Visible Walls, 2008

This piece is an exploration of concepts as visibility, isolation, separation and exclusion. The wall, traditional element of construction and symbol of the idea of protection is used as a metaphor to explore these terms in relation to the building itself where the artists are doing their residency. The work also deals with the issue of what is seen and the ambiguity of images.
Ideas such as home, secret, observation, prohibition and the ambiguity of the visible are treated then in a satirical mood. In a highly technological society what we see is in debate.
The piece will be presented in three rooms. The day of the opening it will be an action-performance as the unifying event of both the evening and the exhibition.

Die Arbeit ’Visible Walls’ will Begriffe wie Sichtbarkeit, Isolierung, Trennung und Ausgrenzung hinterfragen. Die Wand, im klassischen Sinne ein vertikales Bauteil und ein Symbol für Schutz, dient als eine Metapher um diese Begriffe in Bezug auf das Gebäude, in welchem die Künstler ihre Resindence haben, zu erforschen.
Ideen wie Haus, Geheimnis, Beobachtung, Verbot und die Zweideutigkeit des Sichtbaren werden in einer satirischen Sichtweise behandelt. In einer hoch technologischen Gesellschaft steht das was wir sehen in der Debatte.
Die Arbeit wird in drei Räumen gezeigt. Am Öffnungstag wird ein Action-performance das Vereinigungsereignis von sowohl dem Abend als auch der Ausstellung sein.

This is a piece created to be presented at PROGR, Bern. The piece entitled Visible Walls, is composed of different works:
