CRASH

CRASH

Flashing lights of the metropolis.
Stretched coaches cruise the steaming asphalt.
Never sure what they carry.
Hidden behind tinted glass.
Like whales they glide through crowded streets,
stolid and majestic.

Artworks inside a HUMMER stretch limo.

New Scenario is a dynamic platform for conceptual, time based and performative exhibition formats. It happens outside the realm of the white cube (physical and digital) and is meant to function as an extension to create new contextual meaning.
New Scenario is a project by artists Paul Barsch and Tilman Hornig.
Coming exhibitions will explore different unique and contrasting settings that are somewhat epic, extreme or just never where present in an exhibition context. Thus not all locations will be easily reachable or public every exhibition can be viewed online at newscenario.net and will have its unique web solution. New Scenario is aiming to create a special cinematic feel surrounding every new exhibition production by working collaborative with interesting artists, writers, musicians, photographers and coders.

C R A S H was hardly influenced by David Cronenbergs movie “Cosmopolis“ as well as the Aphex Twin music video “Windowlicker“ by Chris Cunningham. The intérieur of a stretch limosine is in every way contrasting the concept of the white cube, but at the same time providing the same kind of anonymity. (Instead of being neutral its over styled, instead of being wide and open its narrow and tiny, instead of being concrete its mobile, instead of bright its dim, …. )
Stretch Limos hold a certain mystery due to its massive physical presence but isolated inner core (similar to artworks in a way)
By inviting the selected artist and writers we were trying to create an overall narrative atmosphere, so that all the artworks can be seen together as artifacts of some fictional happening/gathering/story but still work independently.
