We are Sitting in Different Rooms(a sketch)

In 1969, Alvin Lucier performed his piece I am Sitting in a Room for the first time. The American composer reads aloud a few sentences, records them on tape, plays the tape, records it, plays the recording, records it again and again. What, in the beginning, is understandable speech becomes an eerie wave of tones resonating in relation to a space (the room). A rather meditative piece, the recited text simply describes the process in action and slowly turns into an abstraction. At the same time highly conceptual but truly moving and beautiful, the artwork leaves in tatters the traditional definitions of words like recording, instrument, notation, space or performance.

Lucier knew that the recording of his piece would be listened to in a different place than the one he was performing in and started his speech with the sentence: ‘I am sitting in a Room different from the one you are in now…’ In our times of self-isolation and social distancing, this whole composition gets a brand-new meaning. We listen to music, we look at artworks, we share words, but we aren’t sitting together anymore to do so. And the messages or acts of communication between us sound - sometimes - distorted and abstract.

The five artists featured at the exhibition have been chosen for their interaction with space, time and architecture while playing with figuration and abstraction. – Thibaut de Ruyter

WVZ 604, 605, 606, 607, 608, 609, 2020. Installation with collages, dimensions variable

In her installations and collages, Barbara Breitenfellner (Kufstein, 1969) relates to the art world and spaces as they appear in dreams and translates them into visual material. She works around distortion and metamorphosis as we experience them in our nocturnal activities. For this exhibition she composed new collages inspired by Lucier using a modern chair, an anechoic chamber, a distant human presence.

To Vanish (Sketch 1), 2019 / 2020. Site-specific installation, virtually transferred. Acrylic paint, painting fabric, wood, inkjet prints, acryl glass, building brick, tape 800 x 600 x 400 cm

Heike Gallmeier (Berlin, 1972) builds and constructs spaces in her studio which she then photographs. The construction (installation) is made to be shot from a specific point of view and often creates optic illusions like the forced perspective in the Galleria Spada by Borromini. Her installation in the virtual Gallery Barbara Thumm, fragmented and colourful, recomposes the room and is not even afraid to open a window in the White Cube..

Speech Therapy, 2020. 4 channel sound installation, 4:08 minutes, WAV-file

Farhad Farzaliyev (Baku, 1989) is a sound artist who merges traditional culture, popular aesthetics and contemporary music to comment on his own geopolitical situation in a country from the former Soviet Union. As a child he, like Lucier during the recording of I am Sitting in a Room, had a speech impediment and did some exercises to improve his pronunciation. They are the source of his participation in this exhibition

Mask I, 2020. Print on transparent papers, mounted in cardboard, size variable

Marie Rief (Berlin, 1987) draws architectural elements of an obvious banality: a plastic window, a standard door handle, a fluorescent tube. The different bits of drawings made on several pieces of tracing paper, are assembled and superimposed, laid onto photographic paper and then open light imprints a unique composition.
