Home > Winners > #45344


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sustainable Identities

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Site specific space installation

INSPIRATION:
With his selection of the theme All the World’s Futures, Okwui Enwezor, head curator of the 56th Venice Biennale, invited tha artist to examine the possible ‘futures of the world’. In this context, artist Szilárd Cseke considered the foundational concept. The curatorial concept therefore envisioned an associative, a cognitive space in the Hungarian pavilion in which interpretation was realized on a personal, communal and global level.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Szilárd Cseke’s installation entitled Sustainable Identities represented Hungary between 9 May and 22 November 2015 at the Biennale di Venezia. The installation investigated global issues. Questions of identity were brought into collision with themes of migration and personal decision-making, thus alluding to sustainability with the combination of found and recycled objects. White balls continuously moving back and forth inside the seven translucent tubes called attention to collective and individual identity formations.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The interactive elements of the inner courtyard called on the visitors to write, draw and move. To create new messages related to identity formations and sustainability.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
9 MAy-24 November 2015. La Biennale di Venezia, Hungarian Pavilion, Giardini Venice.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Installation/Art works: electric fans, foil, plexi glass, LED tubes. Elements of the inner courtyard: Blackboards, white chalk balls and seven black circles with terms.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
various dimensions, 27 m-4 m.

TAGS:
sustainability, identities, interaction, participation

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The realisation of the project started in January 2015 at the MOME-Budapest and the site specific installation was exhibited every seven months in Vencie. The curator and the artist were working closely with design students, university lecturers and the sound artist Ábris Gryllus. The whole preparing process includes real participation. When we were working on the exhibition catalogue, an unrealised plan of Walter Benjamin was at the back of our minds. We realised a bookobject in which invited experts have contributed texts on the subject stemming from their diverse scientific backgrounds. Visitors were very satisfied to have a particiapatory place (inner courtyard), chalk-balls to write and draw and an application which has made abstract 3D voice-objects.

CHALLENGE:
The time for the preparation of the exhibiton catalogue and the exhibition was very short.
