Bis einer heult.



Finally here's some documentation for my most recent art endeavour. I have a piece in this show 'Batman Elektronik' in Berlin right now. After not having had anything sculptural out for more than a year, this feels a bit like a comeback thing.

Bis einer heult

I'm not sure how and when I got inspired to build something out of inflatable weapons, but once I had them, I instantly felt the old love of materials and working with space again.

Inflatable Weapons

Also, my housemates were delighted when the first batch arrived:

I was surprised by how easy it actually was to glue those things together, but I didn't expect them to be made that badly. Over the course of building the sculpture, more or less every time I inflated it, I had to discover another seam that had cracked. A main offender was the gun I found this bizarre review for:

Instead of being 'pretty cool' as the lady here keeps insisting, this peace of shit had its seams ripping apart in different places at least 6-7 times, and of course it wasn't the only one doing that. Which meant that the sculpture most of the time deflated within minutes after being pumped up regardless of how many patches I'd already put on.

I thought of finding some automated solution for inflating it, but after some fruitless efforts of trying to find a strong enough electric pump, I decided to just do it by hand around every half hour during the private view. So if you happen to be in Berlin some time between now and the 19th of January, you're either gonna have to ask the gallery staff to inflate it for you or even better, do it yourself, to see it in all its glory...

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.

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.

Hamburg...



Well...

Playing to an audience of 5 (spread over the whole night).

We were quite good and the barman and the owner of the place really liked it.

Again, we got paid with beer and this time, we drank enough. Ernst Markus even a bit more than enough.

Apart from the gig, we were around a lovely bunch of people who made us feel very welcome. A very special Dankeschön goes to Monika and Ken. Next time I come to Hamburg, I'll call them directly.
