ZURICH.- Häusler Contemporary has announced the «Summer – Insert» with Brigitte Kowanz and Alejandra Seeber. For the first time in Switzerland, a presentation of selected neon works by Brigitte Kowanz from the «Discs» series as well as multifaceted paintings by Alejandra Seeber, which are situated between figuration and abstraction is being made.

With her genuine light works, Brigitte Kowanz (1957 - 2022) was one of the most important international artists in this field. She made light visible as an independent phenomenon that not only illuminates but, like language and writing, also carries information and generates meaning. It is no coincidence that since the late 1980s the artist has combined light with language to create memorable pictorial formulas. Both means of expression served Kowanz as medium, motif and metaphor to visualise the complex relationship between seeing and understanding, perceiving and recognising.

With a total of three works from 2015, we are showing the important series of «Discs». The works consist of circular neon tubes that reproduce words in Morse code through darkened sections on the glass. The imprinted code is always the title of the respective work. Attached to polished stainless steel discs that form a matt mirror for the neon light, the factual text statement becomes an optical illusionistic relief that illuminates its surrounding space like a sun.
