Robert Irwin “Light and Space (Kraftwerk Berlin)”

Robert Irwin is currently presenting a solo exhibition at the Sprüth Magers Berlin outpost. To coincide with the event, the renowned American artist was commissioned to create an in situ installation at Kraftwerk Berlin, titled Space and Light.

In the latest project, the former German power station turned techno club is lit by a wall of fluorescent tubes that evoke a rhythmic but indecipherable pattern. Measuring approximately 52 x 52 feet, Space and Light was commissioned by the foundation for art, Light Art Space (LAS) and is Irwin’s largest European work to date.

A pioneer of the Light and Space art movement that emerged in Southern California in the 1960s, Irwin investigates our experiential relationships with the built environment. Space and Light (Kraftwerk Berlin) is visible until January 29.

Elsewhere in art, Vincent Leroy distorts the Icelandic landscape into Anamorphosis.
