Parallel Perspectives: Light Art Installations by Luftwerk
‘Parallel Perspectives’ is an incredible site-specific exhibition at the McCormick House, the Elmhurst Art Museum’s contemporary art center and historic house designed by Mies van der Rohe.
The exhibition presents vibrant installations by artistic duo Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, aka Luftwerk.
“Luftwerk explores light, color, and perception in immersive, experience-based installations. Focused on the context of a site for each project, Luftwerk applies their own interpretive layer, integrating the physical structure, historical context, and embedded information into each piece. Since founding in 2007, Luftwerk has amassed a significant body of work ranging from site-specific installations to experimental projects that interpret data.
Light and color are primary elements in work by Luftwerk. Their interest lies in the power of light as a crucial element to sight, exploring its dynamic relationship with the perception of color. Using various modalities—projecting videos, casting shadows, creating custom sculpture—they integrate light into every project to explore its ephemeral and shifting nature.”Art Posted on June 21, 2019
