F-holes is a group exhibition laid-out as an environment which seeks to re-evaluate relationships between the art object and the sonic object. It displays works of artists and musicians and of some who identify as both or in between.
HHDM – Hinter Haus des Meeres is an artist run space founded by Daphne Ahlers, Roland Mathias Gaberz and Philipp Timischl in April 2012. The permanent space located in Vienna was closed in 2014, since then HHDM operates in a less frequent more project based manner.
Dear sirs or mesdames,
Please allow us to further introduce Bodies of Work and their participants. We, as a group of bodies that work, explore not only the boundary between fashion and art, the boundary between individual artistic positions, but we question it.
The exhibition shows artistic positions around fashion design, textile design, installation, video and photography that might be separated from one another but are deeply connected in their very origins – because there is no monologue without dialogue and vice versa. Bodies of Work is not to be mistaken for just another juxtaposition, but it is a compilation, an allegory.
May we ask you now to paint a picture with us, and to keep it simple we are going to do a realistic portrait. We start off in the middle of the canvas - beginning with the nose, we will then continue to fully build the eyes, the lips and so on... until our brush passed the cheeks and arrived at the jaw – only at this point we will start to outline.
Now, having finished our portrait, we want to adopt the outlines to make a skirt out of it. Therefore we will first have to flip the outline horizontal and adjust the measurements to our basic pattern, referring to the size we want the skirt in as well as the volume we want to create. We then copy our pattern onto our fabric (double silk satin to enable volume) and before cutting and sewing it, we will even draw the facial shapes on it.
At this point, let us ask ourselves if the skirt is made upon the model or the portrait? And, besides the medium, what is left there to differ the skirt from the painting? Those questions seem to be quite trivial and might as well even tiring, but they lead us to one important subject: is there even something beyond interdisciplinarity? Something, that is not somehow connected?
