MATRIX
Of mother, womb, array, environment in which more specialised structures can grow.

Theater Münster
Neubrückenstraße 63
10 Jun - 1 Oct, 2017
Site-specific installation with Electric cable, switches, speakers, monitors, custom electronics.

When Neubrückenstrasse was being rebuilt after the war, its buildings and three churches surrounding the site of the theatre were being built “historically”. A financial delay stalled the rebuilding of the theater in similar neo-classical style, and a protest by architects and planners led to a counter-proposal. Within six short weeks, the protestors collective of Deilmann, Rave, VonHausen and Ruhnau had entered and won the competition. The result was "epochal; a thunderclap of bewildering pink and blue mosaic tiles and glass, wrapped around a fragment of ruin". In other words, it was such a special event in the city that it seemed unlikely to take place again.

The question is, how does modernism survive the continued assault of its own inventions? What is its plan for changing with time, or its continuity? Does it still want to grow to cover the entire Earth, or is that universality now abandoned? What is its sense of space or its limits, as it overlapped with the network era?

To test these questions, the artists CAMP have made a historical-materialist proposal for this location. At the core of Matrix is a "black sky" of wire, a speculative sculpture set in a continuous past, a dark sister of the "sky of lamps" inside the theater, and whose function is open-ended.

To See is To Change

with Bombay Tilts Down (2022) and A Photogenic Line, (2019) as part of Photo 24, Melbourne.
In this pair of large-scale works, CAMP explore two sides of their practice; one that produces experimental film and video, often with unusual equipment and angles of participation, and another that creates and animates archives of moving images, documents and photography.
