Über das Werk

Adolf Luther fashioned numerous wall objects from concave-shaped mirrors. This semi-transparent single lens admits a view through to the mirror lying beyond it, whilst at the same reflecting back a beam of light of the surrounding environment. The interpenetrating reflections from the mirror and the lens create an optical confusion within the viewer, conjuring the spectre of a spherical, magical, enigmatic light-air-space. With the real space appearing to dissolve, the observer also perceives himself as a light-filled spherical being; and confronted by the sight of his own - distorted - reflections, he himself is integrated into the art work.
The kaleidoscopic interplay of light and reflections incites a compelling fascination. All of Adolf Luther's other, ostensibly similar, works also abound in new and yet-to-be discovered intriguing variants and light phenomena.
(Eva Müller-Remmert)
