DIVING IN: An Inquiry into Imagery

Curated by Anamarija Batista
Exhibition
27/11 — 10/12 2019
Opening
26/11 2019 7:30pm
The selected works examine image production and the roles of visual representation and its reception from various perspectives. By incorporating different methodological approaches they create immersive imagery, drawing attention to the role of the visual in constructing their material and social dimensions

With her self-constructed photographic apparatus Agnieszka Kozłowska wanders through the thermal areas of Switzerland and exposes light-sensitised mineral sediments from the spring waters directly in the camera to form images of the landscape. Eriz Moreno delves deep into Yugoslavian documentary materials and its mechanisms of representation. Nika Rukavina develops a performance piece in reference to the quote by Colin Moore: “We’re probably touched by hundreds of images every day, all propaganda of one kind or another. Propaganda has helped define our lives, and it’s everywhere now: we just don’t call it propaganda.” She examines how images are received and read or, more precisely, how their rapid distribution and, in many cases, inadequate contextualization affect the perceptive capacities of their recipients. Yara Mekawei explores systems of thought of medieval Sufism by means of numerical codification. She transforms a text by Mansur Al Hallaj into sound material and a series of analog and digital image forms. With the help of the photographic act of portraying, Đejmi Hadrović’s work “Zahida is a Feminist” draws the viewers’ attention to the simplified understanding of women’s positions in rural regions of the Balkans within the Western feminist canon. Chong-Ha Peter Lee’s work deals with junctions and interrelations between, on the one hand, imaginary spaces that are created through the use of new technologies and, on the other hand, the forms of movement produced by the human body.

All artists presently participate or have previously participated in the Artists-in-Residence Programme, organized by KulturKontakt Austria and the Federal Chancellery of Austria. The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the Artists-in-Residence Programme of the Federal Chancellery and KulturKontakt Austria.
