When Keith W. Clancy describes in his essay „…NICHT DIESE TÖNE“: „To think of ‚tone‘ is to think of stretching, binding, threading, joining, weaving, netting – in short, tone is the result of a force having been applied to matter.“, he may speak of the musical tone, but he also shows the interface and relation of music and painting, because both work with exactly this.
Michael Graeve creates this point of intersection in his confrontation with Ludwig van Beethoven and his own artistic techniques, as a painter and as a sound artist. In this way he develops a tonal, painted and contemporary answer to questions arising from Ludwig van Beethoven’s compositional work and thus refers to the unsharpness in his late work.
The exhibition, which has been created especially for the ESSZIMMER, ultimately focuses on three concepts that are significant for Beethoven’s late artistic work:
> The Fragment > The Structure of Translation and > Memory and Remembering.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, the Australian Embassy in Berlin, the RMIT University and the Stiftung Kunst der Sparkasse in Bonn, whom we would like to thank.
