KUNZ & GLASER video sculpture

On invitation by Pro Helvetia (the Swiss Arts Council) and blank projects, the Swiss artists Daniel Glaser and Magdalena Kunz are spending some months as Artists-in-Residence in Cape Town.

Voices, the new project by Swiss artists Daniel Glaser and Magdalena Kunz , is a verbal geography that gives a voice to people to talk about their hopes and fears. At blank Glaser/Kunz will show a Talking Head, a video sculpture. From here the work will travel to Zimbabwe.

“A strength of the work by Daniel Glaser and Magdalena Kunz is related to the way in which viewers get confused about their own body perception; in fact, the movement of the images is invisible at first and then just barely perceptible so that we end up doubting our own bodily presence. In a way their images and sculptures are played out within this tension between reality and representation and between presence and absence.
When the viewer makes an effort to get synchronized with the work, it acquires an almost performative quality, giving life to a strange form of art in which the spectator becomes a discursive element in the transformation of meaning.” (Illaria Bonacossa, Curator at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo di Torino /contributor: Label Magazine, Turin and Contemporary, London).

Opening 18h00 Wednesday 16 April (closes 19 April)

  • Glaser/Kunz are exhibiting internationally and have recently shown some of their videosculptures, the Talking Heads, at various exhibitions in Europe .
