This summer, The Salzburger Kunstverein presents three exhibitions and an outdoor cinema programme, Sunset Kino.

(1) Main gallery

Geoffrey Farmer & Gareth Moore: A Dark Switch Yawning, Neptune Skeletons Thronging, Black Bucket Prolonging, World Turtle Longing, Sink Plug Wronging
July 28–October 1
Opening: Friday, July 28, 8pm

Artists Geoffrey Farmer and Gareth Moore have paired up to develop a collaborative, site-specific installation for the Salzburger Kunstverein. Farmer, who represents Canada at the Venice Biennale this year, and Moore, who is Salzburger Kunstverein summer artist in residence, have worked together to convert the main gallery into a large pond with various relating components, including coins taken from a turtle’s stomach, a cannon carried across the country by car, a lightbulb, a foggy morning, and naturally, fountains.

Geoffrey Farmer, born 1967 in Vancouver, lives and works in Vancouver.
Gareth Moore, born 1975 in Matsqui, British Columbia, lives and works in Vancouver.

(2) Kabinett

Felix Benedikt Sturm
Drop Zones

July 28–October 1
Opening: Friday, July 28, 8pm

Felix-Benedikt Sturm’s artwork is concerned with the manifestations and representations of political and social systems of order as well as the aesthetics those systems produce. The installation Drop Zones was developed out of his explorations of both existing and former borders within Europe, including his extended stays in no-man’s lands between states. The result is a sculptural field of tension between the aesthetics of nationalisms and hegemonic structures, on the one hand, and the dialectics of their abstraction on the other.

Felix-Benedikt Sturm, born 1988, lives and works in Linz.

(3) Ring Gallery

Nevin Aladağ
Five Stones Game

Until February 4, 2018

Based in Berlin, Nevin Aladağ uses everyday objects and situations as a starting point for her artworks, in which she deals with cultural and political codes, as well as their origins and histories. The artist made a full installation in all four corridors of the Ring Gallery, using banners depicting photographic images of the antique Asian game, Five Stones Game.

Nevin Aladağ is also showing her work this year at documenta 14 as well as at the Venice Biennale. Nevin Aladağ, born 1972 in Van, Turkey, lives and works in Berlin.

(4) Sunset Kino

Sunset Kino runs in an outdoor cinema pavilion adjacent to the Salzburger Kunstverein. Screenings start after sunset, every Wednesday, between July 12th to August 23rd. The focus is on contemporary art films and avant-garde cinema with the theme “I am not who I was not.” Picnic tables and a bar are on-site.
