GoSee Trip Tip : KARAOKE – Visual Quotes, at Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland

Have you seen these or ones like these before? Countless amenities, information and images make their mark on us: at school or in our careers, in magazines or the internet. They are all influenced by a multiplicity of subliminal codes.

Daily we navigate our way through word and image, some days are more successful than others, we wade between subtle advertising and hard facts, between governmental warnings and private messages.

We give our undivided attention to both more classic forms of media and new media, with its overflowing offers. Through our constant observation we become increasingly affected by a “second”, medial reality, which we no longer experience directly.

The KARAOKE – Visual Quotes exhibition shows works by Becky Beasley (GB), Thomas Galler (CH), Aneta Grzeszykowska (PL), Thomas Julier (CH), Anja Manfredi (A), Ryan McGinley (USA), Taiyo Onorato / Nico Krebs (CH/CH), Clunie Reid (GB) and Oliver Sieber (D). It explores the close proximity of what is actually experienced and what is felt or thought to be experienced. It presents a playful approach to how we all move in parallel worlds.
The young generation of artists on show at Winterthur and here on GoSee, work with hybrid picture series, animation and individual images, between image invention, montage and artistic adaptation. At the same time, they express a strong sense of awareness for ancestry, a critical interest in society and artistic creation.

Their performance, installation and film work covers new ground in contemporary fine art photography.

A catalogue accompanies the exhibition. The show was curated by Thomas Seelig.
