Glass artist Simon Berger stages the space completely freely according to his ideas and creates new spatial installations for the first time from his further developed experiments, in which the visitors integrate themselves and interact with the material glass. For example, walkable glass plates are installed, through their own weight the overall work planned by the artist is activated by breaking the glass floor. In addition, mirror shards and light incidence will create images on the walls, in keeping with his preoccupation with reflection and transparency.
The installation will be accompanied by a supporting room acoustics/lighting concept and will be in a constant state of flux throughout the exhibition period. Through the artist's continued involvement in the overall installation, new works, sculptures and spatial experiences are constantly being created.
During the exhibition period, individual public and also exclusive events on the theme of "glass" will take place within the installation in combination with culinary/performance events. These accompanying programs will be communicated separately in each case.
"Human faces have always fascinated me. On glass, these motifs come into their own particularly well and magically attract visitors. It's a discovery from abstract obfuscation to figurative perception."
Simon Berger was born on April 9, 1976, grew up in Herzogenbuchsee (Switzerland). Today he lives and works in his own studio in Niederönz.
