[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Alexander Glandien – ZONE

Artist Statement

The installation „ZONE“ focuses on the process of demarcation, on the definition of ban zones and on the exclusion linked with it. Starting point of this kinetic installation is an ordinary, adaptable street-barrier. This barrier was modificated and automated, so that it can constantly change expansion, position and the required space. The installation cuts and crosses the exhibition space at the same time. This installation creates some kind of prohibited area by their movement and thereby it makes strategies and forms of exclusion visible.
