Gerome Johannes Gadient (CH)

Space is where everything starts. Be it the real, virtual, acoustic, imagined or what could possibly lie behind it. Bundled matter in which anything is impossible; the infinite number of digits between 0 and 1, lukewarm areas, the possibility to see everything in intervals, to take attitudes, to convey perspectives and directions. Time is what makes things perceivable. Be it memories, short durations, long instants, coincidence or an apparent theory of everything.

The strings are making a streamline to a spiral face that has been arranged into flesh with the dates of time strung invisible on the string like pearls/gestures of an unkempt bed of snow/linen where lay the images of death masks. A woman is proving that this movement is the message and the messenger based on a rising from within (an entire planetary system evolving from an embryo.)

Inspired by birth and death, the combination of real space with the intervention of uncanny placing of man-made visual, the installation will inhabit the presence and absence at the same moment.

“Swans” seems like a harmless and naive name for the radical yet subtle intervention in nature accomplished by this work. Irony is a clearly recognizable element of this installation made from eight satellite dishes, seven white and one black, obvious waste elements of our society representing the power of mainstream TV and mass media. Brought to life by sound, wind and water, these animals float peacefully in a pond, merging perfectly with the nature surrounding them.
