The Snarl Show: Paintings by Melanie Mandl. The Snarl Show is a series of paintings that follows eye contact between one and another. It is a contest with no judges or points, but only understanding. The touching of teeth combined with extreme vocalization and things are set right again. Symbolic violence. Blowing off steam. Venting of feelings. Release. Inspiration for a painting.
Station. Stop-motion video and sound installation by Melanie Mandl and David Bach. Stations is an ongoing video project which depicts abandoned and forgotten machines in otherworldly environments.
