ISCP Alum Birthe Blauth showing at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel in New York

Birthe Blauth, The Gift, 2011, Interactive 1-channel videoinstallation

ISCP alum Birthe Blauth is currently showing at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel in New York. The gallery will present four new works by Blauth in her first solo show in the US. Blauth's conceptual video works and installations explore the conflict betwen the individual stands and his limitations. Her interest is divided equally between two areas. On the one hand, she focuses on subjective perception. On the other hand, she explores the subjective thinking and effort individuals undertake to relate themselves to their surroundings. Her precise, pared-down works appear simple at first. But as soon as the observer takes the time to open up to them, their complexity and effectiveness unfold. Her works are meditative and "unhurried". Her approach to time or more at home in the cultures of the Far East. Often, the boundaries between fiction and reality, between art and the observer, between art and non-art become dissolved.

The exhibition is currently running and will close on January 21, 2012 at 532 West 25th Street, New York, NY 10001. More information here.

Additionally, Blauth was invited by the German consulate to the United States to participate in an evening "The Red Orchestra and the Art of Resistance" on January 12, 2012. Blauth's audio art installation work, Et si omnes ego non (Even if all others…I will not) complemented the lecture. With the Latin phrase  for its title, the work features the sentence repeated over and over by different voices- disordered at first, then slowly uniting into one rhythm. The process is at the same time visually portrayed through a frequency diagram.

Et si omnes ego non is on display at the German House through January 24. More information here.
