“I chose the picture with the sun because it is an element that I like very much. I like brightness. I like joy. As a place for photographing I have chosen the Michaela church. This is one of the oldest churches as far as I know in Steyr. It is not big, you feel really homely there and it is also very bright in this church. (Participant from Steyr)
The picture that served as a model comes from a work by Olafur Eliason, as can be seen on the right next to a drawing from the workshop.
“I am proud of what I have done” says that participant from Schärding, who can be seen in this picture” .
In the exhibition space, the participants of the project become visible through photographs. In addition, drawings on the weather phenomena, videos are presented. Audio recordings also give the participants a voice.
Drawings that have to be put on paper in 15 seconds in quick drawing rounds, in the terms to the weather, are to be seen here from the region Mühlviertel.
The exhibition can be seen until July 31 in the KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd and will subsequently be visible in the regions.
The KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd is an offer of pro mente Upper Austria. The annual theme for 2018 is “Cooperation is a long way. We can do something about it!”
Participatory processes and artistic results are central to the work of KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd. As a production and presentation space for contemporary art, KunstRaum works on societal and social issues and for an expanded concept of art. Bringing cultural participation and art into everyday life is a central concern.
“Participation is more than taking part in the finished conceived work of art. It is being invited to participate in the production process: Working with KunstRaum Goethestrasse xtd means engaging in a collaborative process in which ideas, conceptions and ways of working do not simply meet in the middle, but rub up against each other, challenge each other, and then come together to form a unique whole. These are collaboratively achieved results in which fellow artists and participants find themselves in different positions.” (Claudia Schnugg on KunstRaum)
