Zach LiebermanStudies in color, light and geometry (with collections)
- Presented by
- Lisson Gallery
Light assumes a profound presence within contemporary art, shaping Zach Lieberman’s artistic practice. In this exhibition, Lieberman reflects on light as a creative medium, drawing particular inspiration from the legacy of Gottfried Jäger. The aim is to explore the relationship between his work and the art of the past, situating his new series within the wider discourse of media art.nnVerse is proud to present Zach Lieberman's new body of work, featuring video works, print works, and exclusive in-person-only NFT mints. The artist will be present in London, and visitors are invited to join workshops led by the artist during the exhibition week, offering an opportunity to engage directly with the creative process.
The Lichtrequisit series pays tribute to some of the most groundbreaking works in digital art, with its roots tracing back to Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Moholy-Nagy, an artist, designer, and educator, who was renowned for his innovative use of light, space, and motion, believed that technology could advance society and art. He challenged conventional forms of expression by using new media to create a new sensory experience that was both beautiful and functional. His Das Lichtrequisit (Light-Space Modulator) is a testament to the transformative power of technology and its potential to democratize culture.nnAs digital and generative art continued to evolve, Gottfried Jäger experimented later on with computer-generated videos that animate geometric Moholy-Nagy paintings from the 1920s. Jäger's work in generative photography draws from the aesthetics of geometric abstraction, including movements such as constructivism, concrete art, neoplasticism, and op art. He finds ways to generate imagery from photo-based processes and systems, without reference to pre-existing reality. This solo exhibition explores the evolution of these art forms, from Moholy-Nagy's Lichtrequisit to Jäger's generative photography and video animations through a unique in-person experience in London.
