RHYTHM AND DECAY | Kunsthalle Linz | 22.11.2016

“RHYTHM AND DECAY” // Sebastian Six

“You went out with your best sweater on
With every intention of dancing till dawn
But when the DJ played that song …”

You are standing in front of the door with a dull memory of alcohol and flickering light. Your slow-drying sweat sucks the cold deep under your skin and the reverberation of too-loud beats fades into an eternal hum in the ears. “What is now, are you coming?”

Acoustic experiments in connection with items of everyday life, sculptural assemblages and the physical element of sound are the main aspects of Sebastian Six’s musical and visual compositions. The works deal with moments where noise becomes music and the difference between hearing and active listening is explored.

“NOTES ON TOMORROW ” CURATED BY LUISA SANTOS

If we think of contemporary art as a social system – an idea coined by Niklas Luhmann (1992) putting the arts in the realm of perception -, we locate art in what it does at its best: showing possible realities, through a critical observation, of the world we live in, at social, economical and political levels.

It is precisely in this idea that the history of the collective exhibition Notes on Tomorrow unfolds.  The characters (the works) of this story come together in a series of dichotomies. Firstly, the large in conflict with the small; on the other hand, the visual formalisation of the contrasts between History, fiction and memories; the relationship between the observer and the observed; contemplation and creation; networks of information, stories and seemingly random events; and, finally, the contradiction between known and unknown, translated by the desire to discover, to change to something beyond the horizon and, paradoxically, the need for familiar refuges.

These dichotomies are not about presenting definitive answers for contemporary society’s challenges but more about looking into a series of questions, observations and experimentations. In this way, these representations reflect the ambivalence of human relations. In other words, it is about visually translating small utopia’s at local levels through inventions, desires and propositions.

Notes on Tomorrow comes in a series of twenty-one voices from different European cities (Arad, Aveiro, Genoa, Harghita County, Kaunas, Kristiansand, Lecce, Pardubice, Valladolid, Vilnius, and Zagreb) to dwell on possible perceptions about current social issues and includes installations, drawings, texts, diagrams, videos, photographs and different kinds of situations.  – Luísa Santos

subnetAIR2015 Presentation | Schmiede, Hallein/AT | 21.9.2016

Schmiede logo

FAXEN got the subnetAIR residency 2015, so we’re now invited to present the work ON AIR on 21th of September at the Schmiede in Hallein.

A helium filled balloon equipped with microphones is used to create expansive field recordings of urban areas. This method allows the artist collective FAXEN to record multiple acoustic transitions between divergent areas in an urban environment. Sonic zoom-in and zoom- out movements that oscillate between subjective and objective points of view, between actual and abstract and between close by and far away. Arranged as a multi-channel sound installation ON AIR invites the listener to explore the diverse acoustic topography of a city.

Interacting Art | Raumschiff, Linz/AT | 7. – 12.9.2016

interacting art flyer

A play on artworks, works in process and working things out by doing – together.  Through negotiation, juxtaposition, and re-contextualization, various works and non-works will be woven into an interface for the audience, built through interactive, textual and performative processes.

The project is based on a collective process initiated by Sam Bunn, Davide Bevilacqua and Sebastian Six and hosted by Raumschiff the week before the opening of Ars Electronica.

There’s no excuse for our lethargy: since we already possess the ideas, tools and techniques to initiate a change of course. The collaborative display here exhibited turns non-functional works into functional un-works, reaching towards how art might work between artworks. The project uses the medium of interaction in a way that allows the pieces to leave the traditional space of artistic discourse and to occupy instead the space of dialogue.

With Stella Baraklianou, Yen Tzu Chang & Yoh Morishita, Maria Czernohorszky, Isidora Ficovic, Laura Jade Hindes, Mary Maggic, Francesco Nordio, Patrick Schabus, Henning Schulze, Julio Sosa, Federico Tasso.
A project by Davide Bevilacqua, Sam Bunn, and Sebastian Six.

OPENING:
7th Sepember 8 pm + performances from Yen Tzu Chang & Yoh Morishita and Sebastian Six

EXHIBITION:
Thu 9 September – Mon 12 September 2016, 11 AM – 7 PM

Sat, April 9th 2016, 15:00 – 22:00
Wellnessoase Hummelhof, Ramsauerstraße 12, Linz

[H:UMMMM] examines, elaborates and processes the functionality of sounds in modern spa/wellness zones in manifold ways.

By exchanging all audio sources of the bath, experiencing performances, installations and lectures the spa area of the wellness oasis Hummelhof is converted into an auditory spa/wellness heterotopia of a different kind.
