Consisting of video projections, light, sound and sculptural instruments programmed and automated to create a fictitious post-human place of worship, Lauschmann speculates and reflects on his world's absence of toil, suffering and pain.
Torsten Lauschmann's art is notable for its innovative and idiosyncratic approach across a range of formats including video, photography, sound, online projects, performance and installation. He is interested in the earliest forms of magical and cinematic entertainment, as well as the latest technological advances. He tweaks the mechanics of both digital and analogue technologies, producing works that explore our relationship with machines, as well as our understanding of the moving image and illusion. Made using a range of materials, found objects and technological processes, his works defy categorisation and deliberately avoid the notion of a signature style or appearance. Instead, Lauschmann is interested in delving into the fundamentals of life and human nature -- resulting in artworks that range from the melancholic, poetic and romantic, to the theoretical and the absurd.
This exhibition presents a new and extended composition of audio-visual and sculptural works first shown at Glasgow School of Art during Glasgow International 2018.
