David Muth’s single channel video Footnote#01: Sipilänmäki (2016) will be installed in a group exhibition Raumkonzepte (Spatial Concepts) in Fotogalerie Wien. Open from April 25 to May 27, the exhibition is concerned with the structures and defining characteristics of space, spatial organisation but also with the dissolution of space and thus sounding out its boundaries.
The images of the video “Footnote #01: Sipilänmäki” seem to stand still: only occasionally a ever so slight breeze in the air causes barely noticeable movements in the vegetation – little shakes that reveal the filmic nature of the source material. A cluster of brightly-lit greenhouses appears to function on a fully-automated basis. Otherwise darkness. Both operators as well as beneficiaries of this structure are absent.
David Muth is an artist, musician and programmer. Having grown up in Salzburg, Austria, he relocated to the UK to study at Middlesex University, where he received an MA in Digital Arts. He currently lives and works in Turku and Vienna. His artistic practice combines conceptual and experimental approaches and is informed by his background in architecture. His projects range from installations and responsive environments, through video and experimental documentary, to composition and performance of music. Muth’s work has been shown on numerous occasions internationally, with venues and events including the Musée d’Art Contemporain in Montreal, the Kiasma Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, Ars Electronica in Linz, ISEA2006 in San Jose, Le Cube in Paris, Montevideo in Amsterdam, Laboral in Gijón, SIGGRAPH2009 in New Orleans and the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid. He also teaches at Goldsmiths and the Royal College of Art.
