Takt Kunstprojektraum presents the Summer Artists in Residency Group Exhibition:
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.

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.
