Exhibition at EIKON Schaufenster, Electric Avenue
Opening: Thu, Feb 26, 19:00
Location: EIKON Schaufenster, Electric Avenue
Michael Part’s work is created by becoming intensely involved in photo-chemical processes. The artist produces his monochromatic green pictures by the procedure of staining.
In this project the stained gelatin is directly applied to the EIKON Schaufenster’s glass front, and is hereby subjected to light exposure. The malachite oxalate, which has not been commercially used now for some time due to its poor light fastness, changes constantly during the time of presentation. This creates new shades of color. The gelatin coating alters under the viewer’s very eyes.

Stephen Tompkins: Re-Animated
Exhibition in the Jan Arnold Gallery
Opening: Thu, Jun 30, 18:00
Venue: Jan Arnold Gallery, Electric Avenue
Stephen Tompkins is an American artist and experimental animator currently based in Ohio after living for many years on the US West Coast.
His idiosyncratic style recalls the sensibilities of outsider/visionary art, urban/street art, comic art forms, vintage animated cartoons form and color.
He oftentimes deconstructs these vocabularies to their atomic elements and resurrects them as organic associative assemblages sometimes superimposing these metastatic formations on photographic imagery.
Robin Clark of MCASD remarked "Tompkins’ associative process playfully sutures the sublime and the ridiculous." Additionally, his work has been associated with the 'Hardcore' Pop Surrealism movement.

Don't know where going. An animated conversation between Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard
Exhibition in the ASIFAKEIL
Opening: Mon, May 30, 15:00
A collaborative animation project by Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard. The film will be an animated dialogue between the two animators. One animator draws a small sequence and the next animator draws the next sequence going on and on straight ahead without a plan for roughly 750 frames (1 minute).
Content will form itself naturally, only through associative moving images with no planing ahead.
The film will be projected on a loop in the exhibtion presented along side frames from the film, that will be for sale.
Réka Bucsi and Peter Millard are Q21 Artists-in-Residence at the MuseumsQuartier Wien in May (invited by VIS Vienna Independent Shorts in cooperation with ASIFA AUSTRIA).
