Kaws

Erweiterter Urlaub
Erweiterter Urlaub demonstrierte das enorme Potenzial der AR-Technologie, die virtuelle Perspektiven auf reale Umgebungen bietet und den schelmischen Humor von KAWS durch das Nebeneinander von physischer und virtueller Welt vermittelt. Diese virtuellen Skulpturen waren über die Acute Art App zugänglich und konnten in Verbindung mit der exklusiven Ausstellung KAWS: Kameradschaft im Zeitalter der Einsamkeit des NGV, einer umfassenden Übersicht über 25 Jahre KAWS-Werk und seiner bislang größten Einzelumfrage, erlebt werden. Voller Humor, Hoffnung und Menschlichkeit zeigte die Ausstellung mehr als 100 Werke, darunter ikonische Gemälde, die Popkulturfiguren neuere großformatige, geschichtete Werke und eine beeindruckende Sammlung der berühmten Skulpturenfiguren von KAWS wiedergeben.

« Scenario » de Merce Cunningham
Rei Kawakubo’s humorous costumes toy with the idea of physical distortions, such as humps and big rear ends. They are in mostly vertical blue stripes on white, or in pale green and white-checkered patterns. For much of the dance, five or six dancers twist and pose, each in his or her own space, with a rush of additional dancers to the stage toward the end of the performance. The bold electronic musical score is by Takehisa Kosugi.

Möbius Ship

The ambitious and imaginative structure of Hawkinson’s sculpture offers an uncanny visual metaphor for Melville’s epic tale, which is often considered the ultimate American novel. Möbius Ship also humorously refers to the mathematical concept of the Möbius Strip. Named after a nineteenth-century astronomer and mathematician, the Möbius Strip is a surface that has only one side, and exists as a continuous curve. Its simple yet complex spatial configuration presents a visual puzzle that parallels Hawkinson’s transformation of the mundane materials into something unexpected.

Roy Andersson

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
A sense of depression is reflected in his reluctance to use close-ups or camera movement, yet Andersson has quite an eye for beautiful set-ups even within the restrictions he’s given himself. His sense of humor is deadpan and misanthropic yet humanist. Andersson’s dour wit isn’t far from Louie. A Pigeon Sat On a Branch Reflecting On Existence expects the worst from the human race but holds out a slim hope for the best.

Untitled Door and Door Frame
Robert Gober’s work focuses around the themes of sexuality, relationships, religion, politics and nature. Working mostly in sculpture, surprisingly Gober doesn’t use found objects as a part of his work, but recreates these found objects himself and handcrafts them in his studios. Objects such as sinks, doors, cribs, chairs and body parts feature heavily in his work but yet all meticulously handmade. All the objects and installations in which Gober creates have a certain humorous element to them be it the half body that sticks out from the wall or the sink that has legs coming out of it.

Levitate

Levitate is a humorous new media interpretation of gravity, the last scientific fetter of humankind. Dozens of serenely levitating balls suddenly float up and dance as your mind resonates with them.

Death Death Death
File Festival
“Death Death Death” is book written by an algorithm. It utilizes a word association study conducted by the University of South Florida between 1976 and 1998. It contains over 10,000 words and their associations to each other. “Death Death Death” traces a path from each word to the word death. The book starts off with the words most closely associated to death. The beginning reads like this: Life – Death Funeral – Death Coffin – Death. Later, it takes several associative leaps to get to death: Enthusiasm – Spirit – Soul – Death Folly – Funny – Sad – Death Bahamas – Paradise – Heaven – Death Waggle – Wiggle – Worm – Maggot – Death. Reading soon becomes humorous, as every line reads like a joke-death is always the punchline. “Death Death Death” is 405 pages, contains an index so you can find any word, and a detailed description of the algorithm. Death Death Death was nominated for the 2010 File Prix Lux in the Digital Languages category.

He was at the van guard of 1960s Conceptualism, working primarily in printmaking, sculpture, and installations.

Martin Kersels

Tumble Room
Mr. Kersels was born in Los Angeles and attended UCLA for both his undergraduate and graduate educations, receiving a BA in art in 1984 and an MFA in 1995. His body of work ranges from the collaborative performances with the group SHRIMPS (1984-1993) to large-scale sculptures such as Tumble Room (2001). His interest in machines, entropy, sound, and dissolution has produced work that examines the dynamic tension between failure and success, the individual and the group, and the thin line between humor and misfortune.

SAMSTAG (Samstag) ist der Tag von LUCIFER, der Tag des Todes (und der Auferstehung), sowie die Nacht des Übergangs zum LICHT. LUZIFER’S ABSCHIED, die “Farewell” -Szene von SAMSTAG, findet in der Kirche sowohl im Innen- als auch im Außenhof statt. Ein Männerchor in zwei Spalten um das Publikum intoniert den „Franziskus von Assisi“ „Lodi delle Virtù“ (Hymne an die Tugenden). LUCIFER unterbricht als „Diabolical Wind Player“, der Posaune spielt, abrupt das Verfahren und verursacht Chaos. Schließlich kommt ein Sack vom Himmel (gefüllt mit Kokosnüssen) an. Die Männer feilen draußen und lassen einen wilden Vogel frei. Dann bewegen sie sich zu einer Steinplatte und beginnen, Kokosnüsse darauf zu zerschlagen (Albrecht Moritz bemerkt in seiner ausgezeichneten Rezension, dass dieses Element von Stockhausens Erfahrungen bei einem religiösen Festival in Kataragama in Ceylon inspiriert wurde). Schließlich gehen sie in einer Prozession mit humorvollen Tanzschritten und intonieren die „Hymne an die Tugenden…“.

Six Mil Antennas
SIX MIL ANTENNAS is a 360 degree immersive film that employs a range of visual and audio codes to bring a surrealist perspective to the forefront. Framing shifting communication processes in a fictional setting, the whimsical, open-ended work re-imagines different states of the world in a futuristic timeframe. Through a series of events, the piece alternates its tone between deconstructed gravity, aesthetic sensuality and satirical humor. Inserting filmed actors in faux designed landscapes, the film creates non-linear narratives of a personal, social and political nature and expresses a complex intertwining multiverse, in which the characters and abstract landscapes evolve.
