ABOUT MOVING IMAGES; SOUND-ROOMS AND PERFORMANCES.
VIENNA LABELS PRESENT WORK FROM THE VIDEO,- MUSIC,- AND FASHION;-SECTOR.
An exhibition by medien.kunst.tirol – Büro für intermedialen Kommunikationstransfer
10. and 11.th of december 2005 / respectively 15:00 – 21:00h
The digital dominance is over. Today, the terms ‘digital’ and ‘analog’, as dogmatic belief maxim, don’t stand vis-a-vis in a
diametral way. In the 90’s, apparently incompatible, one type ‘in’, the other definitely ‘out’ and therefore taken with a pinch
of salt; rather lately, the artists use both methods of operation; exclusiveness (provided that it ever existed in a pure form),
was displaced by playful experiments with every available instrument.
Along with that, the idea of an artist, or better, the ‘performance’ itself experienced substantial changes. Stoic severe,
almost unemotional electro-musicians hiding behind their laptops, formed the style of the pure digital music era. But since a
fairly long time, the same musicians revert to instruments and all kinds of tools suited for creating sounds. These, sometimes,
‘laboratory’-appearing productions offer an interesting visual element to all intends and purposes.
Athe the same time, the style of contemporary moving images outreaches from computer generated geometric abstraction to
hand-drawn animations; ‘cold’ video aesthetics and ‘hot’ mogion picture language less coexist, but interdigitate.
In short, after a period of time (the last 10-15 years), where digital, automated methods of operation seemed to dominate,
nowadays the artist itself is put into focus. The person(s)’ methods of presentation, the performative doesn’t necessarily
change, but the accentuation changed sensible.
The two-day festival FRESH TRIPS explores these tendencies in local (as well as international) music- and video- productions.
Three labels form the base for different ‘disciplines’ music (MOSZ), moving image (INDEX) and fashion (__fabrics interseason).
Saying that the artists, in no case, exist isolated, but are rather linked together by naturally acting in different fields.
The wide and varied agenda, that, besides screening, dissertations and concerts, features some installative media work, delivers
insight to current productions, where ‘digital-analog’ and artistic multi-tasking constitutes a thread through all categories.
