Artist: Johannes Vogl
The sculpture „Untitled (Glade)“ consists of an octagonal camouflage net, which is mounted like a baldachin on a field, holded by a construction of steel rods.
The camouflage net is not wearing the typical military pattern, but consists of an 8 x 8 m large textile, into which, as with pixels, the image of a clearing in the woods, seen from the ground, was punched and cut out.
Once you enter the area under the baldachin, a lightdrawing appears in the sky . It appears, as you walk into a clearing in a dense forest, but on the sides the construction of this illusion is seen.
The octagonal shape of the sculpture refers to the floor plan of nomadic yurts, as well as the cassette paintings of Baroque churches.
This creates an oasis in an urban surrounding.

About been out, vol. 1
been out, vol. 1 is an all-arts competition for young artists exploring the parameters of art in the generation of digital natives. In these times of cross media and viral marketing, the open competition been out, vol. 1, organised by Bohème Précaire in cooperation with 2010LAB.tv, questions the art of the digital natives. Do they still know the meaning of art? Is there still a trade based on art?
According to the free-associating motto “go out, be out, include the outside”, the applicants should question and revalue the gridlocked meanings of urbanity, arts, architecture, and private and public sphere.
kunst.labor is the online-gallery of been out, vol. 1.
