Martin Heuser, Vernissage

Vernissage, Utställning

Utställningen visar videoverk av Martin Heuser (f.1979, Brasilien), kompositör och konstnär som just nu gör sin master i fri konst på Konsthögskolan Valand.

The exhibition shows works made in the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009: Everybody's Happy Nowadays, Two-Minute Porn, Teatergatan and Golden Shower. These works represent to a certain point an attempt at answering the question "what is it that exists now that can be seen as a sign of dystopia?". This is done both by interpreting reality and by direct references to the writers George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.


Everybody's Happy Nowadays.
Video, 35 minutes
In this video, a sentence taken from Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' is endlessly repeated by performer Javier Marisco. The specific actions of drinking rum and smiling to the camera are repeated in accordance with a time signal. Though planned to last one hour, the performance had to be interrupted at 35 minutes.

Two-Minute Porn
Video, 2 minutes
Short video entirely made out of subliminal messages: stills from gay porn movies. The images are most of the time too fast to be consciously recognized. The title of this piece comes from the book 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' by George Orwell, which had the 'Two-Minute Hate', a way of brainwashing in form of propaganda films, not very different from Second War propaganda or TV news and advertising.

Teatergatan
Digital prints
On a Monday night in December Véronique Malo and Martin Heuser witnessed a disturbing event at Teatergatan. Their parallel stories are succinctly told in double sided postcards.

Golden Shower
Video, 11 minutes
On a Saturday night in January 2009 a hidden camera was installed at one of the entrances of Valand School of Fine Arts facing Teatergatan. The chosen spot is very popular among the main avenue club goers for street urination. Can surveillance be fetish?
This work was planned in cooperation with Malina Cailean and Steven Ladouceur.
