Kunstverein Freiburg, English Version

 

Hans-Christian Lotz
26 January – 11 March 2018

Lotz, HCL © Hans-Christian LotzThe work of Hans-Christian Lotz addresses the supposed norms of everyday life. For all the familiarity of its elements and milieus – current technologies, information systems or generic objects – his installations are characterised by a calculated inaccessibility.

Lotz’s exhibition in Kunstverein Freiburg sketches the skeleton of a barren world of glass facades, fractals, ideologies and hallucinating source codes. At the centre of this is a video installation with an interactive mechanism, which is conversely employed to create an effect of concealment. Methods of encryption and abstraction become part of a reflexion on the specifically historical practice of exhibiting, and the possibility of its non-anthropocentric future. Consequently, the distance between the exhibited and the potential addressee is extended so far that the human observer is completely removed from this relationship.

An edition was released for the exhibition.
