Aram Bartholl: “Offline Art” @ Xpo Gallery, Paris

Offline Art” ist das neue Ausstellungsformat von Aram Bartholl – präsentiert in der Pariser Xpo Gallery (bis 14. März): “Web based art works will be accessible via wireless network but disconnected from the internet. A high profile selection of 14 artists of various “Internet generations” (Cory Arcangel, Kim Asendorf, Claude Closky, Constant Dullaart, Dragan Espenschied, Faith Holland, JODI, Olia Lialina, Jonas Lund, Evan Roth, Phil Thompson, Emilie Gervais & Sarah Weis) – who are all working digitally and online – will present recent and new works. Browser-based digital art works are broadcast locally from wifi routers which are not connected to the Internet. Each art work is assigned a single wifi router which is accessible through any device, like smart-phones, tablets or laptops. To access the different art works, the visitor has to connect to each network individually. The name of the network reflects the name of the artist. No matter what URL is opened, only the specific artwork appears in the browser. A small web server holding the art piece is installed on a USB flash drive which is connected to the router. Like frames holding the art, the routers are hung in the exhibition space which is otherwise empty. The art itself becomes visible only on the visitor’s private screen.”
