Mario Mauroner Contemporary Art Vienna
The art collective LAb[au] is composed of Manuel Abendroth, Jérôme Decock and Els Vermang and based in Brussels, Belgium. In their practice, the artists investigate the relation between art and language not only by means of written words and other forms of coded language, semantics, but also through signs, or semiotics. Likewise, they take a linguistic approach, employing information and communication science in the field of art.
LAb[au] studies the transformation of architecture and space-time structures in harmony with technological development using a MetaDeSIGN (meta = information about information) is the theme of space constructions in relation to information processes; architecture as code/transposition of inFORMation processes in n-dimensional form.
Like a lexicographer LAb[au] deploys arrays of books, exploring the infinite combinations of shapes and indexing possible ways to fill, to blacken, an empty white page. Thus, their rule-based approach questions the materiality, process and concept of art. LAb[au]´s pratice is rooted in the tradition of conceptual art, where tautologies and fundamental units such as space and time consitute the artistic vocabulary. Through the use of algorithms the artists contextualize these notions in our contemporary world.
LAb[au]´s art is part of public and private art collections worldwide and has been exhibited in some of the most prestigious art venues, such as MOMA (New York, 2014), the Mussée d`Art Contemporain (Montreal 2014), the Venice Biennal (2013), Fondation Vasarely (Aix-en-Provence, 2010), Singapore Art Museum (Singapore, 2010), BOZAR (Brussels, 2009+2010), TENT./ Witte de With (Rotterdam, 2006), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris, 2004+2005), New Museum (New York, 2003), Louvre (Paris, 2000) and many more.
