Kathrin Ganser and Daniela Zeilinger

"The indeterminate" is a recurring theme and element in the works of Kathrin Ganser and Daniela Zeilinger. The artists' photo-based and photographic works pose questions about perception and making visible. Sources of error in the moments of recording and in the digital files are elementary components in the processual work and the production of images. Because that is also what it is about: what is an image, what is reality. Above all that. What is real? Or also: what can images say about reality?

Their joint exhibition project "Uncertainity" is about the the communication of the commonalities as well as the subtle nuances and differences in the contemplation of the common theme, which is found in the finding of the "indeterminate". The potential arbitrariness of the size of the photographic print thereby becomes a collaborator in eradicating certainties in reception. In Fluxus, in the fluidity of the present, as well as in the sometimes media-aesthetic absurdity, the two artists find a truth of their own that is constantly renegotiated and is open to discussion.

Solo Show with a presentation of the artist's latest works at Elektrohalle Salon.

In Daniela Zeilinger's photographic experiments, a wide variety of light-dependent techniques merge into hybrid constellations that tell of the existence of multiple realities. The image sparks an investigative gaze in terms of indexicality; an attempt to separate the different levels from one another and to trace them back to actualities. But the image does not disintegrate. Instead, it references the numerous agents and ancillary techniques involved in its creation: the artist's body, the display of a laptop, colorful pigments, the staff of the photo studio, and so on. Some of the elements have been translated from positive to negative and vice versa, therefore implementing several contradictory realities that coexist in a singular image space. Their relations generate a choreography of different materialities and temporalities that refer to the individual durations of the various exposure and editing processes. Like the layers of geological formations, from which we can read the age of rocks, the earth, and time itself, we try to look down into the ground of the photographic works and, loosely following Heinz von Foerster, ask ourselves: where is the one reality? Where are the many realities? – Sophie Publig
