  • 18 May 2012 — 19 May 2012

Featuring Oliver Hölzl, Linda Krefft and Nicole Prutsch


As a philosophical interpretation of the Trompe-l'oeil, the "interpassive Praxis" (Robert Pfaller) describes the practice of delegating feelings and behaviours on to external objects, persons or things. 

This represents a subtle form of escapism from anxiety raised by the confrontation with one’s own pleasure. 

Artists from London, Hamburg and Vienna come together to explore the interplay between reality and deception, through an exhibition that processes contemporary perceptions of pleasurable sensation.

In 'Bananas and Cream' Olivier Hölzl reproduces explicit images that are transferred on to wallpapers. The work deals with issues of ‘home’ in relation to more covert internet pursuits.

'Fan', an installation by Linda Krefft, creates a playful interaction between the real object and the virtual image, questioning the viewer's perceptions of reality and illusion through movement in linear time.

'Self Portraits', a video installation by Nicole Prutsch is conceived out of sequences recorded by the integrated camera in webbrowsing devices, whilst experiencing a range of stimuli.
