As a central contribution to the "MQ Summer of Sounds", “Connecting Sound Etc. Cable Works, Cable Sounds, Cables Everywhere” is the first exhibition explicitly dedicated to the theme of cables in art. Works by more than forty international artists offer an insight into the wide range of contemporary approaches to what would seem to be a simple material. Often reduced to their pure functionality, artistic trends of recent years have elevated our appreciation of cables. Curated by Georg Weckwerth, this interdisciplinary show at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL opens on June 4 at 19:00 with a pre-opening; a press preview of the exhibition and the outdoor and satellite installations takes place earlier the same day at 10:00.
Site-specific cable interventions, sound and light installations, mixed media and video installations, visual art, photographs, and contextual works offer an insight into the breadth of artistic interpretation and experientially demonstrate how cables function as “connecting” elements and conductors of light, sound, movement, data streams, and so on. Classic examples of cable-based art are juxtaposed with contemporary works in the disciplines of visual art, sound art, and media art and presented in the exhibition at freiraum as well as on Electric Avenue and in public space at the MQ. The result will create potentials for consciously extreme, synaesthetic experiences that are ultimately meant to inspire a formal aesthetic investigation of present-day art.

Split Screen Probe
Exhibition in the SCHAURAUM Angewandte
Opening: Thu, Jan 12, 19:00
Venue: SCHAURAUM Angewandte
The double projection Split Screen consists of a hat-game, running simultaneously with three nutshells, where a pea is hidden under one of the shells, and a 3-D projection with anaglyphs (red/green) shows a woman cracking nuts and a man spooning pea soup.
The installation Split Screen Probe breaks this work down into its individual components, based on the raw material of practicing a fixed pattern of moving three nuts. To enable this to recur on film, a formulistic sequence is required to always guarantee the same path for the nut with the pea. Despite all fragmentations, simplifications and slowdowns - asynchrony creeps in, causing confusion in the final cross-cutting. The algorithm yields to imprecision, with surprising results.

Since 1993, they have collaborated in the realm of photography, film, video, installations, texts. Their themes are often biographical, experienced or seen shapes, or in the form of finds in science, culture, the media. Their focus lies along the fringes of different media.
