• Uta Weber: Blow - Flow - Glow

    Exhibition in the MQ Art Box

    Opening: Thu, Mar 30, 19:00
    Venue: MQ Art Box
    Admission free

    In times where there is hardly a place in which to linger for a while in urban spaces that is not plastered with advertisements and monitors and where every petrol station looks like an epigonic light installation by Dan Flavin at night, the aesthetic fight for attention in public spaces is becoming more difficult. Uta Weber opts for the reverse path of interaction: she quotes shapes from product design and adapts the vocabulary of advertising in order to create spaces of experience that are free of messages and values.

    In her installation “Blow – Flow – Glow” she has affixed translucent foil on the MQ Art Box, and its circular shapes literally appear to be blowing, flowing and glowing. The opaque covering of the spatial body awakens the viewer’s curiosity about this glass “art cuboid” and electric light transforms the architecture into a colourfully luminous light sculpture. What distinguishes Uta Weber’s work is the lightness alluded to in the title: simplicity of form, clarity of colour, precision of the concept, irony of allusion and an unruffled approach to art theory discourses.
