*IMHO*
with
CHRISTOPH DRAEGER

Wednesday 14 March 2007
7 pm

Location One's Heather Wagner in conversation with artist Christoph Draeger. They will discuss a new performance/installation piece for the exhibition "Une Question de Génération" at the Musée d'Art Contemporain in Lyon, France. The piece is a re-enactment of rock band The Who's legendary Monterey Pop Festival performance of "My Generation", replete with guitar smashing and stage destruction. Other works by Draeger will be discussed.

Disaster and violence are Draeger's subjects. In the 1990s he visited the sites of plane crashes, explosions and tornados and constructed detailed models of the scenes, which he photographed or painted.

Hiroshima, Lockerbie, the World Trade Center: pictures of these catastrophes have stamped themselves indelibly on our consciousness. We feel we know such disasters intimately, because the media presents them to us in such an extensive and immediate way. Yet CHRISTOPH DRAEGER reveals how contrived our perceptions of an apparently instantaneous and uncontrolled reality are.

LOCATION ONE is a not-for-profit organization devoted to convergence between visual, performing and digital arts in a time of rapidly changing technology  . We invite artists from different disciplines and from different countries to work in our studios. We ask them to experiment with the new technologies of artistic creation, interaction and delivery. We urge them to collaborate in creating new works and give them virtual Internet spaces and physical gallery space to exhibit the results. Our goals are to foster the creation of new work, new forms of expression, and new capabilities in artists, and to advance new awareness in all those we reach.
