To tackle human crises and extreme situations, the Vienna-based artist team hoelb/hoeb invents extensive space installations operating at the intersection between visual art, everyday life, and performance. In their most recent work LOSS_expands – coping with grief, visitors move across a 30-metre-long grief corridor – a direction system and non-space[1] acting as a meeting zone, exhibition display and dispositive – and subsequently meet digital doppelgangers of individual experts from the fields of art, cultural sciences, philosophy, hospices, permanent vegetative states, and care work.

INFO: The show on April 23rd is followed by an artist talk.

LOSS_expands – coping with grief is an open field of experimentation that visualises codes, ciphers, and intersections between life and art while at the same time showing a variety of grief processes in a sophisticated game of proximity and distance, shifting perspectives, and associative links.

The artistic work of hoelb/hoeb focuses on the realisation of inter- and trans-disciplinary projects aiming at the generation of communication spaces and involving a broad public in various processes of occupation. In terms of methodology, they employ procedures that combine artistic means of expression (photography/video, installation) and performance practices. By including experts from the fields of art, science, and social practice in the creation of their projects, they initiate transgressive processes in their work and its communication.
