Crista Brandstaetter

Endloskonzept

24.03.-30.05.2006



Reflections about her own self, the fragile female body and its mirroring functions serve as the starting point for the new work on the BIX media façade. Crista Brandstaetter succeeds in releasing a dialogue dealing with the subjects of people and the media as well as body and space in the city while turning the façade into both the carrier and the antagonist of an idiosyncratically alienating self portrait.


The BIX concept was initiated and developed by the Berlin based architects realities:united, and it operates as a matrix of 930 fluorescent lamps integrated into the eastern Plexiglas façade of the Kunsthaus Graz, an outstanding example of biomorphic architecture, conceived by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier. Through the possibility to individually adjust the lamps' brightness at an infinite variability with 20 frames/second images, films and animations can be displayed.
The BIX media installation and the Kunsthaus' architecture share a strong symbiotic relationship. The façade as a display extends the communication range of the Kunsthaus, complementing its programmatically formulated communicative purpose. In an abstract and mediated form the media façade transmits the internal processes of the Kunsthaus out into the public.
