Experimental music legend Hans-Joachim Roedelius and his daughter, object artist Rosa Roedelius, will be joining the young
Belgian DJ and musician DARKO* on 2 November to stage a unique collaborative project for the final CAT OPEN of 2010.The installation meerraum [sea-space] makes a theme of various spatialcontexts interaction both at their interfaces and in their peripheral zones.A border is always also an imaginary attribute: it exists, and it doesnt exist, just like the sea as a metaphor
for infinite distance and depth, says the artist, whose objectswhich are often set up outdoors, such as on the
island of Lanzarote allude to the individuals being subjected natural forces. Inside the Flak tower, Roedelius
will lend focus to the space, to its curvature and coloration, while also focusing the visitors perception thereof.
Her objets blancs (monochrome white sculptures) evoke both intentional and random associations and attributions, as well as
figurative interpretations and narrative references.The spherical musical intervention by Hans-Joachim Roedelius usesinterferences between overlapping sound sequences to throw up a blanket of sound, swelling and receding like waves,
which will set the seemingly static object-situation in motion. Following his performance, Roedelius will join DARKO* in guiding
the interaction of fifty years of electronic music. Both composers work at the interfaces between present-day developments,
using reduction as the very means by which they advance into new territory. In his minimalist excursions into electronic sounds,
DARKO* concentrates on so-called psychoactive frequencies which he extemporizes upon using looped peaks, ultimately
achieving a unique degree of interactivity between listeners and the music.In the event series CAT OPEN, which takes place as part of MAK NITE at the MAK Contemporary Art Depot in the Arenbergpark Flak Tower, artists are invited
to confront the special space of the historic Flak tower location while at the same time being challenged to reflect upon
the visionary idea of a constantly expanding and growing art location as has been planned for the CAT Contemporary
Art Tower project.
