“flat – sculptural – virtual
light – motion – time”
Hans Kupelwieser designed two rotating platforms as the basis for his installation at the MQ ART BOX exhibition. Through the motion, a multitude of constellations becomes visible to visitors. A range of objects such as photograms, sculptures, production remains and waste are mounted onto the platforms.

The appearance changes constantly through the rotation and is amped up to profusion with spotlights, shadows, camera and projections. Due to the motion, the configuration is distorted, finds a different form and is seemingly disembodied. The materiality of the objects is suspended, transformed into other states of matter, or and presented in this a plethora of aspects.
