The works shown at Rostrum are dealing with the grammar of objects and images in relation to a particular place: Malmö. The images are originating from Michael Wegerer’s virtual travels on the Internet, as well as from his stay in Sweden in June 2014. He transmits elements and fragments of reality by one or more process steps and translates it to a new and subjective context. Sticky-foil, screen prints, objects and the medium of video are reciprocally brought into dialogue. In this process of exchanging and the multimedia approach, the environment of the exhibition space, on which the artist continually directly refers to, is playing an important role for the reading of the work. Hence the exhibition can be conceived as a spatial installation, that reflects the mutual exchange between objects and graphics, as well as vision and reality.
Michael Wegerer is hosted during the opening by Rostrum Gallery and would like to acknowledge the gallery staff and Magdolna Szabo for their generosity, warmth and support.
