Collectors Agenda is bringing together Brigitte Kowanz and Christoph Weber in one exhibition for the first time. The encounter is based on the observation that both use a minimalist mode of expression that is strongly conceived in terms of materiality. In this dialogue, what separates the two positions becomes illuminating. Weber’s limited, clearly defined forms meet Kowanz’s oscillating lines, whose delimited “material” light expands in space and makes the surfaces of the sculptures with their cracks and smoothness perceptible in the first place. The “divided space” therefore does not allude to a division of space in the sense of separation, but is to be understood more as “shared space”. However, the artists do not only think of the measurable space, but beyond they allow a space of ideas to emerge. Anyone looking into Brigitte Kowanz’s mirrored cubes will gaze into infinity and find themselves confronted with a word. Those who walk around Christoph Weber’s sculptures will find possible associations through their haptic qualities, material properties and form solutions.
