on Bifurcations, Combinatorial Thinking and Space Production

Since 2005 I have been working with the colombian artist – Juan Orozco as Telefante, exploring with the language of live cinema, the improvisation and the speculative in medial spectacles by appropriating a a kind of (new)media archeology.

The following lines are a re creation of texts that I wrote live in three audiovisual improvisations done in Tokyo , Seoul and Kuala Lumpur between the 13th and 27th of February 2018 creating a collage of thoughts around the unknown, the speculative and the production of knowledge:

Klangsondagen für Thomas Kling

For Klangsondangen for Thomas Kling the trombone guitar duo Matthias Muche/Nicola L. Hein, the Viennese vocal artist Christian Reiner and the video artists Luis Negrón van Grieken and Matthias Neuenhofer have processed texts from Thomas Kling’s work (in the sense of the “language installation”) visually/digital, musically and vocally and developed them into musical-spatial compositions.

small 5 min excerpt from 50 min performance in KHM Cologne 2019

The work of the writer Thomas Kling has left its mark on German literature and set new standards in many areas. In his texts, Kling often emphasizes the tonal dimension of language through the omission of vowels, the use of different dialects, the conscious accumulation of chains of sounds, and a special kind of performance without dissolving the semantics of language. He also did groundbreaking work on the communication of music/text and the musicality of poetic language.

These place the intimate interlocking of text, music, language and image at the centre of the work, thereby throwing completely new perspectives on the communication of music, image and language and the works of Kling used here.

The rehearsals will take place in the architect Raimund Abraham’s architecturally highly interesting building, in the immediate vicinity of the Thomas Kling Archive at the Hombroich rocket station in Neuss, where an additional performance will be presented on 10 October 2019.

Interview in Santa Marta

Interviews form Museo de Arte Contemporeaneo Santa Marta Colombia

It aims to create an environment of cultural and creative exchange, where a common complex artistic language is invented and used to communicate narratives, textures, colliding, combining, attracting worlds of sight and sound. The group of eight artists will work together in two different groups for three days to create an audiovisual performance that explores multidisciplinary improvisation as well as structure and narrative. The resulting artworks reflect on the themes of interculturality, cultural identity, cross cultural communication, the history of artistic thought (in different cultures) and many other philosophical topoi. The concert encompasses two Echtzeit-movies, which are improvised by a group alongside a conceptual composition that has been worked out during the rehearsals. Every group presents a piece that is in between 40-50 minutes long.

¿Cuánto hay en el Pote? – Mixed Media Installation at Art Fair Bogota / Colombia

Cecilia, ¿cuanto hay en el pote?

In a play of identities between Professor Negrón (creator of the TV show Monte su Cauchos Goodyear in the 50’s) and Luis Negrón as the author of the piece, recreate this installation a document by mixing real events with the subjective vision of the same author, by creating a place where found materials collide with personal insights of the artist and therefore reflecting likewise the complexity between TV, dictatorship and modernity in the Venezuela of the 50s.

WDR Beitrag

Videodokumentation

Austellung in der Gallerie der KHM, Glasmoog: Archipielago

Die KHM veranstaltet in Zusammenarbeit mit der UNAL, Partneruniversität in Bogota, Kolumbien, ein Symposium zur Rolle der Künstler und Filmemacher, mit Fragen nach deren gesellschaftlicher Verantwortung und den Möglichkeiten von Interventionen in einem komplexen gesellschaftlichen Drama vor dem Hintergrund imperialistischer Geschichte, Globalisierung, Narration und aktueller nationaler und internationaler Politik.

Wie steht es um den bewaffneten Konflikt in Kolumbien?

Kann der heutige Umgang miteinander der am jahrzehntelangen Konflikt Beteiligten als Blaupause für zahlreiche andere große bewaffnete Konflikte weltweit herhalten?

Das Symposium POST-KONFLIKT soll Vorträge, Screenings, Performances und Installationen zusammenbringen, um einen Raum zur Diskussion zu schaffen.

Mit Gästen aus der Kunstfakultät der Universidad Nacional de Colombia / Bogotá und weiteren Referent*Innen wird somit die Komplexität dieser spannenden und schwierigen Zeit vor und nach den ersten erfolgreichen Friedensverhandlungen durchleuchtet.
