First showing of the Video installation American Landscapes 30. September 2006 all day event
The artist will be present
The photographs as well as the video installation of the New York artist Katherine Newbegin show passing through spaces - temporary spaces. Abandoned hotels, cinemas, cafes or asylums: the concentration of her works is the absence of the human, which is not the main subject, but the traces of their live are sensed. Katherine Newbegin has investigated those left traces of human being in the US, Cuba, Rumania, Poland and Germany. Although every country was a new project, it is surprising to find the global similarities of passed time, which not only can be sensed but be seen due to the left relicts.
Her video installation American Landscapes however takes place in the United States - travelling across the country. The combination between sound and noise, with sequences of closing and opening elevator doors and human spaces being accessible, creates a feeling of paranoia and a moment of feeling lost and forgotten - just as the spaces your are entering.
Until November 04th 2006, Tue-Sa 11-19h
