Takt Kunstprojektraum presents the Summer Artists in Residency Group Exhibition:

BLICKPUNKT/VIEWPOINT

A point of view is an attitude of how one sees or thinks of something.The usage is synonymous with perspective. In art, we the viewer are presented with a point of view. The artists point of view is synonymous with his/her perspective of life.

Our knowledge about reality is often relative to a certain point of view. Our concept of a picture and model is multifunctional and ambiguous and judged by certain traditions and morals. Robert A. Wilson is of the opinion that “every individual interprets the same world differently, hence: truth is in the eye of the beholder.

The artists in this show have made art works from their specific view points using various styles and techniques. Humbold argued that language was part of the creative adventure of mankind and speech is inherently and implicitly creative. The onlooker comes to an art work with a specific view. It is up to the artist to state his/hers, and perhaps even changes that of the viewer.

Carla Effa   

An architect and artist from Chile, currently based in Berlin. Through her work she attempts to generate objects that defy the perception of the viewer while experimenting with planes and volumes. Optical and/or kinetic pieces strive to configure space using as components color, light (natural or artificial) and movement. The role of the viewer is fundamental in her work, being the one who activates and explores these variables.

Primarily sculptural, her work is a continuous discovery and understanding of space, that space which is touching us directly and in a constant state of flux. Materials used in the work, become objects, assemblages or installations, aiming to create a fluid transaction of their physical and inner realities and relational qualities, challenging the viewer’s relation to object, space and time.

Makiko Yamamoto 

Makiko Yamamoto (based in Melbourne, Australia) deconstructs the materiality of the human (((voice))) through its position in relation to the body, language, subject and other. Utilising awkwardness to expose the vulnerabilities of the social and ideological codes in spoken language. Applying these ideas as triggers for sound-based recordings, digital video and text-based works, she creates psychological spatial relationships between the viewer and the site.
