Luftwerk Opens New Installation at the Mattress Factory Contemporary Art Museum
Mattress Factory is excited to announce a new installation by Luftwerk as part of Factory Installed 2021 opening on Friday, March 12, 2021.
The Mattress Factory artist-in-residence program is committed to supporting diverse artists in their bold thought and expression as they create original, room-sized art that helps us to feel, connect and react. Luftwerk, the artistic duo of Munich-born Petra Bachmaier and NYC-native Sean Gallero, explores light, color, and perception in immersive, experience-based installations. Luftwerk applies their own interpretive layer to the sites in which they work, integrating the physical structure, historical context, and embedded information into each piece.
From March 12, 2021 - November 1, 2021, Luftwerk's installation "Open Square" will be open to the public at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, PA. "Open Square" reflects on the habitat that defines everyday experience. Light and dark. Cold and warm. The cyclical flow of the installation is a contemplation of the physical experiences of interior space and how perception can shift through color, light and sound.
