The exhibition at zone B presents works from four decades, taken from various fields of the artist’s oeuvre: photographs, sculptures, photographic sculptures, lumino-sculptural photograms, paintings and drawings.
Klaus Küster, who is not only a pioneer known for his photographic work and especially his experimentation with photograms, is showing works from all fields from the last four decades. In his process of cameraless photogramic exposure, the artist achieves an optical enhancement through mechanical techniques, creating spatiality in the light-sensitive layer. In addition to these “lumino-sculptural reliefs”, Küster’s show includes camera-generated works (“Kombis”), where photographic materiality forms a spatial symbiosis between real materials and the real substitutes light and shadow. At zone B, the artist has assembled a dialectical, sensual synopsis of his energetically and metaphysically charged sculptural and photographic oeuvre. The exhibition can certainly be seen as a retrospective.
An extensive and elaborate catalogue raisonné will be published in conjunction with the exhibition, a book that Klaus Küster has been working on – skilfully compiling, editing and designing – for many years.
