Rolf Julius

Further Away (Music for the Glance Downward)
Rolf Julius, who was born in Wilhelmshaven in 1939 and has been living in Berlin since the 1980s, studied at the Kunsthochschule in Berlin. Familiar with the most recent developments in contemporary music through the pioneering work of Hans Otte within the scope of Pro musica nova for Radio Bremen, in the 1970s, Julius began to integrate sounds and noises as crucial vocabulary into his artistic language. For decades, he has been one of the most important protagonists of an art that is capable of tuning artistic spaces into an atmosphere of precise concentration by way of an open approach to different media.

In 1991, the year of the Weserburg’s founding, Rolf Julius created a complex spatial installation including works from the Finkenberg Collection especially for the spaces on the top floor of the museum. The installation continues to be one of the museum’s special spatial experiences.

In the current exhibition, which is on display in the project room of the Weserburg and at the Beim Steinernen Kreuz Gallery, Julius stages a dialogue between sound and image. Sequences of water surfaces filmed by the artist, their vacillations flanked by a sound composition being played backwards, will be shown on flatscreen monitors. The media interact to transform the space, which expands and concentrates in consonance.

In cooperation with the Beim Steinernen Kreuz Gallery | Brigitte Seinsoth, the Weserburg is presenting new works by Rolf Julius at two venues
