Brigitte Kowanz: Lost under the Surface

Museum Haus Konstruktiv is honoring Brigitte Kowanz with a comprehensive retrospective

Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Selnaustrasse 25, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland

This solo exhibition conveys how, since the 1980s, Austrian artist Brigitte Kowanz has been making it possible to experience the medium of light as both a stand-alone phenomenon and an information carrier. “Lost under the Surface” is the title of a small-format mirror piece that gives the name to the exhibition.

Alongside early works, which thematize processes of illumination in particular, numerous works from the subsequent years are presented, in which neon loops for instance, in the form of characters and codes, formulate messages about culture theory and socio-political matters. The code used most frequently in Kowanz’s artistic practice is Morse code. Kowanz has utilized this in recent years, for instance, in reference to key events in the history of technology
