Brandl Painting-Object in MerzWelt Exhibition in Cabaret Voltaire
Here is one photo of the Painting-Object (titled 45s Drawer) which I have in the MerzWelt exhibition in the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. The CB is an art center in the original space which was indeed a cabaret where Dada was created in Zurich in 1916. The show is an homage to Kurt Schwitters and his Merzbau(en). The show is from 14 April –21 August 2011. It includes many artists whose works are exhibited within a kind of Merzbau filling the space, made of cardboard. In my piece there are about 20 45s represented life-sized and 5 movable separate movable ones, including one not seen here which is an homage to Schwitters's Ursonata, titled Urblues. All are my own inventions of potential 45s that do not, however, exist. Such as a Garage Rock version of John Cage's 4'33" of Silence, Marcel Duchamp's Erratum Musical, The Handcuffs, "Meet Brandl," a single of my PhD dissertation, a record by my pets and more.
