Till Langschied - Palm Reading of Tumaroh (2019)

 

Performance

Performance: Mittwoch, 12 Juni 2019, 18 – 20 Uhr

Für die neue Ausgabe des Katalogs der unabhängigen Basler Projekträume haben sich deuxpiece und A Roland for an Oliver erneut zusammengetan und Künstler Till Langschied eingeladen, eine Performance für den Book Launch der Ausgabe des ARFAO an der I Never Read, Art Book Fair zu entwickeln.

This is the Future and you are the interface. You are one with technology. As a servant of neural networks you are one and many simultaneously – with the whole universe resting in your palm. 
What can your palm tell you about who you need to be in the time of body-server-interconnectivity? Let Till Tumaroh read your bodily interface as a gateway from your former analogue self to the networks that now truly

define who you are.

Till Langschied (DE, lebt und arbeitet in Basel) konzentriert sich in seiner künstlerischen Praxis auf das Gebiet menschlicher Hoffnungen und Träume und untersucht, wie sich jene in Form von Maschinen und Technologien manifestieren. Seine Arbeit thematisiert die sich stetig weiterentwickelnden Beziehungen zwischen virtuellen und analogen Räumen, wobei er an den Grenzen dieser Bereiche agiert. Viele seiner Werke entwickelt er zunächst in digitalen Formaten und transformiert sie dann in physische Objekte und Installationen, um die Wirkungsweise des Virtuellen zu befragen. Basierend auf seiner praxisorientierten Forschung entwickelte er den Slogan "The Future Is Boring" und im gleichen Zuge den Performance-Charakter Till Tumaroh, den er als Avatar auf verschiedenen Ebenen in seiner Arbeit

visuell und performativ einsetzt.

Das schriftliche Manifest von Till Tumaroh wurde bei Éditions Extensibles, Paris, veröffentlicht und als Lecture Performance in der Librairie du Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2019) und der Dampfzentrale in Bern (2018) aufgeführt. 

Vor dem Studium am Institut Kunst HGK FHNW studierte Langschied Designmanagement an der AMD Düsseldorf, wo er postmoderne Designstrategien untersuchte. Zu den jüngsten Ausstellungen gehören die Einzelausstellung "Not All Art with Cubes is Cubism" mit Gerome Johannes Gadient in der TANK in Basel (2019) und

die Gruppenausstellungen "Worlds of Wanderers" in der Binz 39 in Zürich (2019), "Walking Through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black" im Kunstverein Freiburg (2018), "New Deals" im Kunstraum Riehen (2018) und "The Garden of Dystopian Pleasures" in der Old Library of ASFA in Athens (2018).

Performance: Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 6 – 8 pm

For the new edition of the catalogue of Basel’s independent project spaces, deuxpiece and A Roland for an Oliver once again teamed up and invited artist Till Langschied to develop a performance project on the occasion of the book launch at the I Never Read, Art Book Fair.

This is the Future and you are the interface. You are one with technology. As a servant of neural networks you are one and many simultaneously – with the whole universe resting in your palm. 
What can your palm tell you about who you need to be in the time of body-server-interconnectivity? Let Till Tumaroh read your bodily interface as a gateway from your former analogue self to the networks that now truly

define who you are.

Till Langschied (DE, lives and works in Basel) concentrates his artistic practice on the field of human hopes and dreams and investigates how they manifest themselves in the form of machines and technologies. His work explores the constantly evolving relationships between virtual and analog spaces, operating at the boundaries of these realms. He first develops many of his works in digital formats and then transforms them into physical objects and installations in order to question the agency of the virtual. Based on his practice-oriented research, he developed the slogan "The Future Is Boring" and, at the same time, the performance character Till Tumaroh, which he uses visually and performatively as an avatar on various levels within his work.

 

Till Tumaroh's written manifesto was published by Éditions Extensibles, Paris, and performed as a lecture performance at the Librairie du Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2019) and the Dampfzentrale in Bern (2018).

 

Before studying at the Art Institute HGK FHNW in Basel, Langschied studied design management at AMD Düsseldorf, where he researched postmodern design strategies. Recent exhibitions include the solo exhibition "Not All Art with Cubes is Cubism" with Gerome Johannes Gadient at der TANK in Basel (2019) and the group exhibitions "Worlds of Wanderers" at Binz 39 in Zurich (2019), "Walking Through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black" at Kunstverein Freiburg (2018), "New Deals" at Kunstraum Riehen (2018) and "The Garden of Dystopian Pleasures" at Old Library of ASFA in Athens (2018).
