  [ON TUNNELS AND CORRIDORS. Texture of Imagination]

SHOW
Kunstverein Medienturm
Josefigasse 1, 8020 Graz
15.07-02.09.2006

A mazy corridor winds across the spaces of Kunstverein Medienturm, triggering a claustrophobia-like state, activated by nervously flickering neon light. Gerold Tagwerker suggests an escape route through a tunnel-like corridor, referring to corridor scenes of cinematic catastrophe scenarios. On the outside of this accessible sculpture, several video works by Siegrun Appelt are presented, featuring well-known tunnel situations and abstract bottlenecks, but also mysterious and frightening light situations in dark and dimly lit night-time parkways. The interwoven, illusionist space structure opens up an imaginary cinematographic set-up.
