Overview

Light Installation with 740 blue LEDs
95 x 70 x 16 ft / 29.1 x 21.3 x 4.8 m (L x W x H)
State Gallery of Lower Austria, Krems
Exhibition “Architecture Pure”
March 1 – April 7, 2019

Goals

The installation connects the new State Gallery of Lower Austria and the Kunsthalle Krems in a vast space below ground. The individual lights are arranged in a strict square grid on a slanted plane and delineate the border between emptiness and structure. The visitors immerse themselves into the room to become part of the work.

Process

The communication between the artist's studio team, the manufacturers, and the local exhibition team was mostly through engineering drawings and online conference calls. The local exhibition team then installed the work under the supervision of the artist.
