The perception of a complex interaction of light and materia l is one of the principal themes in the artistic work of Adolf Luther (1912 -1990). In the 1960s he experimented intensely with reflecting glass and cr eated installations and objects\, which came close to approaching his conce pt of visualising light as an autonomous and non-material medium.

O n the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the ZERO-artist 401contemporary is delighted to exhibit the spectacular environment „The Focus Room“ (1968) together with Adolf Luther’s famous Materiebilder (dark matter piec es)\, Hohlspiegelobjekten (kinetic concave mirror objects) and his < i>Lichtschleusen (light traps). The installation is based on a kinetic system of rotating concave mirrors\, mounted on the floor. Illuminated by s potlights a dancing ballet of light cones of immaterial form arises: „It cr eates an energetic sculpture. It is an ethereal figure of alterability and transience.“ (Adolf Luther)
