TERESA COS - THE MEASURE OF DISORDER

EXHIBITION

Opening Saturday 22.09.2018 – 18:00 – 21:00

For her new two-channel video- and sound installation, Teresa Cos (b. 1982, Italy, lives and works in Brussels and London) follows the trail of the Austrian scientist Ludwig Boltzmann (1844 - 1906), who is know for his ground-breaking findings about the phenomenon of entropy, but also for his tragic suicide in the village of Duino, not far from the Adriatic town of Trieste (the region where also Cos grew up).

At the exhibition, the artist makes a non-linear reconstruction of Boltzmann’s last journey from Vienna to the “Austrian Riviera”, crossing the Alps and the territories of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the turn of the twentieth century. The images are presented to the tune of an evocative soundtrack, which includes digitally distorted voices.

Playing with the conventions of cinema, Cos mixes personal anecdotes with ‘grand’ socio-political movements. Thus The Measure of Disorder offers a reflection on the human perception of the concept of time, memory and on the (ir)reversibility of things happening.

Teresa Cos’s work comprises still and moving images, sound and music, and explores the human condition as never-ending negotiating between individual subjectivities and global societies.
