BeschreibungLight and darkness transform city buildings into surreal structures: an ordinary gray concrete building in plain daylight changes at night into a mysterious monolith or, under a blue-tinted lens, into an ethereal edifice. Swedish artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff harnessed these transformative powers of light to create a powerful spectacle that presents Chicago architecture from a wholly original perspective in this collection of striking photographs. "Red Empty (Chicago 2003)" is the latest in a series of urban-centered works spanning from Bangkok to Santa Fe in which von Hausswolff set 1000-watt red spotlights against the architecture of run-down, abandoned buildings to generate spectral real-world monochromes. His images explore intermediate realms through these otherworldly images--worlds traced by psychic residue that rewrite the history of particular sites." Red Empty" is a compelling visual work that transforms Chicago architecture into sculptures of light, shadow, and stone.
PortraitCarl Michael von Hausswolff is a composer, artist, and curator based in Stockholm, Sweden. His work has been featured at numerous exhibitions including the Documenta X in Kassel, the Johannesburg Biennial, the Venice Biennale, and the Portikus in Frankfurt.
Pressestimmen"This book is a collection of red monochronme prints of empty buildings, transformed by their color bath into structures more hypnotic and mysterious than their reality would ever dare hint. Nice."--Arthur Magazine
