Banz & Bowinkel – BIOS
27. 10. 2017 – 13. 1. 2018
Roehrs & Boetsch is pleased to present Banz & Bowinkel’s first solo exhibition ‘BIOS’ at the gallery.
‘BIOS’ stands for Basic Input/Output System, which is the first program a computer’s microprocessor uses to get the computer system started after turning it on. It is also the Greek word for ‘life’. In the four work groups shown in this exhibition, Banz & Bowinkel explore the relationship between the virtual and the real and its connection to the viewer.
For this purpose, the artists use cutting-edge technology to create interactive works reflecting and questioning the increasing dependency on tools. At the same time, the duo challenges conventional understanding of art disciplines and media, for example by superimposing a digital print with a moving augmented reality sculpture.
