Via Lewandowsky

Berlin-based artist Via Lewandowsky (b. 1963) is to design a dedicated production for Kunsthalle zu Kiel. In scenic configurations, Hokuspokus will present works that investigate misunderstandings and absurdities surrounding belief, superstition, fetish, aura, knowledge, and reason. At all times guided by his scientific interest, too, Lewandowsky will focus on what is inexplicable and extrasensory, and will seek, using deceptively realistic-looking effects, to overcome the boundaries of what can be depicted. An awakening cassette recorder, emitting colored fog as the beholder approaches, magical displacements, and poetic traces of a coincidence will be just as much parts of the exhibition as culturalspiritualist speculations, on number 42, for example. In his works, Lewandowsky confronts the processual, confers sense on nonsense, detaches things from their actual function and puts them to new use. In an extremely cryptic, but also humorous way, he inquires after the conditions of our perception.
