The Individual Revolution

2017

A city is not only experienced by its facades and infrastructures, but more so through their residents. They are the content that  often gets lost in futuristic ideologies, even though they are the heart of such a construct. It’s made by them, for them and around them.This work discusses what human life in a city in 100 years from now will be like. It dwells upon the idea of the positive influences machines can have on our lives, how through technical advances we are allowed more time to be humans, homo sapiens. The focus in this vision, of a peaceful cohabit of machines and humans, lies on people working towards a higher consciousness by putting forward their basic instincts.

ENG

Danielle Küchler Flores is a Swiss-Mexican artist. Brought up between two cultures she developed a great interest in understanding the human condition and his/her relation to the complex system that is society. She completed her first studies in Film and Digital Media in Melbourne, Australia and followed up with a MFA at the Art Academy in Basel, Switzerland. 

Her work examines the dance of the individual and his surrounding, evolves around the emotive state of the inside of the human and how it translates into the structure of society and induces a sense of alienation to observe socio-existential topics. Küchler Flores uses technical media to emphasise the discrepancy between the warm, the humane content and the inorganic, cold format.

DEU

Im Zentrum ihrer Arbeit steht der Mensch und das was ihn bewegt. Das Zusammenspiel aus verschiedensten Individuen und deren Bedürfnissen ist zentraler Bestandteil ihrer künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung. Die Emotionalität des Einzelnen steht in steter Wechselwirkung mit der Allgemeinheit. Diese Auseinandersetzung zwischen dem Individuum und der Gesellschaft thematisiert sie in ihrer künstlerischen Praxis. So bezieht sich die Künstlerin auch auf ihre persönlichen Empfindungen ihres Umfelds.

Küchler Flores wählt ihr technisches Medium sorgfältig aus, um die Diskrepanz zwischen Individuum und Gesellschaft aufzugreifen. Das Menschliche und Organische wird durch die Kälte des unorganischen Mediums untermalt.
