A cooperation of Michikazu Matsune & Maxim Ilyukhin and brut Wien. With generous support from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Vienna.
“OBJECTIVE POINT OF VIEW” combines performance and exhibition with a humorous and ironic focus on the bigger questions of art reception: How does meaning and imagination develop? How do contexts become visible? And how do we as human beings relate to objects? In other words: what are we actually doing when we reverently stand in front of an art object that has our head spinning?
An installation of paintings, objects and ordinary things becomes the scene of an encounter between performance and visual art. Choreographer-artists Michikazu Matsune and Maxim Ilyukhin take art objects from their pedestals in the truest sense of the word. They interact with them in an absurdly comical way and play at the intersection between poetic nonsense and ever-changing constructions of meaning. An exhibition in the brut foyer shows topic-related photographs of various everyday objects.
