ALOIS SPÄTH HUMAN NATURE

The Berlin-based sound and photo artist Alois Späth pres­ents his first solo exhi­bi­tion entit­led HUMAN NATURE in Decem­ber 2019 in the Gal­lery for Con­tem­porary Pho­to­gra­phy.
Using various media for­mats and par­ti­ally fre­ely asso­cia­ting, Späth elu­ci­da­tes the rela­ti­onship of the indi­vi­dual to the natu­ral foun­da­ti­ons of life in the con­text of a pro­gres­sive environ­men­tal destruc­tion cau­sed by man. Like­wise, he nego­tia­tes human inter­ac­tion wit­hin a plu­ra­listic society and pro­jects both the­mes to situa­ti­ons in the con­text of his per­so­nal life, pro­ces­sing his motifs as prints, LED light boxes, several small LED illu­mi­na­ted tiles, video loops with scrol­ling tex­tures as well as sound sur­face com­po­si­ti­ons and instal­la­ti­ons.
The LED light boxes, the illu­mi­na­ted tiles and the pro­jec­ted video loops illu­mi­nate the dar­ke­ned rooms of the gal­lery in deci­dedly cho­sen color spaces. The visi­tor enters the respec­tive play of colors in front of the three picture-sound instal­la­ti­ons, looks at the (LED-lit) pic­tures and can lis­ten through head­pho­nes to the sound of each room-in-room arran­ge­ment.
The exhi­bi­tion will be supp­le­men­ted with a fourth image-sound instal­la­tion in which the LED light­box image “Tree (Sequence)” will be shown – howe­ver, initi­ally “silent”, ie wit­hout sound via head­pho­nes. Very close to this image, an instal­la­tion crea­tes com­plex sen­sory impres­si­ons, in which a cur­tain of thin plas­tic bags is set in motion and sound with gentle wind by a fan.
