Saturday 19th September, 12 – 6pm
Collectively, Versatorium will spend an afternoon at the Galerie Martin Janda to translate, read in and with Gego’s posthumously published lines and writings Sabiduras (Wesheiten). The translators will be present and establish various participatory models (maybe spanning above the distance of a Baby-Elephant but below that of three grown-up Elderfants perfectly aligned trunk to tail). Versatorium * Gego will concern itself with exploring, reading, transmitting and transletting lines (Leinen los) in Gego's Sabiduras. Everybody is welcome to tune in and out at trunk-to-tail range.
I believe that it is necessary that you do not think of this course as a sequence of tasks following certain steps.
I want to explain my ideas by presenting [...]

Austrian Sculpture Park, 19.05.2019, 2 pm
Jun Yang was awarded the Artist in Residence prize at the Austrian Sculpture Park for 2019. Starting from the myth that Marco Polo brought back to Europe from his trips to China knowledge about how to make ice and preserve it in summer, the artist reconstructs this traditional method. An ice block was buried in the Austrian Sculpture Park in November 2018 and will be dug up again at the Spring Celebration on May 19th, 2019.
Yang decided to make a children’s book rather than a catalog to accompany the project. He invited the Japanese children’s book illustrator Yuuki Nishimura to illustrate the publication. More on the book: The Emperor of China’s Ice
More on the project:
At the Austrian Sculpture Park to the south of Graz at the end of November 2018, an ice block measuring 1m3 was packed in a wooden box and sunk into [...]
