Häusler Contemporary is pleased to open the new season with a solo exhibition of James Turrell. Selected works by Turrell document his long-time and groundbreaking artistic research on the subject of light and allow us to experience it impressively in the exclusive presentation of the new work type «The Circular Glass».
Following a series of dialogical exhibitions on the subject of light, Häusler Contemporary dedicates the second half of the year to the artist who is a pioneer, luminary and benchmark in this field: James Turrell (*1943, Los Angeles, US, lives in Flagstaff, US). Since the beginning of his career, he has been exploring the various manifestations of light and its relation to our perception of the world. With his impressive walk-in installations and projects of art in architecture he inspires people from all over the world and various cultural backgrounds.
We are very pleased to exclusively present an installation by James Turrell from the new series «The Circular Glass». Conceived for an everyday architectural environment, these spectacular works enable a visual and sensory experience of light as was previously reserved for larger installations by the artist. The unique pieces in this series are akin to the «Small Glass» series from 2016, which has attracted great attention from collectors and a broad public. The «Circular Glasses» too are individually programmed using the latest LED technology. Their physical structure relates to Turrell's «Shallow Space Constructions» from the late 1960s and early 1970s. With this new series, the artist continues his exploration of technological possibilities in connection with sensory practices, inviting viewers to a meditative experience.
