Kalas Liebfried | Ambient As A Method: A Listening Session

In his lecture and listening session, Kalas Liebfried will give insights into his methodology and artistic research for recent works like „Ambient for a Silent Forest“ (Pinakothek der Moderne Munich, 2019), „Corps-à-Corps feat. MC Nancy“ (Kunstverein Munich, 2018) and his sound work „Ports in Transition“ for the festival „Movement (1920-2020)“ (commissioned by the Onassis Foundation and the Goethe-Institute Athens, in cooperation with the Lenbachhaus Munich).

Kalas Liebfried’s interdisciplinary works focus on the installative connection of sculptures, objects, composed sound and its performative staging. They emerge from the appropriation, decoding and montage of found footage as a conceptual foundation. His examination of minimal and ambient music opens a path towards an artistic production, which considers environmental and background aesthetics as a dialectic method: the surroundings, the atmosphere – all that, what is considered as obvious and given – assumes a mediating role. Works which arise within this context own a dynamic relation to space: they refer to a specific site and to a poetic thinking space at the same time. In comparison, the time structure of ‘ambient’ is static and enables a de-temporalization. Translating and decoding these spatiotemporal structures into the interplay of diverse media enables the evolution of an ambient methodology. Its intention is to create a singular system, which generates new works, links and intensities through itself involving the recipients as an active and dynamic part.

Kalas Liebfried (born 1989 in Svishtov, Bulgaria) works and lives in Munich, Germany. He holds a degree in Philosophy from the LMU Munich, and studied Sculpture and Time-Based Media with Stephan Huber, Julian Rosefeldt and Alexandra Bircken at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. Liebfried’s works have recently been exhibited at Pinakothek der Moderne, Nir Altman Gallery (solo), Haus der Kunst and Kunstverein Munich. In 2019 he received the Erwin und Gisela von Steiner-Foundation award and the Bavarian Culture Prize (Kulturpreis Bayern).
