“Helle Nacht” Museum Baden (CH) – Opening of the elevator installation “up and down” by LAUTESkollektiv
Opening of the elevator installation “up and down” by the artist duo LAUTESkollektiv
8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.: Vernissage of “auf und ab” with live performance and music
Groundbreaking technical achievement, floating transfer capsule between above and below and not infrequently witness to countless events in a very small space: From a sociological and cultural-historical point of view, the elevator is more than just a vertical means of transport.
In the interdisciplinary art installation «up and down», the elevator itself becomes the protagonist: it is located in a spa hotel in Baden from yesteryear and, as the events progress, grows beyond its traditional role as a soulless machine to even become the mastermind itself…
«auf und ab» is a sound installation by the LAUTES collective, Laura Haensler (design) and Stephanie Haensler (composition), who have been realizing interdisciplinary projects since 2019: design questions composition, contemporary music meets object art, the audible is reflected in the visible.
The work will be interpreted by the Eunoia Quintet: Johanna Greulich: soprano, Ellen Fallowfield: cello, Clemens Hund-Göschel: piano, Stephen Menotti: trombone, Louisa Marxen: drums
Laura Haensler and Stephanie Haensler, the installation can be seen in the Historical Museum Baden from November 6th to 23rd, 2022.
