The event will focus on relations between the works of these two
artists and their artistic positions. Both artists will present
several recent projects, including Occurrence At Lookout Rock
by Julie Orser and Anamnese by Monika Pirch.
In Occurrence At Lookout Rock, Julie employs four cameras to record,
in opposing directions, a panoramic Western genre landscape that
encircles the viewer. Utilizing a set of archetypical Western
characters (The Lady, Saloon Girl, Cowgirl, and Outlaw), her video
installation investigates the manufactured realism produced by
the mise-en-scene without a narrative framework.
In Anamnese, Monika presents a set of handwritten poetic questions
to the viewer in a school notebook. The questions deal with the
repetition and duration of daily life situations, but cannot be
answered. Each letter of the text is written upside down, which
appear right side up for the viewer, generating a child-like style
that mirrors the seriousness and absurdity of the questions in
a special way.
This event is being presented as a forum for visitors in the arts:
making connections, supporting networks, exchanging ideas and
initiating dialogues. Corinna Schnitt, an artist based in Cologne
temporarily living in Los Angeles, organized the event.
