Artist stateMENT

I invent artistic concepts for installation art, performance art, and video art. I try to raise questions both on the authenticity and originality of art’s nature (and the allographic nature of digital arts in particular), as well as on the institutionalized context of art (the space, site, platform for art exhibition and distribution) and its corporatization/financialization in the culture industry. The duplication of the image and exclusion mechanisms are my central themes.

The first sin and possible crime is voyeurism. What are you doing now? Is the art gallery the legitimate place where we permit ourselves to be licensed voyeurs?

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.

Material description:

4-channel video installation: 4 DVD players and 4 beamers (or 4 television screens), only 1 channel with sound through boxes.
