|Petra Poelzl (Artistic and Managing Director of Kunstpavillon & Neue Galerie Innsbruck) will visit the artist Margret Wibmer in her studio in Amsterdam to learn more about Wibmer’s artistic practice, as well as the artist’s most recent video work “Relay” that was released with the eponymous book publication of the same title, published by Vfmk – Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna and the Collectors Edition.
In the multimedia work “Relay” Wibmer analyses the relationship between body, object and (digital) space through individual performances in front of a camera. She investigates the possibility of re-activating a performance through digital media. Ten participants, all close friends of the artist, interpret a textile object that was created by Wibmer for the purpose of the intervention. These improvisations in front of a black background, reveal intrinsic processes. Balancing on the boundaries between tangible materiality and digital (im)materiality, individual states of the soul may surface and also a deep awareness, connecting us with others and with the world. Wibmer sees the participants as representatives of something universally human, which shapes the broader context of this work.
