Lisa Horvath @La Strada Graz

01 aug. > 03 aug.

Graz, Austria

with '5.97 x 10 to the power of 24 kilograms' in collaboration with Kristin Gerwien and Ninja Guru Studio

Seven small digits that literally form the basis for all known life: "5.97 x 10 to the power of 24 kilograms" indicates the mass of the earth, which is represented by a playful hemisphere in Lisa Horvath's installation. 


This breathes artificially, changes its appearance and comes with a composition of words, images and sounds. "5.97 x 10 to the power of 24 kg or the mass of the world - a series of nested nightmares" is the Styrian artist's attempt to embrace the world in all its complexity. At certain evening hours, the interactive installation becomes the scene and instrument of a concert performance by three insect-like creatures and a newborn android - and deals with the desire and failure to locate oneself as an individual within the complex relationships and dimensions of our world.
