Organizing Institution: Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana
Venue: Museo Correr, Piazza San Marco 52
In an extensive solo show the ZERO founder and kinetic artist Heinz Mack, who represented Germany at the 35th International Art Exhibition in 1970, presents an impressive cross-section of his work in one of Venice’s most iconic venues. In the form of an imposing spatial installation, Mack’s monumental paintings and light steles meet there with masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese. Through the light-mirroring steles, the atmospheric venue with its Renaissance paintings is taken up and reflected. Light, which plays the central role in Mack’s oeuvre and in this exhibition, also determines his contemplative colour field paintings that transcend the historic space into a temporary place of meditation.
