ANGELIKA LODERER

Angelika Loderers work is refering to the basic research of form and space. She uses fragile, everyday materials that are derived from the vocabulary of domesticity and combine them with sort of traditional sculptural techniques. In the process the play between chance and control defines the aesthetics of her work. The experimenting with attidudes – via a very specific amalgam of materials, shapes and objects- brings forth a new, metaphysical result. “In transience, fragility and decline, I see the formal expressions to which I refer in my designs, and which to some extent provide the framework conditions for my processoriented work. From the abundance on offer, however fragile and vulnerable in composition, the elements fall into place, becoming worthless once again when dismantled.”

Lucky Storm
This is one part of a three-part installation that alters the spaces of the gallery with elements derived from American romantic landscape painting, especially the pre-photographic interpretation of landscape found in Thomas Cole’s paintings and those of the Hudson River School painters. Nature is frequently presented as a fantastic amalgam of real detail and impossible phenomena, not observed but reinvented for the purpose of allegorical narrative.

Android Couture

Presented on the cusp of the new millennium, Alexander McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 1999 collection for famed French fashion house Givenchy captured the new fascination with personalized digital technology in popular culture. At the culmination of the show, two models appeared outfitted in molded Perspex bodices studded with flashing LED lights and glowing leggings patterned like computer chips. The creation of a digital aesthetic and its intimate application to the body—an android-like amalgamation of the physical and digital—anticipated the “wearables” trend and the formation of the digital self. Known for his exquisite tailoring, meticulous detailing, and ambitious collections, McQueen also represented one of the remaining visionaries of haute couture extravagance.

Parasitic endeavours
El problema de manipular el cuerpo humano está en el asco. Si coges cabezas y torsos y los unes en una amalgama gelatinosa, obtienes un vídeo de Simon Christoph Krenn. Crea bodegones horripilantes, partes de cuerpos que se funden unas con otras, monstruos complejos a los que aplica nuevas fuerzas de la gravedad hasta que rebotan y toman el carácter de la viscosidad, parecen hechos de goma.

Lost In My Life

Consumismo delirante? L’arte è il miglior modo per ingannarlo. Fra i tanti esempi di artisti che si stanno affacciando nel mondo dell’arte del riciclaggio ce n’è uno in particolare: Rachel Perry Welty. Le opere di questa artista straordinaria è di assemblaggio tra essere umano e riciclaggio, contornando ed amalgamando la persona di ricevute, etichette adesive, fil di ferro plastificati, ma anche scarti virtuali quali aggiornamenti di Facebook, e-mail indesiderate, registrazioni di messaggi sbagliati in segreteria e chi ne ha più ne metta. Insomma, riciclo a 360°.

Maxime Guyon & Benoît Jeannet

Guyons’ still life photography is his strongest and most explored work, where graphics, media art, and digital manipulation are all amalgamated to create striking and realised pieces. Evidentially each aspect of his work is measured and deliberate– that’s not to say though that spontaneity isn’t an element of his process.

CARBONIFEROUS table

Carboniferous is a table that cuts through space, definite and strong.Its many layers of black surface together create a shape, a crystallization of a quick movement, crushing, leading the eye towards the future.The honeycomb cardboard, covered with fiber glass and resin is finished off with layers of carbon fiber.The carbon fiber composes and traces the design, the movement into its unique strength.
In Carboniferous you get the feeling that the top surface does not necessarily represent the ideal landing platform.On another perspective the landing surface generates the powerful and matherical base.
Carboniferous is flowing and exploding, like an aggressive wind with a clear direction.As the earth below, coal is extracted into a new form, the result of sediment build-up of plants,
and also the secrecy and conspiracy of the Carbonari, from underground and from the depth of their hiding places,which emerges a few decades later into the tricolore (the three colours of the Italian flag).
Coal, a dense network of plant remains, and Italy, a mix of cultures and different latitudes.Italian amalgam of different origins, Italy particle edges, Italy multiform, Italy tangle of angles,Italy blunt, concave and convex, Italy Alpine wedge, Italy coal.Sediment of a combustion that melted and transfigured particles.

Oracle

Oracle is an amalgam of concepts tied together by the common thread of the user interface.To that end, it is a reflection of AI and UI as they exist in society’s consciousness: On first glance masculine, cold and austere; yet muted in its austerity and restrained by a warmth that is undeniably feminine.
