Frequencies of identity

Guided tour
9/5 2024 5:30 pm

Every second and fourth Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm you can discover the exhibition Rene Matić / Oscar Murillo. JAZZ. together with our art educators and discuss the context and background of the exhibited works.

The guided tours are free of charge and will be held in German.

With: Carola Fuchs  Andrea Hubin • Michaela Lankes  Michael Simku • Daliah Touré  Martin Walkner

Encompassing painterly gestures, installation, film, photography, and sound, each element on show is in dialogue, shaped by Murillo’s black canvas installation. Together, through dissection and reconciliation, both artists explore the impossibilities and contradictions that arise from notions of desire, visibility and opacity. JAZZ. nods to concepts of desire, of consumption of the Other, it plays with performativity while retaining the right to opacity.

In the long-term project Frequencies, various fragments of material create a composite ground and represent frequencies of different identities, so to speak. Murillo covers tables in schools around the world with canvases for pupils to paint, draw and doodle freely. The resulting works become an index of a period of time in the students’ lives.
