Daniel Buren at Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, Germany

From 18 March to 10 June 2018, the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz will be presenting for the first time worldwide a new series of works by the site-specific French artist Daniel Buren (*1938, Boulogne-Billancourt, Parisian Banlieue). His most recent work Quand le textile s’éclaire: fibres optiques tissées. Travaux situés 2013–2014 (When the fabric brightens: Woven glass fibres. Works »in loco« 2013–2014) immerses two museum rooms in multicoloured, multifaceted light. A field of tension is created between the exhibited and the exhibition space, as the work can be perceived equally as textile art with geometric decoration, as a wall curtain and as room lighting.
