BERLIN.- With this exhibition of LAb[au] the Kunst Station St. Peter, who exhibited works by Francis Bacon, Joseph Beuys or Anish Kapoor, will show for the first time art works dealing with generative art and interactive media. The installations of the artists group emphasise on the relationship of art, technology and space, here in the context of the church building.
The artists group Lab[au], laboratory for architecture and urbanism, from Brussels combines art and research, works with software coding, develops new interfaces and realises a.o. large projects in urban spaces. Thereby they raise fundamental questions about contemporary art: "What can art look like in the Digital Age and what impact do new technologies have on our society, on aesthetics and on our approach to art?"
In this exhibition they show the kinetic interactive sculpture "Framework 5x5x5" - an installation with 125 mobile frames - in addition with prints that transform the generative processes of the installation into an abstract composition. Furthermore the installation EOD02, which is based on the transformation of electric signals from fishes into light and sound, will be shown as well as the software sculpture "SwarmDots" whose esthetical concept is related to the swarm behaviour of living creatures.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue and a CD of the concert Kopplungen.
