Raum (Nein, Nicht, Nur) [Space]
Installation, variable dimensions.
Materials: brown tape
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0306).
‘poetry of the sparse’ / ‘Raum’ is the brown tape-installation in which Bernd Lohaus gave a literal view on physical distance. Through strong materiality and the combination with the (possibility of) language, Bernd Lohaus creates a physically experienced space which, as a participant of the work, you can’t encounter. In the tradition of the anthroposophists this work reveals an real atmosphere instead of a mythical universe. This typical (Belgian/European?) relation between artist and public contradicts to the American tradition, where the artist creates in function of ‘the (abstract) viewer’ or ‘the collector’.
