The work »Chiaroscuro« departs from the juxtaposition of bright and dark areas in Baroque painting and attempts an investigation of the categorization of our world into bright and dark, black and white, good and evil, poor and rich, beautiful and ugly etc. In doing so, ways of perception and aesthetical and moral categories are being challenged. Our contemporary reality is subjected to a contrasty play of over- and underexposures. Using relicts of everyday functional spaces – such as bright aseptic hospital corridors and gloomy pedestrian underpasses – the installation »Chiaroscuro« suggests a spectrum of connections between abstract ordering systems and tangible material reality, between patterns of thinking and the architectural and perceptual construction of space.
