CURATOR´S SELECTION #4Ein Eimer, ein Arm, eine Leiter, ein Stuhl, eine Hand, ein Staubsauger, Licht und eine Berührung, a solo show by Alexander Basile

25.7. – 5.9.2016

Alexander Basile’s featured multi-channel video work „Ein Eimer, ein Arm, eine Leiter, ein Stuhl, eine Hand, ein Staubsauger, Licht und eine Berührung.“ can be considered as a reflection of his artistic approach and work process. By presenting eight video sequences from previous works, the artist uses his archive to put already excisting material into a new context. As the working title already implies, the compilation of images stands for collecting diversified impressions, producing novel relations between them and understanding the artistic work as a process. While giving banal objects and situations formal aesthetics, Alexander deals with the constant image production of our today’s society, the image itself and its representation. Curating video extracts with a focus on moving body parts and objects in this online exhibition illustrates once more his conceptual body of work. Images are used as fragments – the artist selects, combines and presents them in different contexts at different times. The curatorial format becomes the artists own format.
