Exhibition: Corner Surveillance + 24/7 Photography
January 31 @ 2:00 pm - February 23 @ 6:00 pm
What is real? What is perception? Can we materialize the dimension of time visually? The artist Alexander Steig raise these and other questions with the exhibition Corner Surveillance + 24/7 Photography installing a 3-channel closed-circuit video staging consisting of 3 cameras filming the corners of a room and projecting the images at the exhibition area.
The images created are something abstract and geometric playing with two and three dimensions where the dimension time is also protagonist thanks to the real-time projection.
Steig investigates since 1990 the interweaving of painting, sculpture (architecture) and video in relation to the space-time axis and the location reference using new media as the vehicle to bring it together. Light, space, time deconstruction, manipulation, and decontextualization are topics present in his works of art, offering new visions with the intersection of different materials.
Apart from the exhibition, that will be available until the 23rd of February, on Saturday 9 of February, the event ART(othek) & BREAKFAST – Kunst zum Frühstück, gives the opportunity to discuss the topics of the exhibition having a conversation and a breakfast with Steig.
