> DESCRIPTION

Amidst a world saturated with a relentless stream of images and stimuli, moments of visual quiet can take on unexpected power. InVisible: Art at the Edge of Perception features works by artists who explore the line between visibility and invisibility and, in so doing, invite viewers to participate in a deeper act of looking.

The exhibition examines the demands and subtleties of the viewing experience and includes works that test the limits of perception. Drawing attention to what is often unnoticed at first glance, many of the works heighten our awareness of inconspicuous details of the artists’ materials or those of mundane objects. Others focus on the spaces in our surroundings that are often overlooked. Some of the works, pushed to the edge of legibility, disappear into the gallery space itself and diminish the distinction between medium and ground. Several artists manipulate ephemeral phenomena, harnessing the potential of light and shadow, while still others use strategies of erasure and find the “something” in what might be otherwise described as “nothing.”

InVisible brings together a small selection of international artists working in a variety of mediums, and features Uta Barth, Christian Capurro, Joanne Lefrak, Janet Passehl, Jaime Pitarch, and Karin Sander.
