THE OTHER WHERE
…..in this way, every artist appears to be a citizen of an unknown fatherland,
of which his memory has faded…….. M. Proust
The artistic theme of the exhibition series Nomadics is based on the evolution of locality. It focuses on the dynamics of wandering as a junction between new places and old networks: The borders between real and virtual space, the interdependency between existing and constructed world, physical and psychological experience, the visible and the invisible.Tristesse Deluxe is going for a wander. The first exhibition out of Berlin will take place at OFF Space, Vienna.
“The Other Where” is the fifth event in the Nomadics Exhibition series. The artistic challenge is to capture artistic visions of distance within moving image.
Artists are today’s nomads: anxious, constantly leaving, arriving. This way of life is partly chosen out of personal freedom and curiosity, partly dominated through the circumstances of their work – the artists themselves being always driven by changes in their own personality and their evolving perception of the outside.
Is it the human longing for “more” behind our material existence or the craving for a world promising fulfillment that man cannot and doesn’t want to experience on a physical level? We are searching for these terms in image and language, looking to unlock new shapes and levels of reality.
We will present a four-day screening program with four daily compilations in repeating mode.
A live performance, video installations and additional flat screens (where works can be viewed individually) will frame the screenings.
