“You never see the artists’ works to the end. Their actual reality unfolds before our eyes in an endless concatenation of transitory states. They are set in motion by the arrangement in space and the forms of light.”

Artur Elmer, Kunstverein Aalen

An installation by light artist Laurenz Theinert now awakens – visible from the outside – the still closed rooms from their enforced corona sleep. Under the title ‘The Awakening’, the light surfaces, which are precisely related to the architecture of the rooms, start to move, build up and then break down again – and thus play in a new way with the intrinsic quality of the spaces. An examination of brightness and darkness, becoming and passing – and of the viewer’s perception.
