Stefan à Wengen »INSTANT PANOPTIKUM«

ZERO FOLD, Cologne

Stefan à Wengen »INSTANT PANOPTIKUM«

Vernissage: 6 December 2019, 7pm

7 December 2019 – 11 January 2020
 

Why do certain images imprint themselves and keep us interested? In his INSTANT PANOPTIKUM, Stefan à Wengen uses the vitrine-like spatiality of ZERO FOLD for a representative section of his œuvre, quasi "en miniature", and provides the viewer with an immediate overview not only of his own work, but supposedly of the "whole world" – in reminiscence of a traditional chamber of curiosities that gathers natural and cultural set pieces from all continents.

 

In addition to two sculptural "Obstacles" and a colored canvas, the Swiss artist shows a larger selection of his small-format ongoing series "Detected Dictionary", which he has been creating since 2014 in an almost daily ritual sitting at the studio table.
