OVERSEAS ASSIGNMENTS @ GALLERY FREY, VIENNA

The new year starts off with our first solo exhibition in Gallery Frey’s basement in the rough-but-upcoming-neighbourhood between Kaisergruft, Reinthaler and Tirolerhof in Vienna’s 1st district – opening on Tuesday, 11th of January 2011. We simply had no time to think of something new, so we chose to show ARGE's last two projects, ‘Supercargo’ and ‘Gift Economy Worker Kyoto’ which have been merged in the title “Overseas Assignments” (we googled it and found 223.000 results, so it seems to be a terrific title for a show!) And what else to fill up this space? Bernhard Garnicnig wrote a nice text on ‘Supercargo’, read it here. Special thanks to the shipping company NSB Niederelbe Schiffahrtsgesellschaft, who have been very generous with their support throughout the last months. UPDATE: See pictures and credits to "Overseas Assignments" here. The last chance to see the exhibition will be the gallery breakfast / finnissage on Saturday 22nd January from 10-16.

Self Portrait with Doodle

Self Portrait with Doodle

We misused one of the most helpful web applications for producing a classical genre work: a digital selfportrait, representing the facial appearance of Christian Schwab by a grid of questions, slogans, beliefs, facts, wishes and decisions, colliding with each other to form binary truth in green or red. We’ve never ever been so honest, really. See the results here.

KÅT A4 IN GOTHENBURG

We take part in the group exhibition KÅT A4 in Galleri Box, Gothenburg/Sweden, opening this Thursday 23th July. KÅT is the swedish term for horny, and the invited artists were asked to "create a specific artwork that can fit on a standard A4 paper not heavier than 80 grams" - which we did. You can see the contribution here. If you speak swedish, you can check out this review (and tell us what it's about).
