In his artistic practice Felix Kindermann (*1978) analyzes the influence of media representations on the individual, the body and the social relations. With an intermedial approach he explores the social relevance of contemporary visual culture.
With the exhibition “Separated” the artist transforms the studio space 45 cbm at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden to a video-sound installation. Four musicians of the Brussels Zerkalo quartet play separately the Kreutzer Sonata by Czech composer Leoš Janáček, a romantic composition that refers to the eponymus novel by Leo Tolstoy. The separation and the subsequent recomposition of musical ensamble traces the tension between romantic image, individualistic concept of life and social structures.
