NOW by Olivio Sarikas
31. August 2016 19:00 bis 22:00
NOW is a highly visual and intense work, that turns the gallery into a room that looks back at the viewer. The hidden landscape of hundreds
of eyes, looking at us through social media, becomes real and engulfs
us in this fascinating work. Yet the simplicity of this installation
makes it a very captivating and personal experience – almost like a mantra.
Negroponte’s „Daily Me“ has been turned around by social media, to a
golden cage in which every person becomes the center of attention. We
are the Mona Lisa, the Madonna, the Hercules. No longer do we look at
the walls of the gallery. The walls of the gallery look at us.
Waiting, expecting, observing. Because when culture is live, there is
no space for an intermediate form. It is NOW, we are NOW.

The exhibition will be hosted until 2nd of September.
About the artist:
Between 1996 and 2004 Olivio Sarikas studied fine art at the academy of Munich and Vienna. He worked on his Ph.D. between 2005 and 2009 specializing in the effects of social media on the personal
photography of individuals (not finished). In recent years Olivio
worked as a web designer and Ad campaign designer, formulating the
concept of organic marketing. After 6 years of intense discord with
the concepts of modern art, he comes back with a series of works that
heavily includes the audience and draws the core of the work directly
from the involvement of everybody.
