280610: Kunstraum Niederösterreich Judith Fegerl – Self

Kunstraum Niederösterreich Judith Fegerl – Self 11.06.10 – 24.07.10 Give space Judith Fegerl’s exhibition at the Kunstraum Niederösterreich reminds of numerous other renowned exhibitions, in which artists placed the exhibition space into the centre of attention or have gone to other extremes: Santioago Serra, Yves Klein, Daniel Buren, Chris Burden and others. Fegerl’s exhibition, which centres on the exhibition space, is a reference to, and a reflection of, the world of art, artwork, the white cube. Judith Fegerl applies the stratagem of sci-fi; earlier works by the artist underline this association. The destruction conveyed by wiring torn out of the walls and the darkness of the room correlates with dystopian scenarios: they remind of novels and movies in which space, emptied of all kinds of projections, is left over as a raw setting, sometimes more daunting than expected (Stanislaw Lem’s Futurological Conference, Matrix), as a banal reality (the Enterprise Holodeck, Cronenberg’s eXistenZ) or in which different levels of reality, reality and virtuality, fight each other and overlap at numerous levels of reality (Lem, eXistenZ, Matrix). On the one hand, the tangle of cables is a reality level behind a concrete architectural space, which is now (allusively) disclosed, and on the other hand – taken out of its “background dwelling” - it also functions as an artwork: composed, put into proportion with the room, arranged in circles and lines, the cables no longer appear as coincidentally hanging down and attain a work character. The wiring marks the places of the sockets, the necessary connection to every black box and any further developed technology to an energy- and electricity network. The contemplation on reality/materiality/virtuality of the artwork occurs through the unclear association of elements to a certain room- and reality level. Self-reflection – which provides the exhibition title. The data lines are also marked by cables, and – set in a loop - are only connected to themselves, and open another, individual dimension of meaning.
