Netzwerk / Luminale 2020

For the Luminale, Cologne artist Ulrich Wagner takes up the idea of exposure and layering in a calm, minimalist work. For the church, he developed a picture panel approximately 6 x 3m made of pigmented paper pulp, which is suspended from the gallery and illuminated with ultraviolet light. It shows – in relief-like layers – the floor plan of the church, overlaid and underlaid with other architectural structures. These all refer to the history and urban structures of Frankfurt, thus interweaving the church closely with the city’s history.

In his work, Wagner combines ordinary and fluorescent daylight pigments, so that, depending on the lighting, strong variances in the effect of the work arise and different layers come to the fore.
