de-composition - Installation

Music typewriter; 2017  Temporäre Eisarbeit: Abguss aus Tinteneis, 50 x 35 x 20 cm @claudia märzendorfer

Many of Austrian artist Claudia Märzendorfer’s pieces transfer the ephemeral and fleeting nature of sound to the visual realm. In Märzendorfer’s work, objects are often merely temporary and processual: wall drawings vanish, records made of ice melt as they play. This approach results in the creation of poetic images and plastics whose dissolution begins to set in with their presentation. The exhibition De-Composition at Meinblau Projektraum combines a new version of Märzendorfer’s ice sculpture »Music Typewriter« with the new work »smashed to pieces« — a cinematic sound recording of the destruction of a grand piano. The result is a concentrated action, a live act, in which both the form and sound of the instrument undergo a gradual transformation — from a compact functioning structure to an assemblage of various forms.
