REFRACTED REALITIES at VIDEONALE.17

In optics, “refraction” refers to the bending of a beam of light, a change in direction which occurs at the moment when it passes from one medium to another. Through refraction, the light wave alters course, changing the way we perceive the objects it illuminates in the process. This optical deviation requires us to repeatedly correct our gaze, comparing the beginning and end points of our perception with reality, and bringing the object we see clearly into focus. In its figurative sense, refraction refers to a critical reflection on the means and channels of visualization, and by extension the possibility of a rearticulation of our view of things – how they are, were, or apparently always have been.

Breaking News
Von Kelterborn Collection

Over the past 20 years, the Frankfurt couple Mario and Julia von Kelterborn have put together a collection mostly of politically explosive, socially themed video art and photography by internationally known artists. It is their conviction that art can help us to understand the present day with all its complexity, contradictions and disturbing cruelty, but also its positive potential.

Johan Grimonprez

Johan Grimonprez’s critically acclaimed work dances on the borders of practice and theory, art and cinema, documentary and fiction, demanding a double take on the part of the viewer. Informed by an archeology of present-day media, his work seeks out the tension between the intimate and the bigger picture of globalization. It questions our contemporary sublime, one framed by a fear industry that has infected political and social dialogue. By suggesting new narratives through which to tell a story, his work emphasizes a multiplicity of realities.

Christoph Faulhaber: Revolution & Architecture

Kunsthalle Osnabrück / June 15 to October 2, 2018
With "Revolution & Architecture" Christoph Faulhaber (* 1972 in Osnabrück, lives in Hamburg) conceives, builds, designs and opens a whole series of very different rooms in the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. In order to discover the revolutionary aspect of these "architectures", one has to look at the social implications of interior design in general. In the forum the visitor then enters Faulhaber's cinematic autobiography "Every Picture is an Empty Picture" as in the eye of the cyclone: The work is split into 15 individual films and surrounds the visitor in a circle.

Works


Statement

A new media artist, fusing together art and technology. In her works Segal harnesses information, software, electronics and mechanics to build installations and machines that connect the physical world with virtual ones.

Segal observes inconsistencies and dissonances that rise when personal lives meet technological evolving environments and questions issues such as intimacy vs. alienation, privacy vs. over-exposure, identity, memory and originality.

Artist Statement
Many times I see personal dimensions and human behaviors through technological and scientific prisms.I am intrigued by the ways we consume and analyze information and the effects information flow has on our self identities, personal communication, memory, choices and intimacy. The daily exposure people nowadays have to vast amounts of data and the focus span we can give to ephemeral details in this stream. I explore social and psychological changes that occur with the inflation of online private data, data that is continually supplied and collected by and on us.


Much of my way of thinking and my inspiration comes from my scientific and technological background. I studied computer science and biology and researched social, textual and biological networks. Many times I see the world as collections of information, mathematical representations or through biological models. Today this is reflected in my works.


Technology is my material, whether traditional and commonly used or state-of-the-art. I create with technologies,out of their original contexts, and give them new and intimate purposes which have nothing to do with usefulness or usability –in the sense we usually attach to these terms. The final artworks consist of several dimensions; a physical structure, motion and mechanics, electronics, software and data. The act of building the machines and activating them is significant to me. I feel that the technical choices I make affect the final artwork just as much as the touch of a painter affects a painting.


My installations and works have performative aspects. I create the conditions and choreograph the behavior but I also leave space for randomness. Whether in the starting point and data,in the interaction with the activator of the work or in its final outcome. After installing the setting and activating the work, I become a spectator myself.
