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.

OBOM (Diane Obomsawin) has parallel careers as a renowned graphic novelist and animator. In both film and print, she creates characters that inhabit a funny offbeat world, a gently absurd universe filled with tenderness. She has published books with the Canadian publishing houses L'Oie de Cravan and Drawn & Quarterly. Her most recent animated short film "I Like Girls", won the Grand Prize at the Ottawa International Animation Film Festival in 2016 and was shown at Tricky Women Festival in 2017.
On invitation of KABINETT, Obom is Artist-in-Residence in MQ in July 2017. Her exhibition and booklet "Busy Nights" - three stories based on Obom's dream diary, will be shown in KABINETT as of 11 July 2017. Obom will held a lecture on her unique work as illustrator, graphic novelist and filmmaker on July 20, 2017.
