Wed 19.04 - 19:00 // CONCERT, BOOK LAUNCH // ACUD STUDIO
STATES AND CONDITIONS LIVE: EISKLARES ECHO (MIA VON MATT / RETO PULFER)

A multi-disciplinary evening takes place at Acud Studio to inaugurate Reto Pulfer’s monograph Zustandskatalog: Catalog of States and Conditions.
 
Eisklares Echo is the collaboration of Mia von Matt and Reto Pulfer. The music performances by EE are attempts in transformation and rely on the intimacy of improvised timing. With synthesizer, electric guitar, kalimba, electronics, words and effects the duo creates extended, powerful soundscapes embedded in minimal visual magic.
 
The evening takes place inside an immersive installation made from fabrics and pillows that is characteristic for Reto Pulfer’s working practice. The monograph gives a substantial overview of his work and is prepared in collaboration with five institutions where recently solo exhibitions took place. The 280 pages are designed by HIT and conceived with the artist, it is published by Sternberg Press.

“The monograph is inspired by the style of a catalogue raisonné where each works is presented with an accompanying text. The 475 color photographs of documentation are juxtaposed to excerpts from my novels. There are technical drawings, projects done for one-evening shows, next to room-filling installations made after months of preparation. When, in the installations, borderlines between works were not sharp, in the book we decided to methodologically create a typology of my works from about the last fifteen years. The book features obvious categories such as Living Ceramics, Food Advice, Ghostology and more intuitive ones like Synesthesia and Transformation.” (Reto Pulfer)
