Interpretation of Space presents four very different interpretations of space in dialogue with each other and with the gallery space. Here space has significance in itself – but also space as imagination. Space in the interplay between illusion and reality.

Gerhard Froemel shapes purist spatial illusions out of lines and squares with fascinating precision and subtle wit. Only a few folds are sufficient to stage impossible optical spaces out of painted aluminum sheets. Aesthetic irritations that change depending on the point of view.

The spaces reminding of folded draperies are the anarchistic results of his research. University lecturer Duks Koschitz, architect and geometrician, folds shapes that are just not calculable with formulas. His experiments form themselves into beautifully shaped, extraordinary art objects made of specially resistant cellulose.

The painter Alex Klein has devoted himself to colour field painting. Mysterious shadow plays suggest architectural situations, which he achieves by means of the devoted treatment of his surfaces, which are kept tone-in-tone. Alex Klein paints and grinds his painting surfaces in many layers until they produce mysterious-seeming, peculiarly delicate colour harmonies.

With his collages, Jesse Willems illustrates how circles, squares and triangles can be composed in an idiosyncratically different way. His material is old paper, which he layers together and on top of each other. Jesse Willems also astounds with the variety of forms within his geometric corset. His abstract pictorial compositions unfold in the two-dimensional, in a mystery of familiar sensuality and new timelessness.
