Exhibition Leaves,

The title of the exhibition references a light art installation recently created by Hartung | Trenz for the Art Forum‘s sculpture garden. The gallery will also be showing two other installations by the artist duo as well as photographs and videos of earlier projects.

The light installation LEAVES draws directly on the location and season of its presentation at the Schafhof at the turn of the year. Like autumn leaves, thickly packed and layered in some parts, loosely scattered in others, a carpet of text consisting of thousands of words, syllables, morphemes, acronyms, and interjections, each one no longer than three letters, covers parts of the façade of the Kunstforum, the parklike premises, and the trees and bushes, already devoid of leaves. The lush but bare vegetation of the garden evokes the remnants of a complex, previously perfect text. The viewers‘ personal, associative reading generates new texts and meanings in this walkable natural and cultural space.
