... Karin Ferrari will create a digital video work at the Talstation Congress of the Innsbruck Nordkettenbahn (Nordkette Cable Car). In her works, Ferrari repeatedly deals with content between pop and everyday culture. The artist, who works in New York, Paris, and Rum, communicates socially critical topics with humorous ease, but always pointedly. In her works, she particularly deals with conspiracy theories, spirituality, esotericism and similar (web) phenomena. At this extraordinary first exhibition of the omg ibk "frei.raum.ge(h)stalten. – digital ways out of the analogue crisis", the unmistakable architecture of Zaha Hadid and the brilliant work of Karin Ferrari – two of the most important artists of our time – enter into dialogue with each other.
