LHC by Gerhard Mayer

About the project:

Gerhard Mayer creates site specific wall drawings of Indian ink on white walls of galleries and public buildings by means of a 1 cm wide brush, one Perspex ellipse template and nine rules. Rules, resulting from drawing practise, are: no dots; no touching or crossing lines; once the ellipse template is positioned, at least three lines must be drawn. Contrary to what one would expect, this results in vividly swirling, curling, floating forms like banners, tubes, clouds or whirls in spatial perspectives.

Gerhard is fascinated by the idea that matter as solid as it may seem, consists of emptiness and particles that are connected to all elements. Inspired by science of micro- and macrocosm that goes beyond imagination, he creates visual correspondence to these insights. Not to explain, but to harmonize and to unify.
