GALERIE is an immaterial art gallery dealing exclusively with immaterial artworks. Galerie represents artistic practices that mainly manifest through performative formats. The mission of Galerie is to support and promote immaterial objecthood: works that cannot be reduced to material objects nor the documentation of an action. Galerie circulates artworks by representing them as well as offering them for sale. In collaboration with the artists, economical formats and “representations” are tailored to each artwork, offering unique opportunities for the artwork to extend and disseminate on its own terms.

Group Show is an exhibition of immaterial artworks in the format of a performance.The artworks span over a wide range of media like dance, therapy, poetry, conflict and others.All of which could fit into the category of what we call immaterial artworks.

This «Fun & Fury!» Performance Dienst-Tag / To-Do's Day is part of the program It Takes All The Fucking Time curated by Michelangelo Miccolis (IT).

With the term «living installations», Marcel Zaes aims to conceptualize a novel form of artistic practice within the visual arts which transgresses the boundaries of sound art, classical composition, performance and installation art. Zaes uses the concept to describe those of his works that blend the ephemeral character of sound art with the three-dimensionality and site-specificity of installation art. The resulting oscillation between the performative, as embodied by the performers employed, and between the installative, represented by the various objects placed in the scene, is what constitutes the «living» and the «installation» elements of this new genre. In merging objects and human performers into plain sound-producing elements, both components are transformed into living sculptures; hierarchically equivalent constituents of a single, living space.
