‘Very early glitch art’ – Fabio Paris, Curator, Link Art Center :
The first time I met STATION ROSE (Elisa and Gary) was at Kunsthaus Langenthal (CH), at the opening of the exhibition Megarave Metarave (2014), curated by my friend Raffael Dörig. There I saw their installation, a re-enactment of their piece 'Gunafa Clubbing' (1992/2014), which encapsulated their pioneering work in the realm of public multimedia from the 1990s onwards: a combination of livestreaming, computer art, interactive media and webcasting. Viewing this installation in person, I could immediately see that they were among the precursors of glitch art.
I invited Elisa and Gary to take part in '6pm your Local Time Europe', http://www.6pmyourlocaltime.com/, a one-night contemporary art event that took place simultaneously at different locations across Europe, coordinated from one central venue and document- ed online via a web application. STATION ROSE participated from Vienna with PIXEL HOME 2.0, a presentation of the book NEXT Digital Quarter Century in a media sculpture in the outdoor area of KUNST HAUS WIEN GARAGE. Based on their concept of New Media Arte Povera (nMAP) which has been abusing turbo capitalism since 2008, STATION ROSE has now extended its operating scope to Pixel Land Art. This event was also dominated by network culture and the techno- scene, telepresence and parties.
