Kira A. Princess of Prussia Foundation Features Videoconstructions (1978)
We were honored to participate in Bet Alpha, a group exhibition curated by Ory Dessau and produced by Kira A. Princess of Prussia Foundation in Vienna Austria (September 30 – October 7, 2023).
This exhibition featured Buky’s seminal VideoConstructions (1978).Bet Alpha revolves around the idea of ‘exhibition as place’, amounting to an experience of both concrete and abstract locale. The title points to a primary state of things – in Hebrew Bet Alpha stands for The House of Alpha – as well as a disruptive framework when read as the inversion of the term Alphabet.
Unfolding a wide range of projected entities in space, from cinema to video, to recorded performance, Bet Alpha includes works by artists of different backgrounds. Unfolding a wide range of projected entities in space, from cinema to video, to recorded performance, Bet Alpha includes works by artists of different backgrounds. Moving between spaces the presentation becomes a sort of film in itself edited and re-edited irregularly in accordance to the contingent movement of the viewers in real time. It shifts back and forth between the real and the imaginary, the material and the virtual, through different forms of projection and display, as well as a few sculptural interventions. Representing the fully material pole of Bet Alpha the sculptural interventions anchor the presentation within a physical ground which is abandoned and rediscovered time and again.
The exhibition is part of Festival Nights, a series of concerts and multidisciplinary performances organised by acclaimed international violinist and composer Yury Revich at Heidi Horten Collection and in collaboration with RS Opportunities at Villa Mautner-Jäger.
