With “Hallo”, a performance by Marlen Wagner (German language only), Fraktalwerk Projektraum presents a new long-term project: Lost Places.
Fraktalwerk-Land art follows traces that connect past and future in a condensed present time. Thep articipants are interested in erosion, weathering, ageing, washes, decay, forgetting, displacement, overgrowth, paste over, rusting, dusting, degradation, erusion, wear, patination, use and consumption, ana- and metamorphosis, dissolution, transformation, misappropriation, withdrawal, fragmentation, breakage, fading, abrasion, usurpation, material fatigue, shrinkage, decay and disintegration.
We are interested in what is discarded and rejected, what is left behind, dropped, left lying and standing, forgotten, worn and used up, displaced, lost, discarded and segregated, marginalised, excluded, discarded and devalued, in the unused and the leftover, the misappropriated and the disfigured, the hidden and the concealed, the emptied and the silting up, the submerged and the buried, the damned and the fallen, the deserted and the abandoned.
Marlen Wagner has been working with her red ribbons since 2011: In performances she ties herself in – and tries to escape the entanglements and tensions …
Exposed situation posts transmit messages about the situation, like a message in a bottle thrown into the more of possibilities. Location posts are bottle posts, letters, objects, containers, boxes, cases, envelopes or bodies.
Landart: Marlen Wagner has been working with her red ribbons since 2011: In installations she entangles trees and driftwood and deadwood – in performances she ties herself in.
What other tensions will she find in the future?
Landart besagt, dass sich die Dinge schon finden werden. Gegenstände und Materialien stoßen zu: Sie werden gesammelt für den Augenblick und später wieder den Orten überlassen, an denen sie zugestoßen sind.
Robert Krokowski jokingly refers to his installations with brick fragments and erosion forms made of fired red clay as Lateritour. “Lateritour” is itself a portmanteau word and at the same time a paragram and an anagram.
