An artistic investigation of the celebrated Case Study Houses, which continue to be prototypes for modern architecture

Signed, limited trade edition of five hundred

The works by Veronika Kellndorfer (*1962 in Munich) oscillate between photography and architecture. Utilizing her archive of photographs taken in Los Angeles, Rome, Paris, and Berlin, she chooses sections, details, and perspectives to print as silkscreens on glass. They are movable pieces of reality that reappear in public spaces and museums, interlacing and overlapping disparate spaces and times: a hunt for traces transferred into the visual space of modern painting.

The artist’s book Case Studies: Layers of Light and Reflection refers back to architectural books from the sixties, such as Esther McCoy’s Case Study Houses. At the same time, it shows how the artist uses zoom, raster, and mirroring to make it possible to see the disturbing potential and aesthetic guise of these architectural icons. A method that presents retro-utopianism as a projection machine and figures the remembrance of memory as the future.

Exhibition schedule: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, July 1, 2012–January 6, 2013
