Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary at Augarten shows the newly acquired video composition The Visitors (2012) by Ragnar Kjartansson. A group of musicians gather in the grandiose and decaying twilight zone of Rokeby farm in Upstate New York for a layered portrait of the artist’s friends and an exploration of musical cinema. The nine visitors take up various spaces indoors and out, each one inhabiting a separate yet very distinct setting, playing various instruments and singing as if to themselves the piece’s main tune. It is only in the synchronization of the nine channels that the voices and instruments merge into a harmonic orchestration and together with the life size projections turn it into an overall impression in the gallery. March 8 - June 16, 2013.
