Peter Kogler drives us crazy
Artist Peter Kogler transforms ordinary galleries, transit centers, and lobbies into amazing hallucinatory experiences. For over 30 years, the Austrian artist has been interacting in the architecture and new media to construct immersive environments and sculptural elements that redefine physical spaces. His optical illusions challenge a viewer’s sense of depth (and sanity) with his ambitious monochromatic installations of repeating patterns that incorporate pipes, ants, and bold snake-like patterns.
Kogler’s most recent pieces were on view at the ING Art Center in Brussels and at ERES-Stiftung in Munich earlier this year. You can see much more on his website.
