"Apnea" is completed

My latest film project finally came to an end with the national premier at a cinema in Vienna. "Apnea" was three years in the making. It is the last part of Hund & Horn's "Living Space Series" which shows human life under awkward conditions.

"Strange World" in Budapest

I am invited to make a solo show at the Austrian Cultural Forum Budapest. Last year I had a residency in Pécs, European Capital of Culture 2010 (one of three, that is). During my stay in Hungary I travelled through the country, photographing deserted factories and other buildings.
There is an infamous high-rise in Pécs which stands as a monument of failure. Apparently, tenants moved in at first, but due to static problems they had to abandon the building, leaving it empty for decades now.
Science Fiction vs. Reality...

More pics from the exhibition

Besides photographs and a film, I show architecture models and replicas of high-rises.


Strange workings in Budapest

London, March 2011

At the beginning of March Hund & Horn are invited to participate in an exhibition in London. The show which is curated by artist and free curator Richard Ducker is called "Smoke on the water". It features our films "Tomatoheads" and "Dropping Furniture".

I take up the opportunity and visit London. The weather in early March is rather cold but it also sunny. I stroll around town and photograph buildings which catch my attention, as for example the Barbican:

Close to Tate Modern and next to a Brutalist hospital tower a skyscraper is going up...

while in the vicinity of Elephant & Castle a few inhabitants of the Heygate Estate defy eviction...

The Heygate, a social housing complex built in the early 70ies, consists of six huge blocks. At the time of writing it is being demolished. Remnants of the TV-era still remain on the facade...
