Summary:
"In the early 1960s, US artist Dan Flavin (1933-1996) began using commercially available fluorescent tubes in standard sizes and colours to create an unmistakable œuvre. Precision and careful calculation are bound together with a sensual aura. By choosing the tubes as the material for his works, Flavin signalised the increasing proximity of art with everyday life and the consumer world. The ways in which they are

Abstract:

"In the early 1960s, US artist Dan Flavin (1933-1996) began using commercially available fluorescent tubes in standard sizes and colours to create an unmistakable œuvre. Precision and careful calculation are bound together with a sensual aura. By choosing the tubes as the material for his works, Flavin signalised the increasing proximity of art with everyday life and the consumer world. The ways in which they are presented are derived from principles of minimalist sobriety."

Die Verwandlung von Farbe in Licht zählt zu den großen Themen der Malerei. Dan Flavin (1933-1996) nutzte Licht als Farbe und Werkstoff. Mittels profaner Leuchtstoffröhren entwickelte er eine radikal neue Kunstform, die das 'Bild' aus seinem Rahmen befreite und zum erhellenden Farbobjekt von raumgreifender Erscheinung machte. Die Erweiterung des Wandbildes zur Lichtinstallation korrespondiert mit der Befreiung des Lichts aus seiner spirituellen Bedeutungstradition. Flavins Arbeiten erinnern an die Leuchtreklamen des städtischen Nachtlebens oder an triviale Zimmerlampen. Der Betrachter findet sich in ein farbenprächtiges Lichtspiel eingebunden, das zur leibhaftigen Erfahrung einer entgrenzten Kunst wird. Exhibition: MUMOK. Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, Austria (13.10.2012-3.2.2013) / Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland (2.-6.2013).
