Nika Radic is an artist and works in different media. Her main topic is the limits of possible communication: what is it that we can really understand in everyday communication but also in art. She has done several works that used facades and walls in public space that opened the wall into an imaginary space beyond.
This allowed the viewers to 'peep' into the building and see something that is going on inside… even if it was only an illusion.

Office Cleaning - a view of the other side

Analogous to baroque trompe-l’oeil murals, the projection allows us to look into an illusory room behind the outer facade: a fictional window that draws the attention to hidden, but essential, activities that mostly occur out of public perception. A peephole is opening in the city night.

Clemens Wilhelm
Artist: 

Clemens Wilhelm is a multi media artist. He combines photography, video and performance in his projects, which are often collaborations with audiences. Public space is his hunting ground - on the street, in the gallery or in the net. His work revolves around concepts of individuality and the individual’s interactions with society: the development, representation and expression of the self. Another focus is the creation of meaning through language.

He studied Fine Arts, Philosophy and English and was awarded 'Meisterschüler of Prof. Candice Breitz' at HBK Braunschweig in 2009. This was followed by a one-year-residency grant by KSN Northeim, Niedersachsen.

Macht Nichts

The two simple German syllables 'MACHT NICHTS' appear on the screen. When reading them closely, an ambiguity of meaning shines through. A stunning German wordplay unfolds, a double meaning, which is staggering but hard to translate: on the one hand 'MACHT NICHTS' could mean 'it does not matter, it’s not so bad', on the other hand it could be the imperative 'don’t do anything' or 'do nothing'. However, these words could also just be the nouns 'power' (Macht) and 'nothing' (Nichts).

Colour Occurrence

Colour Occurrence is a text work, linking colour as interpreted in spoken language with Twitter. The project randomly selects a colour from our database, that’s constructed out of colours named by our online contributors worldwide. They associate a word or phrase with a colour of their choice. The database becomes a personal, current and multilingual “spoken language” colour library. When a colour is selected, a Twitter search is performed for tweets containing this colour’s name and live tweets are displayed, generating a cross among international cyber communities.

The Park

The Park is a video panorama depicting space between the domesticated and the wild, a transmission stage between urban and natural environment. The sports park is an autonomous zone with its own rules: in parks, things beyond the daily habits can be done.
The piece is realised through intricate video techniques combining concrete places and characters in our daily life experience: architecture, people and symbols from a globalised world, Helsinki and Berlin. It plays with the themes of urbanity / periphery, rationality/ irrationality, tourism, sports and ecstasy.

Paradise Panorama

Landscape can be abstractly described as the intertwinig of both spatial and physical expansion, made visible by a piece of nature“ (Werner Hofmann on Caspar David Friedrich and Art at the beginning of the 19th century) – Using the Romantic Movement as her inspiration, artist and designer Katrin Schoof investigates landscape as a “space of desires“. Through opulent images of both real and virtual landscapes, a contemplative journey into something like paradise unfolds.
