Anja Kirschner: UNICA
27. April – 16. Juli 2022
Teil der Ausstellung In Medias Res: Media, (Still) Moving
With UNICA, Fluentum presents a new video commission by artist and filmmaker Anja Kirschner. Expanding across the entire exhibition space, the two-channel work uncovers traces of catastrophe in historical, simulated, and inner worlds.
Based on Kirschner’s extensive research into the technological and aesthetic potentials of immersive media, UNICA deals with the motif of catastrophic destruction in post-apocalyptic computer game worlds. By merging current post-cinematic forms of production such as motion capture with drawing and quasi-archaeological procedures, the artist condenses UNICA into a complex and poetic exploration of new technologies and the experiential worlds that emerge from them.
