For the Transmediale 2012 Competition: At the Speed of Life (2012)

At the Speed of Life (2012) by LCVS                                                               Transmediale 2012

At the Speed of Life (2012) is a visual language game. It is a video installation which questions the overload of visual data in our information society. Umberto Eco has stated that to silence critique one was formerly being excluded from information, but that nowadays one is overloaded with information. Amidst all this data one cannot adequately filter crucial information anymore. In this way the dominant producers of the info overload leave one helpless alone. At the Speed of Life (2012) tries to anticipate on this. It explores whether speedily blended visual data can create new powerful singular images, which go beyond all former meanings and bear their own truths.

For the Transmediale 2012 Competition: Untitled (2011)

Untitled (2011) by LCVS

Untitled (2011) is a video/slide show installation with a slide projection next to a video loop. The slides have been found at a garbage dump on the street in Amsterdam. The slides contain intimate footage of everyday life during the late 70s begin 80s in the Netherlands mixed with images of anonymous Dutch on holiday in France. Simultaneously the video loop shows the street scene at which the slides as objet trouvés have been collected.  The video also features some slides which become visible held against the light of the blue sky.

For the Transmediale 2012 Competition: Blue Dutch (2011)

Blue Dutch (2011) by LCVS

Blue Dutch (2011) is an art video. It is made while playing with simple editing techniques and subverting chronology.

The senseless text which accompanies the work is:

‘This work could also be titled ―a reconstruction of the objet trouvé in blue minor. Conversely, the video of the dead-end sea in perspective becomes, by means of optical effect, the extension of the sky and resembles a virtual passage to the beach. This sort of spatial installations engages nobody and generates additional symbolic but unnecessary and insuperable meaning.

For the Transmediale 2012 Competition: FVGP (2009-2011)

Friendly Video Graffiti Project  (2009 – 2011) by LCVS

For the FVGP I intervened into numerous exhibition spaces around the world (Basel, Jakarta, Istanbul, Vienna, London, Zurich, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Oslo, Berlin, San Francisco, Brussels, Yogyakarta, and New York) by illicitly taking a DVD of video art out of the DVD player and replacing it with my own DVD.  I did not steal nor break the original, but left it intact on top of the DVD player and only added mine to the exhibition. I briefly filmed my intervention in single shot take and then fled from the exhibition space. Thereupon I intervened into a next exhibition, again illicitly installed my DVD with the footage of the former intervention, taped it in single shot take and then fled. With each successful intervention that followed, all previous filmed interventions were projected in the exhibition space.

With my intervention I contemplate on video art as open platform, what are the ingredients which make video art actually video art? Can it contain more than one beforehand fixed image? Therefore I question the tactile space which is its social environment, the device which is its heart, and the disc which is its soul. For example, the soul: I question the concealed status of artistic images on a DVD disc. Is the DVD disc only recognized as a work of art if the images which it contains are visible and shown in the exhibition space? Or is it also a work of art if it is just a regular DVD disc that lays on the ground without its images being visible for the viewer? Who or what decides the ultimate status of a DVD as work of art; the curator, the artist, the visitor, or an anonymous DVD player?

At the OK.Video 5th Jakarta International Video Festival (October 6-17, 2011) I experimented for the first time with illicitly tagging three art videos using a USB-stick, yet the questions remain the same.

 

Work description:

‘Friendly Video Graffiti Project‘ (2009-2011), FVGP in short, can be shown as a 4-channel video installation. On each channel a different sequence of the FVGP video is running. In this way the viewer who is comparing the images on the 4 screens can grasp the concept behind FVGP immediately. The best effect is created with 4 beamers projecting 4 life-size images next to each other in a dark room with only 1 channel with sound through boxes. Otherwise 4 television screens next to each other will also do.

Info for the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid 2012 Competition: Tirai Cinta

Tirai Cinta (2010) means the Curtain of Love, and is a traditional dangdut song from Indonesia describing the impossible love between the poor and the rich. L.C. von Sukmeister films everyday life scenes in the poor village and more unusual high elite scenes in the rich city, balancing between these two worlds his identity as Western artist with Eastern roots is lost and the films as archive of remembrance remain.

 

Hantu – Plaster Surrogates

You stopped speaking to me and you must have your reasons. Is it for my own good? So that I might suffer less if something should happen? These are such uncertain times. I cannot bear the silence. I love you, And I told you before that I am not afraid of communicating with you through other people. You told me that the ears are the only orifice that cannot be closed. I love you. I love you. I love you. And I am passing these words out in the hope that they might find their way to you.

SBY- Six Mile Bottom

Over a short period of time (from 29 to 30 November 2010) L.C. von Sukmeister developed a body of work marked by recurring themes such as appropriating titles of famous works of art, and appropriating art historical texts putting them in place for his own works of art. In many of his Tirai Cinta (2010) films the artist plays the role of an impassive character who abandons his Western self to the effects of Eastern life experiences. The development of this artistic figure resembles the determination of a dandy in applying a set of drastic rules to his life which question the current socio-cultural norms.

Mati – Factum II

In Mati – Factum II (2010) L.C. von Sukmeister films the chicken hunt, through this unsensual and macabre ritual, he reclaims a recurring motif of every day life: Food. Which reminds the viewer that death strikes all animals regardless of their condition and religion. Behind the harshness of this observation, the artist becomes aware of a vital transcendental force which he aestheticizes through both the filing of the event and attaching a Palais de Tokyo text for A. Mendieta to it.

Keris – Catalysis III

L.C. von Sukmeister his latest project Tirai Cinta (2010) evolves around existential questions pertaining to life, death, good, evil. Through video his work offers a sensory experience. Von Sukmeister draws inspiration from everyday materials, such as the Keris Jawa, actions or language. In 2010 he made Keris – Catalysis III (2010) in secret collaboration with the artist Ki Manteb, sitting prominently on stage.

Bekel – Memory of the Good Old Time

L.C. von Sukmeister has been producing acerbic and uncompromising artwork since 2005. Using heterogeneous objects and situations through video, the artist creates unusual and caustic new video sensations. Von Sukmeister develops his work with trashy and ironic composure. The trappings of textual appropriation are the artist his playground in which he searches for roots of contemporary ennui.

VIP – 3 Figurationszeichen

The Dusun/Kota artist L.C. von Sukmeister created his pseudonym by combining his nickname and the we will see master craftsmanship. In 2009 LCVS did not walk an art critic through the streets of Vienna on a leash, rather he walked with a pocket full of Friendly Video Graffiti Project DVD’s through museums and galleries. L.C. von Sukmeister is an iconic member of the NAVA movement (New Art Video Appropriation) that developed during 2008 and 2009.

“I created my own name, but I never could create my own identity. It shifts from one point to another. It is not stable.”

Beyond a certain violence towards or tamper with video installations, a critical and thorough examination of what constitutes video art, in both tangible forms as well as digitally, forms the basis of his practice. In the series of Tirai Cinta (2010) L.C. von Sukmeister confronts the architecture of the home video with the form of textual appropriation. While the art of construction is generally associated with mathematics, the artist presents his direct surroundings as a unit of measurement rooted in Western art history, and in the history of Indonesian everyday life politics.

Marah – Untitled

L.C. von Sukmeister subverts the traditional schema of the ready-made video, the home video. While Duchamp transposed reality to a symbolic order, the Dusun/Kota artist L.C. von Sukmeister engages in the opposite process. In 2009 he began to start tagging art videos in his Friendly Video Graffiti Project (2009-):

“My first ideas in 2005 were too expensive. My second ideas were not possible to realize. So I saw myself ending up with conceptual art in a simple video sauce.”

Through impotence or regression, attitude or a program, and calling on a variety of stories taken from art historical texts as well as popular custom, LCVS creates a system of absence ―of both immediately recognizable artistic practice and supposedly critical thought.

Info for the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid 2012 Competition: The Money Shot

Walking from nightmare, I found myself upon a dismal frame story amongst dead images of cannibalizing new art video appropriation, dirty money barely hold together by museum pins and the pieces of vertical colour striped wallpaper. A young brunette kneeled nearby, her mouth was eating my tangible thoughts and melancholic memories of MAMCO’s museum space. Observer, take comfort from this: In the Art Abattoir, at least the lascivious ones are contented. For my part, I begged that she should take my Money, thus sparing me further horrifying emptiness. Unheeded, I stood in the museum space and wept, unable to bear my circumstances. Eventually tears ceased. My misfortunes were small: I was a X-Stream Dadaist and Alive.. And I knew, that life had no worse Images to offer me.

In the case of sexually based intimacy, the relationship of symbiotic base to symbolic generalization takes on particular traits which is illustrated in The Money Shot (2009). Initially this basis in sexuality explains why the protagonists set such great store on ‘absorbing each other’, on immediacy and closeness; and why they prefer to be in places where they can hope to see much lust arousing commodity art. Furthermore, it is peculiar to sexual relations that they are not realized with curious outsiders or their approval in mind. Instead they are meaningful in themselves and their further refinement does not require the surreptitious outside world.

How shall I describe her? She was horrible, like no brunette I’d ever heard tell of with skin neither pale nor wholly sun-tanned, but a subtle fair. Further, she was entangled in my Money. Terrified more she should re-submerge and drag me with her, I stood forcefully clutching the camera that had snapped off in my hand. The girl’s stained marble eye looked up at me.. And, in that instant, we knew each other! Half finished; half dead; wholly deranged by video agony; the hungry leviathan attempted to eat all of my X-Stream Dadaist practices, dragging my new art video appropriations in its bloody wake. I hung on, desperately cursing in the bitter stinging spray.. And shortly thereafter stopped filming.
