The Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden presents an exhibition of works by James Turrell until 28th October 2018. For over three decades, Turrell has used light and indeterminate space — not objects, nor images — to extend and enhance perception. Turrell’s inspiration draws from astronomy, physics, architecture and theology.
The artist once remarked, “I am really interested in the qualities of one space sensing another. It is like looking at someone looking. Objectivity is gained by being once removed. As you plumb a space with vision, it is possible to ‘see yourself see’. This seeing, this plumbing, imbues space with consciousness.”
Turrell’s blue-colored Aural installation is also currently on view at the Jewish Museum in Berlin (until 30th September 2019).
