Simultaneous Sublime

Two residents of Schloss Ringenberg exhibited their work in the Simultanhalle in Köln. The work of Clea Stracke and Verana Seibt amazed and confused us. It seemed that we were in two different dimensions at the same time. For the duration of the visit we were in coinciding realities. The video was taking us to the Ludwig Museum in Köln where  a male visitor was overwhelmed by the artworks he perceived. The subliminal experience he had could be observed by visitors of the Simultanhalle, but not quite,  we as visitors were drawn into this experience, or even better, their own experience. The film and the site specific aspects strengthened the impact the work already had. Art at its best: to be lifted up and smacked down.
