With the single exhibition monomania the Bern-based zone contemporaine enters new territory. An artist is working on-site and realizing a work directly at the exhibition wall for the first time. “DAIMmonomania” with a size of 140 square meters is Mirko Reisser’s biggest work created in an exhibition space so far. The powerful, seemingly tangible work is determined by processes of construction and deconstruction, the abstract letter formation constitutes the key element of his three-dimensional works. The reductions of his visual motif to the four letters of his writer’s name is barely visible for the beholder, too complex and multi-layered is the spatial structure. It makes the exhibition spaces explode and openly intervenes with their aesthetic design. The distinct architectural structure is being dissolved while the works demands all attention for itself. The realization process of the work is recorded in a Making Of movie here. On another note: a new book is out now documenting the work of DAIM within the years 1989 to 2014, please check in here to learn more about this great product!
