Unskilled Going through a X-Ray. Semiskilled looking brutally honest at yourself and Skilled you have to stand up and say: My name is Ronny Luft and i have not lived up to my potential. My name is Marian Szillo and i am an alcoholic. But development is a voluntary process. Unskilled like a little brake. Semiskilled like a little breakdown. Skilled like a little freedom. Our future at your fin- gertips.
Clovis XV invites Marian Luft and Ronny Szillo, two artists living and working in Leipzig, for an one-month residency at Château Nour. This invitation is primarily born of an encounter and a desire for exchange.They co-direct the artist run space BSMNT, in the Spinnerei, a former textile factory housing most of Leipzig art galleries.The will of resistance in an exclusively market environment, the diversity of their curatorial proposals is in the image of their respective approaches. Handling with decomplexion all the plastic forms, they are part of the borders of a post-digital world and its anticipated reification.
Drawing their shapes from ultra-connected objects, they twist them to sublimate them without sanctification. Everything is then material and pretext to metamorphose in an environment where the interfaces irreparably influential on the human body: natural materials, everyday artifacts, consumer objects recreated or found in proliferating facilities videos on desire optimization and energy behavioral.
It is no longer a matter of simply dematerializing the work but of pointing to a reversal in two times. Moving first the digital to the In Real Life experience and then reversing the operation, we would switch from the apprehensible concept of augmented reality to the more complex notion of virtuality augmented by the real lived.
