EXSCTA

"Simone Carneiro’s works, entitled EXCSTA, are based on the artist’s experiments with different apparatuses and the possibilities of creating visual motifs that, on the one hand, expand the moments of control and chance in the artistic process and, on the other hand, interrogate and explore the relationship between visual abstraction and technology. In doing so, Simone Carneiro has resorted to an image repertoire that she created in 2004 and 2008 and has now reissued. They are selected images from video material that was produced by means of hacked audio / video hardware at the Experimental Television Center in New York using legendary devices such as Nam June Paik’s Wobbulator, a manipulated television from 1970, and the Image Processor by Dan Sandin, a video synthesizer from 1973.  

 

The concept of temporal assignability of specific aesthetics, as art history tries to do, becomes absurd. Throughout her work, the artist suggests that time should be cyclical in itself, as the various modes of remix and feedback used in her artistic practice go beyond simple montage and technical tricks, and can also be thought of in a figurative sense. An inexhaustible source of abstract motifs, sometimes lithographed, overshadows the reproductive character of the old printing process and undermines the conventional aesthetic encoding of the original and the duplicate."
