Composing space: Platino’s event fields

Platino unhinges space. What happens when coordinates are lacking, when spatial structures dissolve? The color interventions by the Stuttgart-based artist force us to see things in a new way, to submit ourselves to a process of appropriating the exhibition context. Lots of red along with other areas and shades of color restructure the white cube, lever out lines of sight, reinterpret spaces. Platino (*1948 in Öhringen) initially concentrates his artistic inquiry on stagings in his studio, living for years in carefully composed, predominantly red rooms: his SPACES. The EXTERNS constitute a further, more intense level in his oeuvre: acrylic glazed Cibachrome prints of installation documents whose reflecting surfaces draw viewers and their surroundings into the picture—a repositioning of art not only in the literal sense. The volume documents a large-scale installation by the artist at the Württembergischer Kunstverein.
