Light – both as a medium and as a motif – forms the basis of Brigitte Kowanz’s wall works, objects and installations.
This catalogue offers an exciting cross section through the works of the early 1980s to recent works dealing with language and coding systems, as well as the newest mirror pieces and the highlight of the exhibition in the MUMOK – a spectacular room of mirrors, a grand backdrop in which the interactions between light, language and mirror culminated in an endlessly multifaceted permeation of reality and fiction.
These works are represented by numerous pictures in the catalogue as well as two works in the public space – a mathematically progressive light-marking on the outside of the MUMOK building, and a dynamically illuminated linguistic image on the UNIQA Tower.
Published to accompany the exhibition at MUMOK, Vienna, 25 June – 3 October 2010.
