SUMMER SEMESTER 2019

DANIELA BRILL ESTRADA  |  FRÉDÉRIQUE NEUTS LEROY  |  MARC SCHURAN  RAFAEL LIPPUNER  |  DENISE SCHELLMANN

(1) Daniela Brill Estrada – The Nonessential Essential
2019, Experiment, drawings
Annex: Salzgries 14, 2nd floor, 1010 Vienna
15–17 June, 14–18:00
The Force of Embodiment, a hypothesis about a new fundamental force in nature and the intrinsic capacity of matter to reincarnate. Written from the perspective of an artist immersed in the scientific world, its language and theories and in collaboration with scientists from CERN, this artistic work presents the visualization and study of a hypothetical force, compared to known and proven forces, electroweak or electromagnetic forces, strong and gravitational forces. The proposed Force of Embodiment is impossible to prove scientifically but is coherent to the discourse of particle physics. Qualified as “poetic but not scientific” in the physics world, and being proud of this qualification, this hypothesis opens up a discussion on how far art can imagine itself into the world of particle physics.

(2) Frederique Neuts Leroy – The Other Place
2019, Installation, drawings
Main Building: Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz 2, 1010 Vienna
Schwanzer-Trakt, basement, room 918
14–16 June, 16–19:00
This art project is focused on Marc Augé’s concept called the “non-place.” This concept was developed upon analysing the importance of the different types of places that can be defined as non-places, and focuses on how and why these places are essential
in our hyper-modern cities. In fact, sites such as highways, storage areas, urban voids or unoccupied areas are classified as “other  places” and most of the time, they are neglected and invisible to the citizens. These other places have been directly observed by  walking around Vienna and have been recorded in drawings. The purpose of this art project is to show the perceptions we could have of these “other placess” by means of an installation of 3D art and drawings. The art project implies a certain degree of abstraction to make the spectator consider the multiple aspects of the “non-place” concept.

(3) Marc Schuran – Nucleus Processing
2019, Installation
Main Building: Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz 2, 1010 Vienna
Schwanzer-Trakt, 1st floor,  room "Star 9"
16–20 June, 10–20:00
An illustration of the reflection of the ecology of practices in profession: principles and methods of Friendship Projects. The Friendship Project is a special form of service, a sort of a gift, or present with its own unique social rules. These rules are blurred and soaked with special cases that make it almost impossible to work out a clear pattern. The installation should illustrate the processes that arise during the implementation of such a project. The project idea itself behaves like the nucleus of an atom--forces are absorbed and released around the core, until the project finally finds a final form under enormous energy transformations.

(4) Rafael Lippuner – A Convention of Small Moments
2019, Multimedia Installation
Main Building: Oskar-Kokoschka-Platz 2, 1010 Vienna
Ferstel-Trakt, ground floor, Lichthof B
15 and 17–20 June
Routines, gestures and movements are physically linked to different objects and places, transporting their momentum to create a moment elsewhere. A part of the microcosmos which is the everyday working environment at this institution is tapped and resonant in the Lichthof, where various elements are installed. With site-specific aspects as well as its inhabitants – the people who work or study there – in mind, a cumulative kinetic sculpture is created with the intention of regaining a bit of the lost magic and reconsidering the uncertainty as a friend.

(5) Denise Schellmann – The Arcientic Andism | My Romantic Manifesto
2019, Videoperformance
Annex: Salzgries 14, 2nd floor, seminar room, 1010 Vienna
15–17 June, 16–19:00
Driven by an inner conflict? Denise Schellmann is actively involved in both fine art and traditional science, as well as in the special field of art & science itself. She is ranging between divergent categories. Or are they actually the same? What is art? What is science? What is art & science? How can she obtain stability in the indefinable realm between art and science? How should the artist practice? How should she define categories? Schellmann’s mission is to explore her personal perception on the border between two fictitious worlds. Her mission is to unite and to bridge them. Is this possible at all?
Also with thanks to Michael Hoch.
