Artist Birgit Zinner uses her practice to investigate spatial perception in itself. Based on a conceptually developed classification system for specific forms, colours and layers, Zinner organises complex image-space arrangements that consist of overlapping, monochrome painted, static or rotating panels. Space is not defined as something pre-existing, the viewer experiences it step by step, as he slowly works his way through the many different spatial segments – space is defined as something that is ever-changing, as a medium that mutates through time and movement.
With their insistance to the spatial-material dimension, Zinners pieces comment on the intensified dissolution of the tangible in the age of the computer- or TV-screen. They question the loss of complexity of these two-dimensional modes of representation.
