V E N U S – a multimedia installation by Hans Diernberger. November 2013, Fuhrwerkswaage Kunstraum Cologne. Presented by KunstSalon Cologne.
Music improvised by: Will Saunders
This exhibition shows the work that I did during my residency at Villa Aurora, Los Angeles in 2012.
The music was improvised by William Saunders. In the show, it was played by a Yamaha disklavier. It started every 14 minutes, leaving a silence period of 7 minutes in the room.
Villa Aurora has been the exile home of german writer Lion Feuchtwanger and his wife, Marta, during and after the second world war. Inspired by her extraordinary way of dressing in floral patterns and her love for the garden, i recreated the former garden with fabrics that she could have worn at the time. Those fabrics became the key transition to my experiences in LA and the amazing people that i have met there.
Starring: Magdalena Della Luna , She La She, Rahab, Nazri Goudeau, Isaac.
This exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue and a limited edition print.
