What Mary didn’t Know, Leipzig, 2016



Invited by friend Jeff Weber to make an exhibition in-situ in Leipzig in the frame of his exhibition program “Kunsthalle Leipzig”, I produced temporary new works there that were loosing their colors because the exhibition spaces were illuminated by low-pressure sodium lamps – as in many O. Eliasson’s installation, but differently.

Probably the most spectacular piece: Magic Carpet (2016, inkjet print on canvas, RGB LED and low-pressure sodium lamp), was simply a color print lying on the floor, partially illuminated by a white RGB LED lamp. The very bright colors of the print were only visible under the white light, the rest of the Carpet remained grey.

An edition of prints that are visually equivalent under low-pressure sodium light has been crafted using an inkjet printer and a ballpen-plotter for the occasion: Sox equivalents, 2016
