To engage with the works of Aebersold and Handberg it is important to understand the real and the virtual as two co-existing realms, with sensory experience as a bridge between them. Using light and sound to erase the border between object and architecture, subject and surrounding, the two artists create something akin to a real virtuality.
Often presented without context these "virtualities" become platforms where solipsistic and intersubjective experiences merge into something intangible, inducing almost hypnotic states.
"In our installations we often create environments that resonates with spaces inside of ourselves or which we recognise in others. These environments invoke entirely different emotions even between the two of us and can vary from contemplative to anxious, euphoric to meditative or sometimes almost numinous.
Each installation tries to create its own frame of reference but a recurring topic for us is what comes before or after language. Where these environments might be seen as a manifestation of an emotion or inner space it is also exactly this space that induces a specific state or emotion onto us."
Markus Aebersold *1988 in Herzogenbuchsee (CH) & Chris Handberg *1989 in Skive (DK) graduated their BfA together from Institut Kunst HGK Basel in 2017
