Pascal Marcel Dreier
De Profundis – SCHAUFENSTER JUNGE KUNST
The starting point of De Profundis is a coincidental moment in which the animal industry and the culture industry touch each other in a cruel way. While pigs are being killed, a song can be heard that perhaps once described the self-empowerment of a human being. In the radio of the factory, however, the message of the song becomes obscured: it becomes the manic soundtrack of agrilogistics as a seemingly unstoppable machinery, whose echo, trapped in the exhibition space, continues to destructure itself. Using digital media, Pascal Marcel Dreier calls together an activist, an NGO, a major record company and a well-known musician to form an unusual crew. In the video installation, they are swept up in an enthralling maelstrom of facts and fictions, appropriations and counter-appropriations, in which their roles are constantly reconfigured.
Pascal Marcel Dreier (*1995) explores and tells more-than-human stories. To do so, he combines aspects of aesthetic research with activist, forensic, and ethnographic methods and uses a variety of media, such as 3D laser measurement data, artificial intelligence, bones, game engines, and experimental film and sound.
