Artist In Residence
From May until June 2012, IMPAKT was happy to host artist in residence Linda Franke (1980). In her work, she uses humor and performance as strategies of endearment. Clichés from soaps and propaganda are dissected in an absurdist manner with a disturbing combination of existential questions asked in the hyper artificial world of 3D-animation.
During her residency in Utrecht, she was not only using her synthesizer to test the patience of her neighbors but she’s also produced two video works: Can’t Stop and You as an Anarchistic Dynamo in the Coordinate System.
Both works were on view in the weekend of 8 to 10 June, at Setup’s exhibition space, Oudegracht 183, Utrecht. There, during this CVLT Festival weekend, we also saw a presentation of the premiere of these videos.
