Events 2008


Markus Scherer

Opening: 23 April 2008, 7 p.m.

Markus Scherer’s WELTCUPARENA (World Cup Arena) explored space in a particular way. In a two-channel projection a performer
(Norbert Fasching) strode through the underground ski area in Zauchensee with a video camera, while the area became a “stage ” for the utensils that were brought along. The maze of gastro-entertainment and simulated village idyll revealed itself more and more through the factor of a subjective presence. At the same time, elements from the film were integrated in the real exhibition room, which exposed the illusionary character of the presented tourism scenery and disarranged it further.

Markus Scherer was born in 1963 in Schwarzach/St.Veit, he lives and works in Vienna. He works in media room installation, film and video and is also a curator.
