CV 


Hannah Neckel, based online as @voidgirl69 is a Transmedia Artist
merging online & offline worlds in aesthetic bliss ✨ 



Her multimedia XXXperiences seduce into a dreamy hyper space where the digital sphere of the internet and the physical world merge.

The Internet as a utopian place of longing serves as the starting point for the desire for freedom that manifests itself in the works and is generated in an interplay of online and offline footage.

The real space becomes an extended virtual reality and a place of refuge that confronts user:inside with their own emotionality *~good vibes only~* The aesthetics of the internet spill into the space as if from a glass, overflowing and overlapping, merging with the surrounding like the layers of a Photoshop file.
In her intermedia approach, 3D scans, symbols and aesthetics of digital subculture become aesthetic mood, online becomes physical practice, always searching for dialogues: between IRL and URL,  innovative technology and users, but above all between-human ~relatable~ emotions.  

Hannah Neckel studies Transmedia Art at the University of Applied Arts in the class Brigitte Kowanz / Jakob Lena Knebl,
based forever online <3

She is a member of the interdisciplinary artist-led collective room69 developing new and progressive exhibition formats, new media arts and installation.

auratic flow is a digital room installation featuring 3 sculptures, a heart, a tribal and one graffiti found in the 3d scanned room, superimposed by a text sculpture reading "i don't want reality".

Pink water flows from the translucent sculptures, frozen in time creating a fluid auratic experience. Space and Time melt together through the voyager to embrace the aura of the work. The objects in itself become auratized only by human influence.

Transformed by the reproduction of the digital space, the unique becomes a mass phenomenon.

They replace the involuntary memory with the familiarity of the images, at the same time remove any distance from the work and it's embedding in tradition.

Because of the digital availability, the work no longer belongs to the past, but is always present, admittedly in an empty time.

In the context of the accumulation of data and the massification of information, the heart becomes a device of our self. And within this device the aesthetic is also social - an element of cultural hegemony. By connecting to the device we stand for the central cultural quality of global consciousness

Bless'ed Curse is a massively multiplayer, decentralized project organized by @greedy_rigor and @rhizomeparkinggarage.

Unfolding across the sprawling grounds + interior of a fantasy complex, 23 international artists and artist projects come together to co-create a liminal space that hovers just outside of reality. The result is a polyvocal chorus punctuated by both sullen and sublime intensities - ranging from performances to installations and digital work ❦

In their latest installment of exhibitions, the artist collective @r00m69 is pleased to present 𝖎 𝖜𝖎𝖘𝖍 𝖞𝖔𝖚 𝖜𝖊𝖗𝖊 𝖓𝖔𝖙 𝖍𝖊𝖗𝖊, a Google Street View based hybrid intervention and virtual experience. Topologies of virtual space that mirror real-world locales have evolved into a new architectural arena for the creation, exhibition, distribution and experiencing of art. These virtual landscapes, however uncontrolled, uncurated, unmanaged, pull on the atmosphere of the physical areas in which they are anchored, toying at protest and deconstruction, and push beyond the appearance of “the real.”

everytime i get close it disappears 


drawing from the yearning for connection and experience, the digital sculptures play with the intangibility of virtuality. a space the visitors can experience, wander around in, but never fully be a part of. its the ultimate in disassociation, the dissolution of the physical.

there is no physical for these sculptures to become. materiality in a simulated reality becomes apparent. the virtual world of the exhibition being covered in bright green fog, the works only appear through exploration, being hidden in the depths. just like the immateriality of the fog, the internet is intangible.

Is the first part of a 3 level show of the room69 collective for this years Wrong biennale. In addition to the collectives members they invited several international digital artists to accompany them in experiencing virtual extremes.
Under the topic of overstimulation and oversimulation the digital show hosted in New Art City creates a paradoxical situation and oscillates between the highs and lows of our virtual worlds. 
On one hand dealing with being exposed to a perpetual stream of information and image online and addressing the problems that come with it - like cognitive and mental incapability to endure the data flood - the works itself are adding fuel to the flames and making issues even more obvious.


On the other hand there is our desire for eternity, breaking up physical boundaries. Embracing the simulation, dematerialize and eventually transcend through our virtual avatars into utopia. 
By putting these concepts next to each other the contrast gets even more exaggerated ending up in a digital near death experience that gives a perception of what might be there to come.

“doggy” is a staged re-perforance of  “Aus der Mappe der Hundigkeit” by Valie Export (1968) in collaboration with curator Anika Meier, a reflection on the role of women in Austrian society over the last 50 years and how it has changed since.

Immediately after the first Lockdown in Vienna in 2020, the touristic Schönbrunn Palace Park was reopened to the public at that time. Just as people found solace and connection in the online world during lockdown times, they now returned en masse to this public place that had been denied them for months. This constant being online had a profound impact on society, with the type of content we consumed there having a lasting effect on how we viewed the world.

The performance confronts passersby who have been exclusively online for months with a kind of female representation in public that is usually reserved for online spaces, exploring how they react in contrast online and offline. Online, we are desensitized to a certain oversexualized image of women that in physical life evokes shock, shame, and aggression in public. The reaction to this performance is a kind of violence against the representation of femininity.

Provocation and aggression are means of pointing out social ills and stimulating discussion. However, the Internet offers women the opportunity to present themselves as they would like to be seen - to establish the female gaze as an alternative to the male-dominated physical reality in this space and to generate a feminist utopia online.

THE ONLY TIME YOU SEE ME IS IN MY DREAMS centres around a VR sculpted heart, expanding its structures, encapsulating a fragment of a poem reading "reality is melting away before my eyes", dipped into a soft glow. The poem is continued in the title THE ONLY TIME YOU SEE ME IS IN MY DREAMS. The euphoric idea of the unlimited possibilities of the information infatuation, finds an expression in the metaphors of the virtual sculpture, utilizing internet aesthetics to visualize the yearning for connection and community. Emotions are the transcendental element of the contemporary condition, humanity is striving towards a future distinguished by connectedness.
