a whole palette of various cultural sediments that resonate in our contemplation of such miniatures. These compositions – merging East Asian food ingredients, like soya, with typical Lebanese ones – emerge from natural landscapes and metamorphose, on the table, into a complex range of sensitive tensions and interactions between interior and exterior worlds reflecting, ultimately la convivialité et savoir vivre /.../

White Square DUBIUM

Guido Kucsko

DUBIUM

In DUBIUM - Seven attempts of an individual intellectual achievement, Guido Kucsko raises the question if there can be something pictorial or textually formulated that is not an original and individual intellectual creation? 

GK: /.../ I’m thinking of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s preface to the Tractatus. There he writes: “Indeed what I have here written makes no claim to novelty in points of detail; and therefore I give no sources, because it is indifferent to me whether what I have thought has already been thought before me by another.” Thus, in the prelude of his work he raised questions about originality and copy, about the uniqueness and authenticity of the work.

LG: How pertinent is the question of originality and novelty for you really? /.../.    Lucas Gehrmann, chief curator Kunsthalle Vienna in conversation with Guido Kucsko

Light studies of the Vienna Secession Building

/ ... /  Nei suoi ultimi cianotipi, Eva-Maria Raab ricollega le quattro facciate di questo palazzo - della Secessione Viennese, costruito nel 1897-98 in accordo con il progetto del discepolo di Otto Wagner, Josef Maria Olbrich - in un intreccio di relazioni multidimensionali con l’ambiente circostante, dove la natura sembra vicina e lontana allo stesso tempo. Vicini sono gli alberi e i ramoscelli che formando la loro ombra nel muro, delineano bassorilievi e sculture di piante stilizzate, lontana è la fonte di luce che non genera solo ombre, ma tutte le immagini raccolte in questa collezione /... /

KHM

INFINITE SCREEN – THE BABEL TOWER

A project by AROTIN & SERGHEI by in collaboration with the Kunsthistorische Museum, Vienna and Museum in Progress

With contributions by: Kaspar Muehlemann Hartl (ed), Sabine Haag, Gerfried Stocker, Karin Tissot

 

The installation by AROTIN & SERGHEI was presented as a large-scale image projection (1200 sq m) on the main façade of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna to mark the 125th anniversary of the museum. Hereby one of its most famous pictures, “The Tower of Babel” by Pieter Brueghel the Elder, was transformed into a rotating structure of light cells in continuous mutation with emerging details from masterpieces of the KHM collection.

AROTIN & SERGHEI composed a sound installation to accompany the endless circular movement. It contains various sounds and electronically manipulated themes from Bach, Wagner and Schubert’s later works and “Unfinished Symphony”, played on the piano by Mikahil Rudy and Alexander Arotin. Furthermore the artists included text fragments from Homer, Dante, Karl Kraus, Beckett and Wittgenstein, from the Mahabharata and from navigation systems. The project was initiated by museum in progress under the direction of the curator Kaspar Mühlemann Hartl. Earlier versions of “Infinite Screen” as a work in progress were shown at the Vienna Konzerthaus (2013), Ars Electronica Festival (2014) and La Biennale di Venezia (2015).

SOUND IMAGES . PAINTED SOUNDS
Post symposium

Contributions by Julia Logothetis, Bariaa Mourad, G . A. Fromm (eds.), Eugenia Alexaki, Antonios Antonipoulos, Maria-Dimitra Baveli, Thomas Gorbach, Dieter Kaufmann, Anestis Logothetis, Mike McInerney


/ ... / Logothetis did not limit himself to the two-dimensional surface of scores. Sound production in space was of great significance for him and he, as acousmatic composer, was actually visualizing his sounds and noises “in space." I would say this is seen even better in his sketches, than in the later-produced finished scores. Since 1974 he performed ‘multimedia operas’ and projected the graphical scores of the pieces corresponding to the performance onto the stage design. / ... /

Andres Ramirez Gaviria

A Line, However Short, Has An Infinite Number Of Points

With contributions by Quinn DuPont, Laura A. L. Wellen (University of Texas)

 

"These works reveal and critique the otherness of code, by order and perceived disorder, with microcontrollers, aerospace and hi-tech materials, strobes, sound performances, chopped and cut videos, printed text, and images. As with others, Gaviria’s work responds to, critiques, and embraces research and development from the mid-twentieth century. But what makes it so novel and compelling is that communication and information are often the formal subject of Gaviria’s works, yet rarely the method.  Instead, his work uses the multiple processes of transcription and transmission to expose hidden, now dominant, representational pathways. Andres Ramirez Gaviria seeks code at the interstices of language and thoughts, which lie „between form of representation and interpretation." Quinn DuPont

"A preposition, when used with a noun or pronoun, indicates direction, location, and time. To place alongside. Near, nearby, next to. In regard to, together with, toward. What I am about to write is about relationships between things. About, after, around, owing to. A line has an infinite numbers of points. The consideration here is how to connect some of them." Laura A. L. Wellen

Lost Strange Things: On not finding home

With contributions by: Rayya Badran, Bariaa Mourad & Najla Said

The book presentation for Lebanon took place at Art Factum Gallery Beirut in March 2015, and for Austria at: Kunsthaus Wien with a discussion between the editor, artist and the curator of Kunsthaus Vienna.

In The Cost for Love We Are Not Willing to Pay, the artist, writer and poet Etel Adnan relates her relationship with the many places she settled in. She relocated to California from Beirut, and in this exile she wrote: “during the first years there, I carried within me a feeling of a deep uprootedness”. (Also) Tanya Traboulsi’s photographs draw links between her two homes. / ... / (she) remains at a remove from her objects of affection. The characters portrayed in the artist’s portraits evoke an ambivalence in their postures, their gaze elusively facing outward. They stand and sit awkwardly as if to translate the juxtapositional nature of the portraits. We see the uprootedness evoked by Adnan in the stiffness of the postures / ... / Rayya Badran

/ ... / In her photographs, Tanya Traboulsi addresses that particular reflection based on her own intercultural history between Lebanon and Austria. Interculturalism, which featured both in historically monarchist Austria and still today in Lebanon, where various ethical realities claim the same region being at the same time a nation of emigrants, is negotiated in both countries in different ways. / ... /   Bariaa Mourad

QUANTUM CINEMA - A Digital Vision

With a foreword by Peter Weibel

This publication reports the results of the art research project Quantum Cinema - a digital vision, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the PEEK research program, hosted by the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, 2010-2013.


Quantum Cinema (QC) denotes artistic research by means of digital art combined with scientific expertise following the claim for a coherent picture of the quantum world. A new digital 3D animated geometry based on the Penrose Pattern as a 2D cross-section of 5-dimensional space was developed  for the visualisation of hitherto abstract higher dimensional mathematical concepts describing quantum phenomena.

The book shows the artistically processed infinite dimensional space built from iterating elements of the 5-dimensional space: It exhibits the boundary shape of the dodecahedron embedded with kaleidoscopic symmetries of Henri Poincaré's homology sphere which echoes Plato‘s world of ideas.

Quantum Cinema tries to reunite art and science through a coherent picture of the Quantum World, approaching it by geometric means as an item of art – notably digital new-media art. Via the advantage of digital 3D animation, the partly "imaginary world" of complex number systems - by means of space-animation - becomes virtually “real” and thus, visually accessible, while the realms of time, light, and higher dimensional spaces, habited by supposed particles, become mentally accessible.

In Between Space

Eva Petrič. IN-between-SPACE

The musical experience (on CD-Booklet) - of the audio-visual-installation IN-between-SPACE at the Museum of Modern Art, Klagenfurt - Austria.

Collective Heart & Love, Belief, Hope - are extensions of the audio-visual installation and were shown in the nave of Vienna's Stephansdom (May 3, 2016 - Sep. 11, 2016).

 

In the Burgkapelle, Eva Petrič stages a multimedial work based on an ESA photograph of the space telescope "Hubble", depicting newly emerged stars and star constellations. Petrič replicates this specific stellar formation, by sewing countless little doilies together into large textile shapes and stretching them across the chapel like a backdrop. Additionally, there is a soundscape with NASA recordings of sounds from outer space, the artist's singing and music by her and Matija Strniša, together with photographic projections which transform the room into an interactive, evocative structure. The chapel as a spiritual setting oversteps the boundaries of its former purpose. The existential questions, so pressing in the spiritual context are raised in an extended discourse, outside the religious framework, which combines the big bang theory and the theological myth of Creation /.../

Nella Burgkapelle Eva Petrič installa un lavoro multimediale, basato su una foto dell’ESA proveniente dal telescopio spaziale „Hubble“ e rappresentante nuove stelle e costellazioni. L’artista riproduce questa particolare formazione astrale, cucendo insieme innumerevoli centrini di pizzo e dando vita a grandi elementi di stoffa con forma propria, che vengono poi appesi a creare uno scenario. A ciò si aggiungono lo sfondo sonoro, con registrazioni di rumori spaziali della NASA, il canto dell’artista e la musica suonata da lei e da Matija Strniša nonché proiezioni fotografiche, che trasformano lo spazio della cappella in un atmosferico tessuto interattivo ed evocativo. L’ambiente, pregno d’immaginario spirituale, fuoriesce così dagli argini limitanti della sua precedente destinazione. I quesiti esistenziali di fondo, percepiti come ag- gressione all’interno del contesto spirituale, vengono posti in un discorso ampliato, al di là della cornice religiosa, in cui la teoria del big bang ed il mito teologico della creazione riescono a fondersi /.../

Gregor Eldarb

Several Models Put Together

With contributions by: František Kowolowski & Georg Schollhammer (ed. springerin)

The book presentation took place at the Frederick Kiesler Foundation Vienna, March 21, 2015 / Matinée at 11 am

Speech: Peter Bogner (Director)

 

Structural models based on urbanistic ideas, architectures and theories make up an essential part of the work of Gregor Eldarb. He develops hypothetical spaces and forms referencing the constructivist models of the early twentieth century’s classical avant-gardes. His work can be thought of as an on-going conversation with the ideas underlying both real and utopian concepts of the cityscape. Through drawings, objects and videos he explores his surroundings, ranging from his own apartment to various cities, countries and landscapes, all of which find their respective counterparts in his models. / ... /

American scientist and fluxus-artist Bern Porter and his fellow American, poet-painter Kenneth Patchen, are two further major reference points in Eldarb’s stimulating dialogue with certain affiliations within the historical avant-gardes. / ... /

Gregor Eldarb’s more recent work testifies to an increased interest in the print media. In it, he refers to a system of forms, modes of presentation and concepts, enabling the viewer to draw comparisons and redefine the meanings underlying art, space and mind. / ... /   František Kowolowski

Stoyanov's Tomato Products

A project developed at the MAK Center for Art & Architecture, Los Angeles.

Published in partnership with the University of Applied Arts, Vienna & MAK Center, Los Angeles

 

" ... I was interested in the idea of working on something which takes time and where I cannot control the speed of how it is proceeding. It was the idea to handle a banal work in a different way. Besides that I adore the tomatoes in all their different kinds, especially the Bulgarian ones. You know what I am talking about ... " Kamen Stoyanov

Soup stopped being “just soup” in 1962, when Andy Warhol showcased for the first time his “portraits” of the Campbell’s tomato soup in the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. today even in the grocer’s around the corner, the legendary little box is much more Warhol’s than Campbell’s, as it holds,  a preserved state, a real revolution in our interaction with art. Exactly 50 years later Kamen Stoyanov planted, in the yard of Schindler House in Los Angeles, the tomato seeds he had brought from Bulgaria /... /   Kamen Stoyanov

Invisible Forces / Invisible Cities

A project developed at the Tongji University ShanghaiCollege of Architecture and Urban Planning / CAUP and the Technical University Vienna / TU Wien

 

Shanghai, the metropolis of Eastern Asia is subject of this publication. It aims to enhance identity within Shanghai, regarding its increasing spatial and social segregation, by means of the revival of rituals, and by proposing two dynamic evolving cultural infrastructures, which are adaptable in the ever-changing society of this expanding metropolis. These structures are visible outcomes of invisible forces, which have been used as parameters for their development, and subsequent evolution.

Invisible Forces I Invisible Cities is to establish the importance and variety of rituals in human society, both generally, and within China, as well as their relationship with cultural landscapes, places of tribute, of social memory and private recollection, which reaffirm the relations between the invisible spiritual and the visible material worlds.

TIME NO TIME

by Parallel Media (Hofstetter Kurt & Barbara Doser)

Experimental video - limited artists edition

Video-Installation première at Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum, Studiogalerie, Innsbruck.

 

TIME NO TIME polarizes moving pictures in terms of speed, time and experience through parallelism and circulation. The enstatics versus the exstatics of movement and their experience of time becomes the theme. The event horizon is defined by the use of both – the “X tense imaging”, and the “video feedback” technologies. Thus the time of the experience and the experience of time face each other.
