Make Every Second Count, Galleri Box, 5.10.-4.11.2018

Make Every Second Count
5.10. – 4.11.2018
Galleri Box, Göteborg

Avajaiset / Opening / Vernissage 5.10. klo 17-20

Taiteilijakollektiivi Kunst / Artist Collective Kunst is showing recent collaborative works in exhibition Make Every Second Count at Galleri Box in Gothenburg, Sweden, during 5.10.-4.11.2018.

Make Every Second Count consists of two individual artworks. The human desire to understand and manage time, technical processing of information and communication are in the focus of the exhibition. The installations depict different aspects of the relationship between humans, nature and technology.
Ever-evolving technology creates the feeling that life is getting faster and faster. Live-streamed entertainment, real-time services and 24/7 access provides the impression that time is accelerating. According to Schuman Resonance all matter has a frequency or an electro magnetic pulse. When this resonance was first measured in the 1950’s, the earth’s frequency was 7.8 hertz. Recently it has been recorded at 12 hertz. This means that a 24 hour day now feels as if it’s just 16 hours.
The Second Rule of Time is that Time is Indispensable.
Time is The Currency of the Future.

Taiteilijakollektiivi Kunst / Artist Collective Kunst consists of 6 finnish artists. Together we produce works, both collaboratively and as individual artists. We create artistic interventions, exhibitions and performative events and curate Gallery Lapinlahti in Helsinki. Make Every Second Count -exhibition was created by Christina Holmlund, Pia Paldanius, Sirpa Päivinen, Anu Suhonen ja Julia Weckman.

Facts of Life 3.0 in Art Center Mältinranta 17.3.-3.4.2018

Taiteilijakollektiivi Kunst: Facts of Life 3.0
Taidekeskus Mältinranta 17.3.-3.4.2018

Facts of Life 3.0 käsittelee muuttuvan yhteiskunnan, luonnon ja ihmisen välisen toiminnan synnyttämiä ristiriitoja, ympäristöä ja identiteettiä, konsumerismiä ja poliittista asenneilmapiiriä.

Kuinka henkilökohtainen kokemus heijastuu tulkintaan ja muokkaa tulkintaa? Miten havainto ja opittu näkeminen tuottavat kuvallisia järjestyksiä? Maisemallinen tila on ikäänkuin tapahtumahorisontti, jossa aito ja keinotekoinen, villi luonto ja urbaani kohtaavat. Kaikki voi olla oikein tai väärin. Näyttely on sarja tutkimuksia utopian ja imitaation suhteesta todellisuuteen.

Taiteilijakollektiivi Kunst on kuuden taiteilijan yhteistoiminnallinen yksikkö, joka operoi nykytaiteen kentällä. Kunst tekee yhdessä teemallisia ja performatiivisia yhteisnäyttelyitä sekä taiteellisia interventioita. Erimediaisuus avaa näkökulmia sisällöllisiin ja kokemuksellisiin kohtaamisiin.

Nordsicht #2
Artist Collective Kunst: Lines of communication are open
Nextex Artspace
Frongartenstrasse 9, St. Gallen, Switzerland

Artist collective Kunst’s audio installation ”Lines of communication are open”, consists of landline telephones, audio recordings and a curtain.

Installation is an attempt to look at the present in the light of the future or through shadows of the past. We have pondered upon technical process of information and the process of human communication. In its´ singularities connectivity, comprehension and depicted signals are key factors. We strongly advice you to answer the apparatus when it rings and take a chance to experience the lines of
communication between various entities. Hence it is a moment when the passage is open.

Objects act as hypothetical wormholes between different levels of time and space. Passages create shortcuts for long journeys across the universe. They have been predicted by the theory of general relativity and it has been known that the opening of passages could be only achieved by some unknown exotic substance. Until now wormholes have not stayed open long enough to travel from one place to another. They may not only connect two separate regions within the universe, they could also connect two different universes. But be wary: wormholes bring with them the dangers of sudden collapse, possibly high radiation and disturbing contact with exotic matters.

In the passage there can be encountered a density of singularities, where information loses its shape and communication becomes a voyeristic, virtual like experience. It reaches the point where all laws of physics break down.

Obeying the cosmic censorship hypothesis singularity remains hidden behind the curtain. It is always surrounded by an area which does not allow light to escape, and therefore cannot be directly observed. The only exception the hypothesis allows is naked singularity, the initial Big Bang itself. We have failed to describe or absolutely understand singularity. Even though an observer can send signals, nothing inside can ever communicate with anything outside.

The future lies always behind the curtain.
