press release by Sylvia Kouvalis (Rodeo Gallery)
This exhibition has been worked out in a structured manner. Michalis Pichler and Eva Weinmayr were invited to invite two artists that work on the same line with them.
FAX invites a multigenerational group of artists, as well as architects, designers, scientists and filmmakers, to conceive of the fax machine as a tool for thinking and drawing. Although the technology for transmitting printed images and texts over distance dates from the nineteenth century—a machine by Scottish mechanic Alexander Bain patented in 1843—it was the introduction of the modern fax through commercially available machines in the 1970s that turned facsimiles into a ubiquitous communications medium for international business.
Sometimes thou seem’st not as thyself alone,
But as the meaning of all things that are;
A breathless wonder, shadowing forth afar
Some heavenly solstice hushed and halcyon;
Whose unstirred lips are musics visible tone;
Whose eyes the sun-gate of the soul unbar,
Being of its furthest fires oracular;-
The evident heart of all life sown and mown.
Even such Love is; and is not thy name Love?
Yea, by thy hand the Love-god rends apart
All gathering clouds of Night’s ambiguous art;
Flings them far down, and sets thine eyes above;
from november 22 2008 until january 8 2009

(from the french Press release, text: Amelie Fauvet)
It appears to me, that the signature of the author, be it an artist, cineast or poet, is the beginning of the system of lies, that all artists try to establish to defend themselves, I do not know exactly against what.
Es kommt mir so vor, dass die Signatur des Autors, sei er nun Kuenstler, Cineast oder Dichter, der Anfang des Systems von Luegen zu sein scheint, das alle Dichter, alle Kuenstler einzurichten versuchen, um sich zu verteidigen, ich weiss nicht genau gegen was. M.B.
