In “Illusion #2 - Moving Space”, digital landscapes, luminous tone threads, kinetic sculptures, geometric UV light curtains and flashes of light are transforming the Kunstkraftwerk into an artistic, scientific laboratory for self-awareness.
Even more intense than “Illusion - Nothing is as it seems”, which was rather designed to trick the senses, the new exhibition aims at exploring the borders and contradictions of our traditional habits of perception.
“It places the volatility of our mind and human perception at the forefront and, with the help of new experiences and perceptions, wants to give us the possibility to see ourselves and the world around us in a new light and with newly-acquired sensitivity”, explains curator Lavinia D. Freitas.
With an amazingly small, real space, through the special arrangement of mirrors, the star universcope from Leipzig artist Holger Schultze creates an endless spatial effect – a universe. The Wisp Kollektiv, also from Leipzig, creates the illusion of an endless digital landscape by using 360° projection in a mirrored room. The visitors are invited to enter this virtual world and change it through gestures and body movements.
The Kunstkraftwerk’s creators’ demand to move the close connection between art and science to the forefront will be clearly seen in this exhibition as well. The works shown are based on mathematical principles, use the laws of physics or were developed in cooperation with scientists.
