SUSANNE ROTTENBACHER

MON *BERLIN EDITION 2019

The art of Susanne Rottenbacher is an interplay of light, space, movement and form. The artist (born 1969, Göttingen, Germany) studied stage design between 1988-1991 at Columbia University in New York (USA). This was followed by a master’s degree in “Light” at the Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning in London (England).

After several years as a stage designer at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Rottenbacher began to work as a freelance lighting designer.

Her award-winning lighting sculptures can be found in both: in urban space and in the interplay with architectural elements in interiors.

DISASSEMBLY

The work Disassembly, 2017, presents a frozen light explosion of red, blue, green, yellow and pink repealing the laws of space and time.

A spiral of light, color and shapes that expands up, down and sideways in all directions at the same time. The power of this eruption is transferred from the artwork to the environment. The work liberates itself from the material and spatial limitation characteristic of sculptures. It opens the door to a new dimension, which is for a blink of an eye free from the constraint of time and manifests itself in a form.

Something invisible becomes visible and tangible.
