From the Austrian Cultural Forum:
Gregor Graf’s exploration of urban architecture involves taking medium format images of mundane urban settings and painstakingly removing all text and symbolic references from the image, producing an anonymous and generic metropolis, yet evoking a sense of familiarity. In 2006 Graf was commissioned by the Visual Arts Platform to produce a new work during a residency in London. For his first UK solo show at the Austrian Cultural Forum London, Graf will exhibit new photographs of London along with other new works produced during a residency in Chicago, bringing together exploration of this two huge and complex urbanscapes.

In an effort to establish new platforms for public art and performance, the
multimedia duo SWEATSHOPPE has developed a new interactive technology that enables
them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture. Dubbed
“video painting”, this technology allows them to essentially “paint” video onto any
surface. Shooting in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, the duo spent weeks
documenting their work in urban settings to create “The Landing” the first in a
series of episodes that showcases their work as artist, technologist and performers.
This video shows 4 full uncut extra clips from the landing.

With ‘Noir’ Sit returns to his bold black & whites, examining the troubled relation between the animal kingdom and mankind even closer. This time around his work is focused on the magnificent beauty of the beast and the way it is used to serve the vanity that is intricate to humanity.
The result is a haunting series that is simultaneously sexy and morbid. The sensual textures of fur and feathers are juxtaposed with pale animal skulls and soft female curves to illustrate the malicious blackness gnawing away at the edges of our sense of beauty.
