VIENNA.- The Brigitte Kowanz retrospective
is a
part of a series of exhibitions that the MUMOK is putting on dealing
with
internationally successful Austrian artists. With the consistent
depiction of
light and language Kowanz’s work is an exception, in both a local and
international context. This is the first time that her varied and
complex oeuvre
from 1984 up to the present has been honoured to this extent with a
presentation
of representative wall pieces, installations, and interventions in
architectonic
space. The essential elements of her current creative work are
compressed into
an intensive light-space experience in a 450 m² ‘mirrored hall’. During
the
exhibition encounters with Kowanz’s work in public space have been made
possible
by two light projects – one on the façade of the MUMOK and one on the
Uniqa
Tower. On view through 3 October.
