The phrase „out of touch“ or „out of touch with reality“ stands for a feeling of incapacity to understand, or to feel/touch something anymore: a symptom that may also describe our current relationship to technology. In the seemingly dematerializing world, we engage more and more with immaterial and territorially unbound spaces behind mirror-smooth screens, that are not tangibly accessible.
Susanna Flock’s solo exhibition „how to turn a man into a melon“ brings together works that explore traces that the interweaving of technologies with all aspects of our lives leaves behind.
October 21th – 30th, 3 – 6pm
Saturday and Sunday closed
Also open by appointment.
Postponed due the actual COVID-19 restrictions
The TRANSFERENCE program brings together works that deal with translation. A range of different approaches are shown:
Annja Krautgasser transfers existing film material into a filmic miniature, Marwa Arsanios’ fragmented essay narrative works with re-enactments of documentary material. Michaela Schwentner’s film transposes theoretical text material into a cinematic, figurative setting, and Tatiana Lecomte’s tracing of an actual event is translated into sound using generative techniques.

Last September, bb15 hosted the artist Nieves de la Fuente in the course of an artist residence. During her stay, de la Fuente worked on a long-term project of hers entiteled “Reliquia de las disciplinas geograficas”, initiated in 2014 and based on a short story by Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. In collaboration with „Grand Garage Linz“ Nieves produced a new sculptural work embodying a possible inhabitant of Borges‘ narrated territory. The work will be presented in a collective exhibition at bb15 at the end of the year. Here is a video interview made during her residency.
