Exhibition Opening: 24. Juli 2014, 19 Uhr
Introduction: Hildegund Amanshauser (Salzburg)
Exhibition Duration: 25. 7. − 13. 9. 2014
Das Haus is a new work that deepens the exploration of sculptural architecture that Aglaia Konrad conducted with the series of 16mm films Concrete and Samples. Shot in the house of architect Juliaan Lampens in Sint-Martens-Latem (Belgium), the film resumes the artist's interest on the possibilities of the cinematic medium to generate − rather than capture − an architectural experience. An experience which, in this film, surpasses the visual to mobilize bodily perception and even desire.
Das Haus (ausgestellt) is on show at the Fotohof as part of a spatial installation. The exhibition architecture was created in co-operation with Belgian architect Kris Kimpe.
The film was produced by Auguste Orts (Brussels) and co-produced by Courtisane (Ghent), with Aglaia Konrad (editor) and Sébastien Koeppel (director of photography). The project was supported by the Flanders Audiovisual Fund, Netwerk / Centre for Contemporary Art, UGent (Vakgroep Architectuur & Stedenbouw, Afdeling Communicatie, Afdeling Facilitair Bureau), LUCA Sint-Lukas Brussels, Stichting Juliaan Lampens, Fotohof Salzburg, and Provincie Oost-Vlaanderen.
