The exhibition AREA shows four artistic positions dealing with spatial concepts and a concept of the subject in space.

Carsten Höller's "motor-driven loft bed for lovers", Booster, is a work conceived for an exhibition in public space in 1995. Developed at the time in Maastricht in view of the importance of the city as a popular excursion destination for lovers of new things, it is connected with the ambivalent experience of happiness as well as with a whole series of works of art that deal with locomotion and transfer. In the rear presentation room, the visual documentation of "Promenade", a collaboration project with the landscape architects "st raum a", can also be seen.

In addition, we show works by three artists with whom the gallery has not collaborated before and who in many cases have dealt with art in architectural and urban contexts:

Tommy Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen show a work that was not exhibited in the Nordic pavilion they developed for the Venice Biennale, a Geiger counter-controlled sound spatial work consisting of four bass subwoofer boxes. Radiation in the air is transferred to bass in the room. In addition, they have developed a specified work with an LED-based spatial structure for the gallery. This also follows the logic of aleatoric energy transfer and the interest in system transformations into space.

Ann Veronica Janssens became known in Berlin through her exhibition Light Games at the Neue Nationalgalerie (2001) with a fog space that scatters the sense of orientation and a mirror installation that illustrates a constitutive element of architecture - light. Here, too, she shows two works that highlight the characteristic aspect of the transformation of perception in her work by subjecting the spatial conditions to manipulation with the aid of light and reflection: a black square plexiglass body, Corps Noir, as well as mirror strips attached to the floor edges at an angle of 45 degrees that tilt the spatial structure.

Joep van Lieshout, who has realized various collaborations with architects, including Rem Koolhaas, with the artist collective Atelier van Lieshout which he founded, presents his Maxi Capsule Luxus. All of Joep van Lieshout's life boxes offer self-sustaining, self-sufficient life systems while at the same time questioning state-controlled social conventions. Autonomy is also the goal of the free state "AVL-Ville" founded by the group of artists in the port of Rotterdam.
