‚Mobiles Künstler Atelier | SPAREN’

‚Mobiles Künstler Atelier | SPAREN’
Multimedia-Installation
© Susanne Kienbaum 2011

Dimensions: overall dimensions variable according to respective scaffold; in this case: 238x200x150
Materials: scaffold; 260 wooden boxes from the nearby market place, wooden box with light source blinking in two colours 60x20x20

The scaffold was used for constructing a mobile studio build by wooden  boxes from the nearby market where formerly Rucola had been sold. The light source was found in the cellar of the house and was modified: the original word ‘SPIELWAREN’ was modified into ‘SPAREN’ by darkening the letters ‘IELW’.

Every day the ‘Mobiles Künstler Atelier’ was constructed and deconstructed – according to the purpose: the project is my personal suggestion concerning the increasing lack of studio spaces for artists: the ‘Mobiles Künstler Atelier’ is supposed to move together with the scaffold to the next construction site – a suggestion naming the link between artists and gentrification processes in metropoles – recently also in Berlin.

‚Transient Survival Spaces N°1 & 2’

‚Transient Survival Spaces N°1 & 2’
Multimedia-In-Situ Installation
© Susanne Kienbaum 2009

Dimensions: 200x 180x 110 each
Materials: wire, paper shredder, moss shredder, tiles and hand-writing

Concept | Realization: ©Susanne Kienbaum
Concent Art, Kreuzbergstrasse 28, D-10965 Berlin

In order to illustrate the gap between high investments and low outcome of multimedia art installations the work tried to illustrate this issue by achieving the maximum size of an artwork for a minimum of investments: paper shredder and moss were recycled from personal waste for the exhibition, the wire was bought at a huge retail chain and brought back after the exhibition. Thus, overall expenses for this artwork were ony € 48,00. The work was accompanied by a cynical text written on the tiled walls: naming the artist’s production process including budgeting, overall art marketing and business, illustrated by a photo of Carl Spitzweg ‘the poor poet’.

‚Oleanderüberwachungsanlage’

‚Oleanderüberwachungsanlage’
Light Installation including observation camera
© Susanne Kienbaum 2010

Material: messing plate, acryl, polypropylene, observation camera
Dimensions: 45x25x12

In one night of summer 2009 the two oleanders who are part of the entrance of K: S-p-a-c-e  were destroyed by young people overnight. I decided to build the Oleanderüberwachungsanlage by integrating an observation camera into the shining letter over the entrance….

‚K-Space-Release-Book’
Interactive Artist Book
© Susanne Kienbaum 2010

Material: messing plate, paper, Farrow & Balls colour sample cards
Dimensions: 60x40x10

After having renovated K: S-p-a-c-e for three years it was inaugurated on July 2nd , 2010. No art works were shown except the space itself.

All guests of the inauguration party were invited to write down their projections / ideas / suggestions for the K: S-p-a-c-e in the K-Space-Release Book. Therefore they could choose three colours from the Farrow & Balls colour sample cards (including the respective poetic names) and write something down into the book.. Best ideas will be executed in the future…

‚Cocoon | Green Portable Spaces‘

‚Cocoon | Green Portable Spaces’

Installation | Performance

© Susanne Kienbaum 2008-09

Dimensions: 180 x 50 x 50 each
Material: polypropylen, latex garden wire, green suitcase
Performance together with Evelyn Müursepp

Mediascape 2008 and 2009: International Media Artists Meeting, Museum Lapidarium, Novigrad, Croatia

In order to explore the minimum of space adaptable to a human size which still can easily be transported by hand luggage the two portable spaces were in an on-going performance sewed by hand during two summers sitting on the brim of a well in Novigrad. Having finished the two Portable Spaces they were stabilized by inserting meters and were exposed during the exposition Mediascape 2008 and 2009.

In 2009 a performance was performed together with Evelyn Müursepp: the two spaces were carried around the city and their suitability for interaction and giving sufficient shelter was explored.

‚Pont Bleu – Pause Bleue‘

‚Pont Bleu – Pause Bleue’
Site-specific Light-Object-Installation
© Susanne Kienbaum 2006

Dimensions: Illumination of the Thielen Brücke in Berlin-Kreuzberg in the framework of ’48-Stunden-Neukölln’
Materials: 1600 blue water bottles, 1600 LED light sources, bottle boxes, pillows made from grass tissue, two boats with blue light sources floating in the water

On invitation the Thielen-Brücke was illuminated by 1.600 blue water bottles, to each bottle an LED was connected, 8 bottles filled one bridge segment.

The realization of this installation was inspired by the fact that in this area of Berlin the alcohol problem is evident in public life – interpretation of 1.600 illuminated water bottles could be purely esthetic but an alternative interpretation is the subtle invitation to slow down alcohol consumption in favour of pure, blue water…

During the 48 hours this installation was running it was functioning as a social gathering point  – a lot of pedestrians came and sat down on the bottles boxes, to have a pause, to chat a bit, to drink a bottle of water…

‚Weicher Raum No 1‘

‚Weicher Raum No 1’
Installation | Object | Artist Book
© Susanne Kienbaum 2002

Dimensions: 200 x 400 x 400
Materials: gaze, PVC, feathers, wood, copper, light, water

This 2-m-high object which can be entered with naked feet is referring to the discussion of PID (pre-implantation diagnostics) and is inspired by a couple of newspaper articles referring to frozen embryos and associated law quarrels throughout the world. Once inside the object which is in fact resembling an uterus the spectator can read the writing on the bottom of the water basin: ‘where does art stop and where does life start?’ which is a quotation of Christian Boltanski.  In the artist book which is part of the installation (not shown in the foto documentation) the respective newspaper articles as well as scientific and philosophical input can be found and read according to personal taste.

The installation is together with ‘Rubikon, Rot, Rot’ (->) part of a double installation under the overall title ‘Rot, Rot’.
