Andreas Schmid
Lichtungen, 2009

The works of art by Andreas Schmid are informed both by their locations and by the passage of time. The temporary spaces he creates allow their visitors’ external perception to segue into proprioception as they move through the rooms, discovering their transitory nature.  In interpreting spaces to unearth their latent significance, Schmid primarily uses lines – stretched between two points, glued, drawn, painted, cut out, photographed, laid on the ground or installed on the walls as light fixtures. “Basically, I will amplify whatever I perceived as the characteristic features of a space, which form the basis of my work.  My interventions will also alter empty spaces, charging them with new force and activating them.” Entering into a dialog with the positions taken by painters in the 1960s, Schmid modifies architectural, transitional rooms to become slowly changing drawings of light in space.  A computer program modulates the coloring and intensity of the columns of light in a gentle rhythm.  The drawings of light that Andreas Schmid creates in space thus open up another, separate space in which a patient observer will be able to observe the slow pulse of change – a space for visual exploration and Meditation.
