Mischa Kuball: FlashPlanet2005

2 September–8 October 2005

Catalogue Essay by Ihor Holubizky


Dusseldorf artist Mischa Kuball explores urban structures, the fabrics of buildings and cities. His works often use projected light. In one installation he slide-projects views of Brisbane and Dusseldorf onto paper lampshades within which strobe lights disruptively flash. In City through Glass he films a trip through Brisbane through the bottom of a drinking glass, then projects the results twice, side by side, creating a doubled, drunk, binocular view of the city. Show in a gallery with windows onto the street, the projection is barely visible by day; at night it is spectacular.
