Night shift revisited



It's been close to a year now since I had the Night Shift show at Simon Oldfield Gallery. Yesterday, I was surprised in a very very nice way by Rebecca Helen Page, who has filmed bits of the performance I've done there and uploaded them to Vimeo.

It was quite a noisy performance with very weird sound and I had very short hair at that time.

The desk I had my instruments on was absolutely gorgeous. It felt like my own private TARDIS.

Thanks a lot Rebecca.

die gute Situation machen



So begab es sich denn, dass ich mich mal wieder in meiner letzten Wahlheimat Offenbach einfand, folgend dem Ruf des sehr umtriebigen Herrn Jos Diegel, der hier und anderswo seine Kunst in unzähligen Formen unters Volk wirft.

Eine neuerliche Kollaboration war längst angesagt und lange angedacht und endlich nun also wird das, was sich in unseren Köpfen zusammenschwurbelte, seinen Weg in die Außenwelt finden. Und das geht dick rein.

Sonntag, den 1. Jilu 2012:

"DIE GUTE SITUATION ZUM SONNTAG"
DER WARST und ROTER MALER STADTLICHKEIT

Was gibt es schon besseres zu tun, wenn sich alles ins Innere verlegt, als eine Situation zum rausgucken. Zu einer wirklich gemeinsamen ernst gemeinten Sache treffen sich zwei zu einer Übung, nicht im Freien, aber im Vorstellbaren. Diese Sache ändert sich dann stündlich. Die Fortsetzung der Immobilie mit anderen Mitteln, das mobile Haus wandert mit der Sonne oder mit uns. Eine asymmetrische multimediale Präsenz wegen, zu, auf, für und gegen die Rhetorik der Stadt, die wir nicht sind.

So ab 5-6 Uhr bis ein paar Stunden später, wir haben ja Zeit.

In der Nähe des Unicampus Bockenheim in Frankfurt (mehr lässt sich zur Ortsbestimmung noch nicht sagen. kommt einfach dahin, ihr findet das dann schon). Könnt auch schon früher kommen, Da gibts nämlich das Sommerfest vom Kulturcampus Frankfurt und mithin einiges zu sehen und tun und so.

Gut gut.


English:

I'm back in my last chosen Hometown Offenbach to finally pursue a long due cooperation with the very busy Mister Jos Diegel.

Sunday 1. Jylu 2012:

"THE GOOD SITUATION ON SUNDAY"
DER WARST and RED PAINTER URBANITYTHING

surprisingly accurate Google translation:

What is there to do better when it's all moved into the interior, as a situation to watch out. For a really common thing seriously meant to take two of an exercise, not outside, but the unimaginable. This matter will then change every hour. The continuation of the property by other means, the mobile home moves with the sun or with us. An asymmetric multi-media presence due to, on, for and against the rhetoric of the city that we are not.

Its gonna start around 5-6 and will go on for a few hours. Near the Unversity Campus Bockenheim in Frankfurt. Just go there, You'll find it eventually.

You can also come earlier for the summerfest of Kulturcampus Frankfurt, as there are going to be plenty of other nice things to see and do and stuff.

Good Good.

Eva hat den Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen!



Trotz aller persönlichen Angelegenheiten, die ich hier nicht weiter erörtern möchte, ist es doch sehr schön, wenn nahestehenden Menschen gutes widerfährt.

filmstill n gschichtn

Mit einer seltsamen Mischung aus Stolz, Schmerz und Freude weise ich also hier mal darauf hin, dass Eva Beckers wunderbarer Film n gschichtn, über den ich auch hier das eine oder andere mal berichtete, letzte Woche verdientermaßen den dann doch nicht ganz unbedeutenden Hessischen Filmpreis gewonnen hat.

---english---

Besides all the personal issues that I won't go into any deeper, it is great when nice things happen to the ones close to you.

It is with a strange mix of joy, pride and pain for me to announce that Eva Becker's wonderful Film n arratives has won the Hessische Filmpreis last week.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch.

Night Shift

Katy Kirbach & Simon Schäfer

 

SimonOldfield
 

Private View
7 September 2011, 18.30 — 20.30
 

Exhibition continues to
28 September 2011


Night Shift explores the relationship between painting, sculpture and performance with new work by Simon Schäfer and Katy Kirbach.  

The exhibition examines the tension between the handmade and ready-made; multiplicity and uniqueness; live event and still object; the diurnal and nocturnal.  Night Shift is visually and aurally layered with texture, sound, digital feeds, colour and analogue electronics.
