"der körpererfüllte Raum fort und fort : the body-filled space goes on and on"
2000-12-02 until 2001-03-04
O.K. Center of Contemporary Art
Linz, , AT Austria

-body-filled space goes on and on- is an exhibition at the nexus of theater and fine art. 11 international artists were invited to take a short autobiographical sketch (My Life) from the writings of Adalbert Stifter as impulse and starting point for an artistic reflection on the definition of the self, which is increasingly subject to disappearance, thus demanding new definitions from the artistic process. This text, in which the individual, the self, comprehends and defines itself through the surrounding space, is also the source of the title body-filled space goes on and on.

The exhibition is a joint project of the O.K Center for Contemporary Art and the Landestheater Linz. With Elisabeth Schweeger, artistic director of the Marstall in Munich, designated managing director of the Schauspielhaus Frankfurt and future commissioner for the Austrian contribution to the Venice Biennale, the exhibition is curated by an acknowledged expert.

Elisabeth Schweeger and Martin Sturm invited artists from various fields to set out on a journey to identity. As different as the works are, what they have in common is an exploration of the possibilities of perception: sensory, optical, acoustic, haptic. Artists arrange spaces, react to spaces, fill them with real or fictive persons, and turn visitors into actors, extras or observers.

Installations, single events and performative processes, sometimes lasting over the course of several weeks, comprise the compact program ranging not only in terms of content but also spatially between performing and fine arts.

Installations The external area of the O.K is already the starting point for Pauhof /A (Michael Hofstätter, Wolfgang Pauzenberger) to address the issues of surroundings. In this case, that is the immediate environment of art (or the O.K as a symbol for that) and its appropriation in commercial surroundings. A parking lot in front of the building, a separate label for each product - there is nothing left to hinder marketing.
