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.
