*The Last Supper : Above the Skies**
**An audiovisual installation by Alexandra Reill, production:
kanonmedia/Galata Perform*

*****/A Last Supper/** is taken by the visitors of the Performing Days
Istanbul 2007 - a dinner as frugal as feeding as it is with its apple on
the plates of a table with thirteen seats. The looping screening of the
film **/Above the Skies/** **creates a stringent sacral character for
this multicultural dinner where a chair is missing and where the shades
of visitors become part of the scenario.*

Traces of Moorish, Jewish and Catholic culture of the Middle Ages form
the visual framework for a search on the inner essence and character of
human suffering in life, putting the viewer in a trance-like state of
slowed down introspection. Opulent Baroque versus Gothic and Muslim
transparencies. Empty Jewish quarters maintained like museums for
tourists' looks. A Europe place as proof for imperialistic approaches.

What does suffering mean. What does suffering mean in a lifetime. What
is the sense of conflict, the sense of separation. Impressions of life,
always doubled to keep the option to look through things. A journey from
the Earth to the Skies and back, at a table where a chair is missing in
the round.

With remixes of Middle Age chorals out of the times of Alfonso X El
Sabio (1221-1284), Elisabeth the Catholic (1410-1563), the Nasrid
Dynasty (1410-1563) and the Jewish culture.

PROGRAM
---------

*Performance Time 07 **February 26th - March 7th, 2007*

**

*
*

GalataPerform, an interdisciplinary art platform, is organizing a
program of events to study "performance" conceptually and discover
various approaches to it: "Performance Time 07". This program aims to
bring together domestic and foreign artists from a number of
disciplines, such as dance, theatre, music, fine arts ... all of which
can be associated with the art of performance.

Artists such as Komet, Genco Gulan, Mustafa Kaplan, Yes,im Ozsoy Gulan
and students from Bog(azici University and Mimar Sinan University are
among the participants from within Turkey. 5 artists from Spain, 2 from
Serbia, 4 from Austria, Israel, France and Italy will visit our country
and perform their works.

The main objective is to create a fertile ground in Turkey for the art
of performance to flourish, by promoting experimental, creative artistic
expression and providing the audience with the access to performance
projects. The works that blur the lines between different art
disciplines will have the majority.
Through Performance Time 07, each event will be organized by a curator.
So that, every day a different approach to performance will be introduced.

VISUALISTiNNEN
VisualistInnen, auch VJs genannt, erschaffen kollektive Sehgemeinschaften
und verstehen sich im weitesten Sinne als bildende KunstlerInnen, die sich
uber verschiedenste Zugange mit dem Kreieren von visuellen Erlebnissen
mithilfe verschiedenster medialer Technologien beschaftigen. Das Spektrum
reicht dabei von medial basierten Installationen fur Ausstellungen, uber
visuelle Kompositionen, das Gestalten von Raumen durch Projektionen,
Projektionen im offentlichen Raum, bis zu visuellen Live-Performances, bei
denen die Audio- und VideokunstlerInnen, gemeinsam und live ein
akustisches, visuelles und raumliches Erlebnis schaffen.

Visuelle Projektionskunst bildet eine neue Kunstform sowie Profession, die
sich im Kontext der Rave-, Ambient- und Club Kultur der 90er Jahre
entwickelt hat. VisualistInnen (Videojockeys (VJs),
ProjektionskunstlerInnen, Visual Artists) formen als visuelles Aquivalent
zum Diskjockeys (DJs), instantane Bildcollagen in Echtzeit. Zeitgebunden
Unikate entstehen gespeist aus Computeranimation, TV-Samples,
Grossbilddiaprojektionen und analogen Filmformaten. 'Projektionen",
'mediale Buhnenbilder" und 'Visuals" sind aus den verschiedenen kulturellen
Veranstaltungs-Genres heute kaum mehr wegzudenken.

EQUALEYES
mochte KunstlerInnen, die hinter diesen visuellen Ereigniswelten stehen, in
der Offentlichkeit prasenter und "sichtbarer" machen:
Bei der seit Juli 2004 laufenden Veranstaltungsreihe im Museumsquartier
wien steht die Kunst und Kultur von VisualistInnen im Dialog mit Musik und
dem Publikum im Mittelpunkt. Es werden verschiedenste Arbeitsweisen und
Ansatze im Partykontext und einer begleitenden Diskursschiene (Sehschule)
prasentiert.
EQUALEYES ist ein Projekt, das aus der Vernetzung der
VisualistInnen-Initiativen pooool, Eye|Con und visualist/in/daba, sowie
Visuelle Musik (q21) und Cheap Entertainment entstanden ist.

UPDATE
Bei der Ausstellung UPDATE ist das VisualistInnen-Vernetzungs-Projekt ist
EQUALEYES mit mehreren Modulen vertreten.
Kuratiert und koordiniert wurde die EQUALEYES-Prasenz von der
Projektionskunstlerin und EQUALEYES-Mitinitiatorin Julia Zdarsky.
Die Ausstellung ist noch bis 03. April 2005 zu sehen.

UPDATE beobachtet das aktuelle Kunstgeschehen in Wien.
UPDATE bringt Kunst und Szene in Zusammenhang.
UPDATE prasentiert Projekte und zeigt Haltung.
UPDATE fragt nach Uberlebensstrategien, Selbstverstandnis und Techniken
einer kommenden Kunstlergeneration in bestehenden und neuen Markten in Wien.
