Monika Oechsler - Parallel States
12. Nov. 2004 bis 28. Feb. 2005

Monika Oechsler shows two interconnected video installations entitled Parallel States. The artist derives her material for Schauspiel (2003) and Ghost (2004) from the world of the theater, focussing on the process of preparation before the performance begins: the technically complicated and work-intensive set-up of the stage set. The construction of the space of illusion of the theater becomes the actual spectacle that Oechsler re-stages in the medium video as an experience of space - a reflection on reality and illusion, theater, film and art.

Monika Oechsler, born in Munich, lives in London. Following numerous international exhibitions, this is her first solo show in an Austrian museum. The work catalog "Monika Oechsler: Parallel Worlds" will be presented in conjunction with the exhibition. (ed. Lentos/Site Gallery, Sheffield)
