Judith Fegerl explores the possibilities of electrical energy as sculptural and imaging material in a techno-poetic way. In “on/” she provokes a reflection on the availability and use of resources in a site-specific, symbiotic setting.
The exhibition has symbiotically merged with and switched on Kunstraum Dornbirn. Electricity flows. For Fegerl’s sculptural works, however, the electricity comes not from the socket as usual but from a solar power plant on the south side of the exhibition space that was specially designed and installed for the exhibition – a reference steeped in history, since the former assembly hall of the Rüsch Works built in 1893 constructed turbines for the first hydroelectric power plants.
