Text ("If this is the answer, what is the question ?")

The Austrian artist LIA - one of the early pioneers of software and internet art - produces digital art, interactive installations and sound art. Her internet projects combine the tradition of drawing and painting with the aesthetics of digital icons and algorithms. Her style is characterized by a minimalist quality with an affinity to conceptual art.

"Transition 89" is an audiovisual cooperation between LIA and the musical group @c alias Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais. @c created the composition "89", which serves as the basis for the work, during an artist residency in Portugal, where the musicians were inspired by the ecological, architectural and cultural contexts of the Fujaco region.

In "Transition 89" LIA translates an excerpt from the composition into her visual algorithm-based style. The constant structural mutations, which also give the work its title, are not only a reflection of the compositional processes, but also, much like the soundtrack, a commentary on ecological, social and cultural dynamics.

For the exhibition, "If this is the Answer, what is the Question?" LIA expands the work into the exhibition space of the MAK. "Transition 89 - 2.0" reflects internal visual structures and condenses itself into a monumental, abstract, ornamental network within space.
