Distinction of space time continuum in the work of Ariane Trümper in Pula

MP3 platform, News

In this scenographic sound and video installation the impossible seems to be possible, to change time. The idea for “Heute wird Morgen Gestern sein” evolved during an artist residence in the outermost East of Germany, in Sachsen. Due to the yarn and fabric industry a flourishing area in the 19th century and during the GDR, is the region since the reunification of Germany imprinted by a decrease of industry and residence, as well as an increase of unemployment. Sarcastically it was known under the title ‘the valley of the clueless.’ A title that stems from GDR times, as it was one of the regions in which Western television and radio could barely be received. During her stay in this area Ariane Trümper experienced a paradox mood, that could maybe be described as a longing for the better times of the past, a directly connected dissatisfaction about a current state, mixed with a fear of change.

The only solution to solve such a paradox would be to turn back time, to change into a future that is already known, that is safe and not surprising. This certainly impossible task can be explored through the sensory, performative installation work “Heute wird Morgen Gestern sein.” Time will be seemingly flowing backwards, disabling the rules of space and time. Images will be rerouted through media, changing their truth and perceptions will be challenged. An interactive experience that invites the spectator to explore an impossible wish and the destructive or constructive potential of events. This project is produced as part of the Summer Sessions Network for Talent Development in a co-production of Metamedia Association and V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media.

The Rotterdam / NL based scenographer and artist Ariane Trümper (1984) studied fashion design in Berlin, worked for several years as film professional in Germany and France and graduated 2014 Cum Laude with a MA Scenography at the Frank Mohr Institute (FMI) in Groningen. Ariane’s work is situated on the intersection between media art and performance design, researching perceptive and performative processes filtered through our bodies and technology. She received grants from i.e. the Centre of Fine Arts Rotterdam for her research on the experience of space through sound, is part of the German performance collective Monster Control District and the Dutch research group Platform-Scenography. Ariane is regularly tutoring, i.e. at the HKU Utrecht / NL, as well as the University Hildesheim / DE.
