" ___" Temporarily invisible

The exhibition will present young artists who depict absence and ephemerality in their art. Their works direct the viewer’s gaze to blank spaces and visualize the non-existent, impalpable and invisible.

Matthias Meyer’s film The Black Museum affords us a look behind the scenes at the Louvre. The paintings in the museum have been blackened out in the film. They thus become projection surfaces for the viewer’s imagination and, by concealing what constitutes their core value they heighten their claim to autonomy. In a similar manner Alicja Kwade’s blackened clock objects seem to deny us the opportunity to contemplate the passing of time. Ultimately, however, their invisibility increases our perception of time. The Transport Crates for Shadows by Wolfgang Plöger avail themselves of the formal language of Minimal Art. They materialize the incidence of light and the shadows cast by objects, thus recording an instant for eternity
