about

“on the other hand” is a virtual space filled with hands. They are suspended, in unnatural gestures and with unnatural scales. Due to their low-fi quality and their eerie poses, they can be perceived as abstract shapes, as landscape that can be navigated and explored. The origin of these hands is Menegon’s VR experience “keep in touch”, a moment in time was freezed and exported in hubs for everyone to access and explore. As VR headset in public spaces can’t be considered safe in current times, “keep in touch” is not an option but “on the other hand” is.

“on the other hand” opened to the public on April 12th 2020, with a live concert by Alexander Martinz as part of Hoops.net events organised by Matthew D. Gantt.

It has been also adapted for the exhibition Bunch of Kunst in Quarantine // Paradox Paradise: Liminal Latitudes, curated by Mara-Johanna Kölmel and Tina Sauerlaender

"Monumental hands in unnatural gestures and eerie poses form the backdrop for the exhibited works. The digital versions of the physical body parts address the liminality of the digital space between tactility and immateriality. So does the water surface, that is walkable here in the virtual space, but would make us sink in the physical realm."
- Mara-Johanna Kölmel and Tina Sauerlaender
