Constanze Ruhm & Christine Lang and First Office
Exhibition, MAK Center, Mackey Garage Top, Los Angeles, USA, until 01 March 2014.
Presented here is the work of former artist-in-residence Constanze Ruhm in collaboration with German filmmaker Christine Lang and Los Angeles architects First Office (Anna Neimark and Andrew Atwood). Ruhm and Lang's experimental film Kalte Probe (Cold Rehearsal) is seen in an installation designed by First Office. It references a number of other films, both by the artist and by directors such as Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni, and Andrei Tarkovsky. The installation, PARANORMAL PANORAMA, expresses a response to a found photograph depicting the home of 19th-century architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, its walls covered in a painted mural of a mountain range.
