Envelopes – addressed by J.Mayer.H
J.MAYER.H is one of the few internationally known contemporary studios successfully working in the areas of architecture, art and design. This exhibition searches for the creative power behind the transdisciplinary work. How do art, design, digital space and architecture influence each other? What shapes the expression of the forms in the space? How do processes of form finding emerge in the interplay of two- and three-dimensionality?
For the first time, the HDA is showing an overview of current artistic work in the form of Jürgen Mayer H.’s drawings and collages in dialogue with built projects by the office. Detail and construction drawings of the architecture complement the exhibition installation. Like “sample books” of structures and forms they question the boundaries and similarities of the creative disciplines, each of which pursues its own discourse while increasingly speculating on the transdisciplinary potentials.
When a project starts, art and architecture are both tackling the same question: How is space organized? Initially it does not matter whether the focus is a three-dimensional urban space, a political space, a sculptural space, an installation, an object in a space, a digital space, a filmic space, a danced space, an acoustic space or the imagined space of a two-dimensional image. The interplay of distance and proximity shapes more than just the material space and the surface of an image. The choice of media, materiality, temporality, connotation and texture influence the expression of the evolving designs.
