Reset unsettling flesh layers: preview

What do machines, coal mines, Asian culture, and the Amazon have to do with each other?

The artists of PILOTENKUECHE International Art Program have been busy installing their first show. The result is elegant and thought provoking. You won’t want to miss it.

PK RD41: Upcoming Shows

The studio is alive with creative energy. All those who came to our Open Studios (Designers Open Spot) last weekend were able to see the work in progress and talk to the artists. Those who couldn’t, don’t fear. We have two shows coming up and each has its own special flair.

This exhibition represents the accumulation of ever-accelerating rhythms in the altermodern
world and the momentum of regeneration. A spiralling ascension of energy followed by the
shedding of skin and matter, folding backwards into grey foundations of urban displacement.
There is a convergence of ancient forests and radiant future seed particles, mapping
migratory paths through time and space. The body is but a site of irrational experience which
confronts the machines of carbon-heavy Modernity.
A Kali-destructive rampage of nihilism anticipates the coming still; hyper-sensitising rituals,
filament tensions and porous-smooth materiality of the posthuman condition. This is an
emerging non-state where the more-than-human world metamorphoses in perpetuum into a
new corporeal becoming. The uncontaminated hierarchs falter and drop from the sky.

From nonmatter emerges poetic spaces of nothingness. This spatial emptiness waxes dark
mass and a new spiritual gestation. A coded dialogue is written in the deep seams of carbon,
bearing the deconstruction of material and nonlinear points of multiplicity. Sharp angles
mutate into gentle recesses, energised with the properties of light and the intimacy of a
dream.

The pleasure in the surge of viscosity, and the illusion of vulnerability creates a space
between people, an assemblage which orientates the human to positive kinetic chaos.

Artist spotlight: Daniela Trinkl

Daniela Trinkl is fascinated by boxes. For the Viennese-based ceramicist, this interest extends to boxes of any kind, but is heightened by reliquary shrines. She is interested in science fiction, animism and bringing life to inanimate entities. Daniela not only finds the craftmanship of these objects remarkable, but also the spiritual value that people assign to them. She firmly believes that there is a 5th incorporeal dimension that is present in every art piece, but is not yet directly observable.

In Daniela’s PILOTENKUECHE atelier I find almost embryo like shaped objects. They stand alone or are exhibited on the wall. And true to form, some can be found in liquid filled boxes, some submerged in a synthetic pink hued silicone and others in milky epoxy resin. It almost looks like a laboratory of a modern-day alchemist, where these creatures will soon come to life. 

To give birth to these objects Daniela plays with common natural materials such as clay and porcelain, as well as with man-made ones, bringing Sci-fi aesthetics to the table. Contrary to reliquary shrines that carry memories from past lives, her creations might come from the future. One could say that they are living beings, but from a different world, perhaps like ambassadors of the 5th dimension.

Her working approach is very organic, she starts by simply doing, thus inviting a flow of ideas and letting herself be guided and carried. She also mentions that the shape of an object does not always come in a visual form, it is almost as she can feel it within herself. It arrives from within, yet from somewhere outside. In her eyes, the artist functions almost as a medium, bringing something celestial to the world. In a way every art piece embodies an element, or a message hidden in a plain sight.  

Daniela stresses the importance of symbiosis between an art piece and its consumers. In fact, the interaction with the audience is the most interesting part for her, regardless the reaction or an absence thereof.
