ZEITFENSTER UND -MÖBEL
The twins, Ulrich and Roland Köhler, use various materials, beginning with the collage as a picture, they move on to painting and up to installations. This way Ulrich and Roland sound out the connection between time reference and timelessness. For this purpose they do not only preserve industrial and everyday objects, such as objects dating back to the socialist era as a form of recollection, but put absurd inventions into practice, too.
Objects and machines are being created, which send the observer on a journey into the future. Here, the future reflects the past and ends up in the present.
Worlds collide; conflicts and galaxies arise and create tension. Subtly the matter of time is being approached; encrypted signs and codes create substances, which are hidden behind the curtain and which become apparent and present in the process of observing them.
