hans kotter: home sweet homegallery klaus benden, germanyon now through january 13th, 2012

 

internationally renowned german artist hans kotter presents his latest exhibition ‘home sweet home’ at gallery klaus benden in köln, germany.kotter is well-known for his for his dexterity in harnessing the atmospheric and manipulative power of light – this latest exposition no exception. ‘almost’ strays from the familial chaotic yarn-like lighting pieces by kotter, with this new iteration focusing on the theme of a house – a home. the artwork is defined by a fragile glass structure perched on a trailer, the interior of the house complicated by the reflection of mirrors, glass and translucency. kotter uses the language and play of light to manufacture dizzying installations – articulating notions of memory, promises and wishes.the remainder of the pieces are more reminiscent of his earlier works – neon twists and illuminated turns, captivating the mind’s eye. the light-boxes of complex refracted patterns seem to simulate an entrance to another dimension, manufacturing a surreal atmosphere and candidly toying with human perception.
