FROM THE FUTURE
Artist: Esther Stocker
Curator: Zuzana Pacáková
Duration: September 30th – November 20th 2016
Exhibition space: Kunsthalle LAB
Esther Stocker (*1974) focuses on spatial abstraction and architecture that pulls viewers into a different dimension. Black-and-white geometrical landscapes are created through multiplication of simple shapes and forms, horizontal as well as vertical lines. She creates rhythmical patterns that underline the unyielding character of her works. Repetition of basic elements, shifting of the horizon and playing with the perspective creates the depth as well as volume of the space.
Her installations represent a direct continuation of abstract paintings and solitaire sculptures that she develops and decomposes within the space and consequently also applies in architecture as well as the public space. She highlights playfulness, and stimulates the viewer to complement the dynamics and determine the depth of the installation itself by his or her own presence or movement. Thus she defines the „finite“ of the given space.
„I try to find things I was not looking for and there is solid truth in geometry. My paintings and installations focus on reduced geometrical structures and their ability to change. In this context I am interested in the contrasting poles of change: that it can lead to either development or collapse“, the artist explains her work.
