Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


The Anonymous Sculptures exhibition featured ten international artists whose work addresses ephemeral video images and their sculptural presence in a space.Video and sculpture, which seem to be at opposite poles, engaged with each other in room installations to create a complex aesthetic interplay between image and object.In terms of content, they focussed on various socio-cultural tendencies in present-day society and the media-related, urban and ecological impact they make. This makes it possible to examine individual viewpoints and how these relate to an environment that has now become highly complex and shaped by a flood of pictorial information.The works, some site-specific and some formally closed, invited revision both of the history of video sculpture and of genre boundaries, and also reflection about the qualities and transparency of categories that are separate as such.The interplay of videographic and sculptural elements created complex pictorial spaces that trigger contradictory experiences in the field of tension between technology, nature, society and the individual.Published on the occasion of the exhibition Anonymous Sculptures: Video and Form in contemporary art at Galerie in Taxispalais, Innsbruck, Austria, February - May 2011.
