HYPERSURFACE is a group exhibition exploring the porosity of
surfaces – from the human skin to walls and screens – in order to present
possibilities beyond materiality and signification, and alternative understandings
of our surroundings.
Employing a transversal approach, the selected artists
present works that showcase their perception of the world and blur antinomies
such as micro/macro, inside/outside, real/virtual and beyond. Surfaces
themselves become, rather than a separator or protective layer, a channel and a
connector between worlds. The show presents a combination of different mediums
playing with softness, transparency, site-specific interventions and virtual
realities where technology functions as a gate to access extended notions of
space and shape reality.
The participating artists are both from the UK and Austria,
but also from Denmark, Germany and Sweden. For the majority of the Austrian
artists it will be the first time showing in UK.
The participating artists are: AVD (UK),Daniel Ferstl (AT),
Julius Heinemann (DE), Barbara Kapusta (AT), Sophia Mairer (AT), Simon Mathers
(UK), Florian Mayr (AT), Marie Munk & Stine Deja (DK), Hannah Neckel (AT),
Stefan Reiterer (AT) and Rustan Sòˆderling (SE).
The show is curated by Caterina Avataneo (IT) and Nicole
Tatschl (AT).
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication designed
by work-form.
The exhibition is supported by the Federal Chancellery of
Austria (BKA).
