recover

Brigitte Kowanz

For her new work “recover”, Brigitte Kowanz transfers the individual letters of the word into reflective ribbons of different widths, which loop around the trees on Raiffeisenplatz. To convert the letters, Kowanz relies on a type of linguistic transmission that revolutionized human communication around 1840 with short and long tactile, acoustic or visual signals: Morse code. This type of linguistic coding and decoding is considered a forerunner and pioneer of our digital communication. “Recover” is brought to life when the visitors with headlamps first make the Morse code visible through reflection.

Infinity Steps

Brigitte Kowanz

For more than three decades, the Austrian artist Brigitte Kowanz has been developing her own sculptural language of forms in her multimedia works, which is not afraid to challenge the world of concrete properties through the immateriality of light. Her “Infinity Steps” create their own universe in seemingly endless repetition. In the 60 x 60 x 60 cm large glazed cube, reflective surfaces and neon writing are coordinated in such a way that the beginning and the end, the object and the image seem to be permanently detached. The perfect play with the reflection multiplies the physical space and translates it into virtual scenes that are recreated depending on the perspective.

Spielzeit: Täglich von 19 bis 12 Uhr.

GIANT DUNDU

DUNDU

DUNDU, the giant of light, will pay a visit to Feldkirch’s old town on his journey around the globe. Surrounded by the sound world of the kora, an ancient West African harp used to accompany story-telling, he crouches his gigantic figure through the medieval passageways and marvels with us at the projects on the Lichtstadt tour. The world’s largest freely manipulable doll is brought to life in perfect coordination with its five players through seemingly human movements. The glowing, gentle giant takes us on a fairy-tale journey. Join us and be surprised!

Lichtstadt Feldkirch Brückenjahr 2019 Neon Golden Circle

CIRCLE

NEON GOLDEN

Light and sound merge in “CIRCLE” into an intense audio-visual experience. Columns of light set in a circle light up in a choreographed interplay with a specially created sound arrangement. The viewer’s own body and the surrounding architectural space become integral parts of the installation. By composing all the elements, the artist collective NEON GOLDEN creates a spatial perception of immaterial media.

Cubed Dream

artificalOwl

The central Marktgasse in Feldkirch’s old town is transformed by Jan Raphael Knieza’s Swiss artist collective artificialOwl. The immersive interplay of light, fog and sound extends from the walk-in five-metre-high cube into the height of the medieval lane. In the fleetingness of the moment we experience the transformation of our concrete reality into a dreamlike transience of mystical beauty.

Parasite

David Reumüller

David Reumüller’s new installation “Parasite” celebrates its premiere in Feldkirch.

The Austrian artist lays bare the most varied forms of individual reality and physical transformation by interlacing two spaces. The concrete architecture of the intertwined found wood nestles parasitically against the façade and forms the sketchy framework for the digital level. The 5 x 8 m screen shows an infinitely continued pattern, which is first brought to life, exposed and interpreted when the viewers enter the picture. Their own shadows create virtual alter egos, which amidst the current drive for improvised image cultivation and self-optimization has the effect of creating a metaphorical identity.

Arkestra of Light

OchoReSotto

The Graz-based artist group OchoReSotto is internationally known for strikingly choreographed multimedia installations. Intensive occupation with the location, the existing structures and architectures gives them a keen sense of undiscovered or invisible potential, which they translate into a language of light with the help of skilful projection technology, ranging from analogue to digital, from film to mapping. From abstract image inventions to figural narrative moments, each of their installations is as unique as the places where they are created. For Lichtstadt Feldkirch 2021, OchoReSotto is developing a new extensive work for the Neustadt, Alte Dogana and Schattenburg.

PORTAL

NEON GOLDEN

An almost five-metres high “PORTAL” leads to another sphere. To enter physically is not only impossible but also unnecessary. The immersive effect is able to replace your own present with another, digital reality. The Austrian artist collective NEON GOLDEN develops this abstract dimensional leap in a finely choreographed, fascinating and overwhelming interplay of light effects and sound so as to send our senses on a journey into a new world of seeing and feeling.
