18 Aug exhibition ‘transfluxxion’
As part of the celebration of their 25th anniversary the art school Kunstschule Zinnober initiated the art exhibition transfluxxion. To express the diverse activities and numerous collaborations of the school, the gallery space was transformed into a spatial installation. Inspired by the concept of the social sculpure by Joseph Beuys, the visitor was invited to participate in – and become a part of the ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’.
In the space, completely decorated in white, different work stations with were build up, where the visitor could ‘fill the room with colour’ by taking part in one of the join-in activities. My interactive installation ‘transluxion’ was one of them. When entering the gallery, the visitors were filmed by a webcam. After a short moment, they could see their own silhouettes projected on a wall on the other side of the room.
I also presented my new work ‘luminous flux’ in the exhibition. The minimalistic video is projected on a curtain which hangs lengthways from the ceiling. When stepping behind the curtain, the viewer can expand the depiction of light and shadow by adding his own shadow plays. The visuals in the video also make a reference to another installation work, a huge crocheted net which spans over the exhibition space.
Here are some pictures of the exhibition:
