HEINZ MACK: LIGHT SHADOW
May 16 – September 20, 2015
The major summer exhibition 2015 shows the reliefs of Heinz Mack (born in 1931), which were central to his plastic-sculptural work. In 1957/58, along with Otto Piene, Mack founded the group ZERO, which was joined shortly afterward by Günther Uecker. He took part in documenta on numerous occasions, and represented Germany at the Venice Biennale in 1970. The central artistic motif of his diverse oeuvre is the portrayal of light in its various manifestations.
It is through his non-objective sculptures and, especially, his reliefs, that Heinz Mack finds his way to his own specific light design. Not only does he work with the lively interplay of light and shade, he also makes use of different, mainly glossy materials to explore the effects of light.
