This exhibition is dedicated to Austrian artist Peter Kogler and presents a series of his recent works. He is a very prominent name on the international art scene for the past 30 years. Kogler has developed art at the intersection of different disciplines and media through performance, video, film, painting, sculpture and architecture. Since 1984 he has used computer technology in his art.

The exhibition displays a monumental curtain, an emblematic item in Kogler's work. Designed on it is a printed abstract motif of red entangled lines. The curtain is used as a large painting in elongated format that cannot be encompassed at a glance, which encourages us to closer observation and movement.

Both the sound and the moving images create a filmic atmosphere, so that we become aware of all the influences and historical reminiscences like the ones from Fritz Lang films or the legendary Blade Runner, which Kogler often mentions in his interviews. The author of sound as a constituent part of the installation is Franz Pomassl, Austrian artist, theorist, and curator, Peter Kogler's collaborator for several years.

The next stage of the exhibition reminds us the atmosphere and works recorded in Kogler's Los Angeles studio, at the time when they were marked by strong influence of American art, especially minimalism and pop-art. His art is never foreseeable, working with a computer, Kogler's develops visual structures in two or three dimensional form, using in his visual scope the everyday object's repertoire.

Finally in the last room, you can discover the expansion of images-drawings with Kogler's tube motif, black print on white ground.
