    Angela Bulloch

    Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus
    Luisenstraße 33
    July 25 - May 18

    Curated by Matthias Mühling

    The paradox of Angela Bulloch's art is that while her works are difficult to apprehend perceptually, they depend on heightened sensory responses for their affective power. Her show at the Kunstbau, titled “The Space that Time Forgot,” consists of five new pieces, among them a projection of images of the earth onto a three-dimensional object; a computer-controlled LED installation mimicking a starry night sky; and an assemblage of structures evocative of modernist architecture but of indeterminate function. The works will respond to and influence one another both visually and acoustically, creating, in effect, a single, room-size installation. The exhibition is accompanies by a acatalogue that includes essays by curator Matthias Mühling and critic Diedrich Diederichsen.
