exhibition at Lentos, Linz

Obviously a major malfunction / KAGO KAGO KAGO BE
(Woran glauben die Motten, wenn sie zu den Lichtern streben)

Lentos Kunstmuseum, Linz

(exhibition views here!)
(catalogue: yes!)

The meteorites keep falling and other things, too.
And the kago keeps falling and the space shuttle fell two times and now the remaining shuttles fly no more.
A checklist has been on the moon, check, check, and back, and the space colonies, where heck are they?
If you want to record a drop of pitch, you need time lapse AND slow motion, because first the drop takes seven years, and then it’s down in just another, oh, moment.

Und die Bilder zittern immer. Shiver, jitter, shudder. Chatter, dither, quake, quaver, quiver, shake, tremble, usw.
Alle starren auf die grosse Uhr. Manchmal bleibt sie stehen. Aber wenn sie weiterzählt, ist bei Null der Start.
“Dann hat es die ersten (Menschen) zerissen. Und dann hat es (die Menschen) reihum zerrissen. Die einen an den inneren Widersprüchen. Die anderen zwischen den Träumen und dem äusseren Leben. Aber die Astronauten hat es zerrissen weil der O-Ring zu kalt war und sich nicht mehr dehnte. Weil der O-Ring nicht mehr dehnbar war, weil an der Küste von Florida Eiszapfen hingen, weil dann der Treibstoff ausgetreten ist.” Exhaust no good: Burnout.

Outside fire burning and inside fire burning, too.
And always the clouds, ephemeral sculptures in time and space.
A slip of tongue and there you go: Beschwörungstheorie.


Small things and big things and volatile things and forever things and all things.
1,9,8,6, and 2,0,0,3, two shuttles fell down and things called debris were collected and reconstructions in a hangar. And in between these numbers a lot of other things, too.
Und nichts ist mehr oben und nichts ist mehr unten. Und damit nichts mehr oben und unten ist, muss alles fallen. Und dann muss alles fallen. Kago Kago Kago, Kago fall zu uns.
“Verona Rupes, abyss of the abyss, steepest cliff of all!”

And I, I would be happy and honored and happy again to see you at my opening in Linz on August 11th.
In short, it’s an exhibition like a Latour Litany. Which is a beautiful term coined by Ian Bogost, referring to lists of objects, like the ones employed in Bruno Latour’s writing, for example. Like Challenger, Chernobyl, VHS-C, Waldheim, tear gas, shivering, the Berlin Wall, C. Elegans, and the smell of charred wood, for example.
“Aber man muss auch nicht alles verstehen.”

Another long list, and this one’s clear to understand: all the people involved in this exhibition, their work, help and support for what is by distorting convention labeled as “solo show”.

Thank you all!
