Spectra is a long term project by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms | TILT. It engages with the space it appears in as an organism and part of the artwork. It is a space of a particular attention. The Vienna appearance is one of its first manifestations in a series. For the occasion, we make the space of the Kunstraum am Schauplatz into Spectra: a space where we do not know yet where we are. The Vienna appearance is a collaboration with the location, the nature and the night sky based on the principle of migration. Spectra is an exercise in attention: a trajectory of spaces where the inside is outside is inside. Light Like a Bird, Not Like a Feather.
Especially for the occasion, Andrea made a new performance in collaboration with the night sky: Fireworks
Spectra: Light Like a Bird, Not Like a Feather consists of the constellation of works that are both individual works and create a greater whole together:
The Cube (audio-visual installation, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms, 2015)
Through the Looking Glasses (audio-visual installation, Andrea Božić, Julia Willms, Robert Pravda, 2010)
I Am No Thing (mirror installation, Julia Willms, 2015)
The Passanger (Construction for a passageway, audio-walk, Andrea Božić, 2015)
Fireworks (performance in collaboration with the night sky, Andrea Božić, 2015)
Undoing What We Know (live performance, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms, 2015) performed at the opening
Spectra is a continuation of Willms and Božić’s ongoing research into the effects of attention and imagination, perception of presence, the politics of viewing, presentation of reality and distribution of authorship. The work reorganizes perception combining conceptual with sensorial and physical in paradoxical relations. All works are parts of larger constellations and are a cosmology in the making.
