Exhibition 'CLUSTER' by Kurt Hentschläger
The Office Gallery in cooperation with the Austrian Embassy presents at The Office Gallery in Nicosia the Chicago based Austrian artist Kurt Hentschläger with his work CLUSTER. This internationally acclaimed artist creates audiovisual performances and installations and began to exhibit his work during the 80's, creating surreal machine-objects, and since has been working with time-based media, film, video, animation and sound.
CLUSTER, the next generation of Kurt Hentschläger's generative 3D and audio work, is moving the focus onto group behavior -psychology and interaction-, particularly looking at swarm phenomena. A simple yet absurd setting is proposed - 3D human characters appear as a school of fish in otherwise impossible physical conditions. In the weightless choreography of "Cluster" humans appear mostly as anonymous particles, as a pulsing, amorphous mass, a cloud of blurry matter from body parts and light. The work is visually fluctuating between realistic and abstract forms.
The exhibition will be opened on Friday, 10 May 2013 at 8 p.m. by Amabassador Karl Mueller, at The Office Gallery (32 Kleanthi Christophides Str., 1011 Nicosia within the walls), a cocktail reception will follow.
The exhibition will be on display until the May 31st (Monday - Saturday, from 19:00 - 21:30 hrs, closed on Sundays).
