Description

Im Rahmen der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Marcel Zaes und ox&öl sind bei einer Konzertreise in die USA eine Reihe von "Setting"-Videos entstanden, die das Kukuruz Quartett als Teil einer "living installation" zeigt, unter anderem auf der Halbinsel Coney Island (englisch für "Kanincheninsel"), die südlichste Spitze von Brooklyn, die direkt an der Atlantikküste liegt und vor allem durch ihre paradigmatischen Vergnügungsparks und die angrenzende triste Hochhaussiedlung russischer Einwanderer bekannt ist.
Das Kukuruz Quartett spielt auf vier Smartphones mit Oszillatoren-Apps Musik von Marcel Zaes.

With the term «living installations», Marcel Zaes aims to conceptualize a novel form of artistic practice within the visual arts which transgresses the boundaries of sound art, classical composition, performance and installation art. Zaes uses the concept to describe those of his works that blend the ephemeral character of sound art with the three-dimensionality and site-specificity of installation art. The resulting oscillation between the performative, as embodied by the performers employed, and between the installative, represented by the various objects placed in the scene, is what constitutes the «living» and the «installation» elements of this new genre. In merging objects and human performers into plain sound-producing elements, both components are transformed into living sculptures; hierarchically equivalent constituents of a single, living space.
