The Garden Of Error And Decay

Art Center Nabi, Seoul

The artist duo Michael Bielicky and Kamila B. Richter interact with the architectural features in the atrium and on the fa├žade of the "Art Center Nabi" in Seoul which are interspersed with meter-long LCD screens. Although her narrative software generates circular, chaotic and infinitely continuing image-text worlds, it always develops from left to right or from bottom to top. Thus, the LCD bands constitute an exciting medium for a narrative of catastrophic consumption stemming from the irony of an information consumption culture which is generated, influenced and moved without moving anything in the real wolrd, a consumption culture that is prone to error and counteracts its own decay - a narrative of the infinite streams of the cooperative-communicative internet.
