About the show Johanna Bruckner (*1984) challenges our notions on the non/human body, intimacies, and emotional worlds produced by the ongoing transformation of technology. We present her new 3-channel video collaboration with dancer/performer Kihako Narisawa, filmed at Lago Mio. Till Langschied (*1987) focusses in his artistic research on the relation between humans and technology. For him, machines and technologies have metaphysical meanings. We present his metal reliefs and his new film Tartarus Mining (about the unsustainable attitudes of extraction capitalism), all created at Lago Mio. Diana Lelonek (*1988) explores relationships between humans and other species, responding to over-production and unlimited growth. We present her work Compost and other parts of a series of plant-videos, imagining how Homo sapiens will one day solve their self-made problems.
Über die Austellung Johanna Bruckner (*1984) hinterfragt unsere Vorstellung über nicht-menschliche Körper, Intimitäten und emotionale Welten, die durch technologische Transformationen entstehen. Wir präsentieren ihre bei Lago Mio gefilmte 3-Kanal-Video-Kollaboration mit der Tänzerin/Performerin Kihako Narisawa. Till Langschied (*1987) erforscht das Verhältnis zwischen Mensch und Technik. Maschinen und Technologien haben metaphysische Bedeutungen. Wir zeigen Metallreliefs und seinen neuen Film Tartarus Mining über die ausbeuterischen Zustände des Extraktionskapitalismus. Diana Lelonek (*1988) erforscht Beziehungen zwischen Menschen und anderen und reagiert damit auf Überproduktion und Wachstum. Wir zeigen Compost und andere Teile einer Serie von Pflanzenvideos, die imaginieren, wie der Homo sapiens eines Tages ihre*seine selbst gemachten Probleme lösen wird.
We were thrilled by the numerous applications for the 2020 late summer residency in August/September, including an exhibition opening on 23 October 2020. It has been a real struggle to make our final selection, and we are all the more delighted with the well-considered choice made by our jury:
Johanna Bruckner from Vienna/Austria, based in Zurich/Switzerland, moves to Lago Mio after her residence at the Istituto Svizzero in Rome/Italy. Till Langschied, born in Frankfurt/Germany, travels from Basel/Switzerland. Diana Lelonek from Warsaw/Poland, is our non-physical guest – she is currently stuck in her apartment in Warsaw because of the coronavirus.
Johanna Bruckner (*1984) ’s work relates to ecologies of trust, care, and labor. She unsettles notions on the non/human body, intimacies, and emotional worlds produced by the ongoing transformation of technology. Her work asks how the indeterminacy of being might inform hybrid temporalities better tooled to deal with current technological, political, and ecological changes. She mainly works in the media of video, installation, and performance. http://johannabruckner.com/
Till Langschied (*1987) concentrates his practice on the field of human hopes and dreams and investigates how they manifest themselves in the form of machines and technologies. He explores the evolving relationships between virtual and analog spaces. He first develops many of his works in digital formats and then transforms them into physical objects and installations in order to question the agency of the virtual. https://till-langschied.de
Diana Lelonek (*1988) explores relationships between humans and other species. Her projects are critical responses to the processes of over-production, unlimited growth, and our approach to the environment. She uses photography, living matter, and found objects, creating work that is interdisciplinary and often appears at the interface of art and science. http://dianalelonek.com/
