“We can hear even before we’re born. The idea of “hearing the land” convinced the jury. Everything has its sound, every tree, every drop of water, even the motorway. A wonderful confrontation with a region in Salzburg that is documented, recorded and continued, and also with the consequence of depicting the contrasts of seeing and hearing”.

from the jury statement for the competition “Wahre Landschaft”, Land Salzburg, 2018

 

A combination of photography and sound recordings creates a modern landscape that can be visited at the website.

An  acoustic walk

The region of Strudengau is a wild and romantic countryside along the Danube in Ober-  and Niederösterreich (upper and lower Austria). The Strudengau is a historic countryside, well known for its former danube trumoils. Now its an inside, nearly forgotten tip for hikers and slow tourism. AUDIOLANDSCHAFT STRUDENGAU is presenting this artificial landscape in an auditive way.

A combination of photography and sound recordings creates a modern landscape. The wild water of the Danube (the region is called after this former dangerous zone) is under control, but the Strudengau continues its way. Calm, sharp and  unstoppable.

More than 100 soundscapes taken in the region of Strudengau (upper / lower Austria), combined with simultanously taken images. The archive is published on a website.

Photography, each 45x30cm, Social Media (Instagram), model, 2016 – ongoing
Since the opening of his WHITE_BOX_OPEN_SPACE gallery, Roland Wegerer has been showing a series of space-consuming installations, using digital space in the process. In the online gallery, proportions change and everyday objects are elevated to the status of exhibits solely through their positioning. WHITE_BOX_OPEN_SPACE is an experiment with shifts in meaning and a critical examination of the art system. Here, perception, validity and success are only a question of dimension and perspective. The actual art in this game between reality and image, however, is the digital image, its reception and its distribution. Wegerer playfully explores the potential of social media as a means of self-empowerment for artists. An Instagram direct link becomes an admission ticket to a globally available exhibition space, terminals with online access to visualization tools.
