WHITE_BOX_OPEN_SPACE @ The Wrong Biennale

This is my first participation within a biennale! – and it’s the largest art biennale worldwide!

the wrong new digital art biennale is a global event aiming to nurture digital culture today.

the wrong is open from november 01st 2019 until march 1st 2020.

You can visit my project “WHITE_BOX_OPEN_SPACE” right now, online at the Very Large Works Pavillion!

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.

“the wrong just might be the world’s largest art biennale – the digital world’s answer to la biennale di venezia” 

the new york times 22/o1/2o18

Digital Collages, C-Print, 30×30 cm, 2018

This series takes the phenomenon of the Selfies a step further. The artist transforms and deforms his selfie by using apps on his mobile phone. Questions about image, storytelling and self-optimization are ignored. These images asking about self-image-deconstruction and self-reflectation by looking in a “mirror”.

An  acoustic walk


“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. 

More than 50 soundscapes habe been taken in the region of Pongau, combined with simultanously taken images. The archive is published on a website.

The region of Pongau is part of the state Salzburg in Austria.
