"Dive and Run" is the paradoxical title of a multimedia art exhibition conceived by German artist and curator Matthias Deumlich. The contradictory image of diving and running is meant to express the need to slow down and reflect in the midst of all the fast-paced world surrounding us.
Featuring works by eleven artists, including Ingeborg Lüscher, Alexandra Ranner, Costantino Ciervo, Edgar Leciejewski, and Ingolf Keiner, the show takes a critical, poetical, humorous, and ironic look at existential questions and problems of our time.
Works on view include the video "Meta-Atem: Über Inspiration und Exspiration" by Timm Ulrichs, in which the artist finds a poignant image for the tragic fact that life always means successively working on its dissipation and disappearance.
In the video "Let's make it compact," Vassiliea Stylianidou ironizes the usual approach of branding and applies it to a place and its landscape, condensing them to a logo and an object that she promotes as an expression of perfect commercial aestheticism. The subtext inspires us to think about the form of existence and quality of life.
As part of the quartier21/MQ Artist-in-Residence program, Una Szeemann and Bohdan Stehlik produced a work specially conceived for the exhibition on the topic "Terra Nullius - no man's land."
Robert Jacobsen's "drum-cymbal-mobile" rotates above it all, floating almost. A sound object with a little fan, it represents the concept of delay in a very direct way. A gentle tapping on the cymbal and big drum communicates across the space with another sound video object by Jacobsen.
The program accompanying the exhibition includes a reading with actor and director Lore Stefanek, who is currently producing a play at the Stadttheater Klagenfurt, and a workshop for children led by Matthias Deumlich.
