Light and shadow projections, VR performance, interactive video and sound installations at the Kesselhaus Linden boiler house
The Kunstverein Kunsthalle Hannover presents an extensive multimedia project under the title “Replication” at the Kesselhaus Linden. The topic of the project is replication or reproduction, as in a viral processes the ability of a system to make copies of itself. The artists use the replication of digital data or algorithms to build complex structures of generative art.
The exhibition title forms the content-related bracket for all four works shown on each side of the boiler house for three evenings in October. While the artists Marjam Oskoui and Anne Nissen mainly work with rear projections from inside the boiler house through the windows on the east and west sides, the guest team Brück / Krasuk and Harro Schmidt project complex visual worlds from the outside on the north and south sides, accompanied by sounds and soundscapes.
Participating artists Florencia Brück, Javier Krasuk, Anne Nissen, Marjam Oskoui and Harro Schmidt

Visual “impression” by Florencia S. M. Brück
Florencia’s installation consists of the creation of an interactive digital painting that captures light (the visual “impression”) in its changing qualities and the moment beyond the forms that underlie it. Like the work of Impressionists such as Munch, Vincent van Gogh or Monet, Florencia accentuates the effects of the passage of time and the inclusion of movement by the audience as a crucial element of human perception and experience. Participants will be able to alter the painting using any light source.
Florencia is a multidisciplinary artist who works with sculpture, photography, painting, programming languages, sound and video. She is perhaps most widely known for her vibrant pliage sculpted paintings from her 2019 installation during Venice Art Biennale. There are several recurring motifs in her work, from transforming plains to the matrix of time that underlines all universes. Her enduring fascination with death, time and parallel universes led to her installation NDA(Near Death Experience) where a visual algorithm splits the human shape into two spectrums to conceive her own NDA by drowning experience when she was only 5 years old. The installation is captivating – the recognizable figure becomes transformed in a timeless spiritual moment. Yet another way her recurring exploration of the articulate plains and the natural system of webs is her “Tension and Interlude” folding and unfolding canvas artworks.
