Signature Details: Much of Kotter's oeuvre, including his Chromatic Plants series, is based upon the use of a prism, photographing the diffraction of light through it. With polished stainless steel with color-changing LEDs, Kotter's works at the intersection of photography, design, and technology, creating sculptures and installations that give physical form to light. Constantly exploring new materials and techniques, Kotter has a body of work that ranges from lightboxes of painting-like macro photography to optical-illusion-like LED sculptures to room-sized installations that envelop visitors in emotive and visually stimulating washes of color.

For the MAKK exhibition, Hans Kotter specially created Rise and Fall, an installation suspended in space. The monochrome LED lights are programmed in such a way that the individual elements of this light sculpture seem to hover in space and – as the name already indicates – seem to rise and fall.
Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
Hans Kotter’s work is an exquisite commentary on the way that light interacts with the environment. It references the minimalist neon sculpture of the 1960s and 1970s by artists such as Dan Flavin, and can be seen as part of the canon of exciting “light” work by contemporary artists such as Olafur Eliasson and James Turrell. Kotter’s creations oscillate between technical perfection, naturalness, artificiality and painterly appearance, creating works of art that cannot be comfortably categorized. His light-based sculptures reflect the mutability of light due to the steady change of colors as one flows into the next, as well as a strong interest on the part of Kotter in engaging his audience. This is achieved primarily through the interactive quality of his work – the appearance of each is customizable according to viewer preference. Much of Kotter’s oeuvre, including his Chromatic Plants series, is based upon the use of a prism, photographing the diffraction of light through it. The results are beautiful, unique images that seem to be amorphous forms of pure color. These images are further integrated into his sculptural work as slides composed of intricate and unique series of color segments. Throughout his oeuvre, Hans Kotter consistently manipulates light and color to invariably benefit and transform the environments that the works inhabit. Hans Kotter was born in Muhldorf am Inn, Germany in 1966. His work has been exhibited widely throughout Europe and the United States. Highlights include participation in exhibitions at Villa Datris (L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France), KineticaMuseum (London), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Zagreb). His work is in collections including the Targetti Light Art Collection (La Sfacciata, Italy), Museum Ritter (Waldenbuch, Germany), and Kinetica Museum (London).He currently lives and works in Berlin.
