Bach in Arts - Hommage a Bach

Art-1794

Type:

Bach Installation

Title:

Bach-Gould-Hahn

Description:

The London gallery Vilma Gold had converted its second-floor space into a mini-theater, playing a 38-minute-long vid by the 30-something German artist Sascha Hahn called Bach/Gould/Hahn. An archive of found imagery, Bach/Gould/Hahn mixes together snapshots, pictures of well-known art works, photos of celebrities and stills from television, books and newspapers in 30 different sections with apparently arbitrary subtitles like "White Trash," "Space" and "Safe and Effective Medication," all accompanied by a soundtrack of music by, no surprise, Bach and Glenn Gould.
The piece -- a kind of free-associative cultural history -- seems to have a mesmerizing effect on viewers, and four from the edition of five have already been sold, at prices beginning at $3,500 and rising to $6,000.

Sascha Hahn employ classical music as a conceptual tool. In his work Bach-Gould-Hahn (2006), Sascha Hahn (Neuss, Germany, 1979) offers a kaleidoscopic montage of existing visual material, thematically arranged in thirty ‘chapters’ – a direct reference to the thirty key variations of Bach’s Goldberg Variations (BWV 988). The artist provides a broad associative inventory of decisive moments in contemporary cultural production.
