Oliver Laric: 2 recent works

Lecture14 October 2015, 19:00Aula, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Oliver Laric’s work deals with Age regression, age progression, TF and Kisekae. It seeks to parse the productive potential of the copy, the bootleg, and the remix, and examine their role in the formation of both historic and contemporary image cultures. This process is intimately tied to his intuitive, idiosyncratic brand of scholarship, which he presents through an ongoing series of fugue-like expository videos (Versions, 2009—present), and further elaborates through his appropriated object works, videos, and sculptures, all of which are densely conceptually layered and often make use of recondite, technologically sophisticated methods of fabrication. Straddling the liminal spaces between the past and the present, the authentic and the inauthentic, the original and its subsequent reflections and reconfigurations, Laric’s work collapses categories and blurs boundaries in a manner that calls into question their very existence.

Laric (born 1981 in Innsbruck, Austria) lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien and is a co-founder of the VVORK platform (www.vvork.com). In his talk at Städelschule he will present two recent works.
