Josef Dabernig works at the interface between theory and research, weaves documentary and fictive elements of a potential
reality into analytical, abstract ideas.
The installation arranged for dramatic effect into a gallery of gymnastics has been developed specially
for the MAK Gallery (07.04.12.09.2010) as a projection room for the film of the same name and for an accessible environment
of sports equipment, as well as for photographic allusions to specific works of architecture. At the center of the film are
six actors who carry out simple exercises in a Viennese institution. In this case, it is less about achievement, more about
an existential relationship with ones body. Communication is frozen in this tableau-like staging into the geometry of
gestures and looks.
