Heinz Kasper is a light painter, a light draughtsman, and a light
designer. For him, colour is light and light is form. Forms evolve from
shadows, and gain their contour from light; light delineates the shapes,
which transform like light itself as the day moves into night. On
travels from Europe to Africa, from India to Japan, he has explored the
most varied manifestations of light, and experimented with light
environments and designs.
With this in mind, it is only logical that Heinz Kasper does not limit
himself only to the institution of art during his research trips.
Alongside his light designs for museums, and his participation in
international light festivals, he also mounts interior and exterior
architectural projects as well as temporary exhibitions and other
projects related to all genres of the pictorial arts. Moreover, time and
again he creates and stages illuminated “moving pictures” in which
nature itself is brought to speak. In the end, everything is light.
During the residency in NES Heinz Kasper will document and observe the
„Blue Hour” and work on the series of Silhouettes “Praise of the
Shadow”. Other topics: elaboration of the concept „Aeon Oz” a film,
a performance a transformation an experience about movement, light and
sound through a spiritual and cultural India.
