Lorenz Pasch

January 2020

Lorenz Pasch (b.1990) studies in the class of Prof. Friederike Feldmann at the Berlin Weißensee School of Art since 2014. He works with installation, performance and video. His – how he calls it – “metaphysical toolkit” consists of reoccurring materials, ideas and terms that change meaning in different constellations. The works develop out of the relation between a given physical space and the added materials to transform situations. Pasch is recipient of a scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation since 2017. Since 2014, his work has been featured in exhibitions in various project spaces, galleries and art houses in Berlin. Prize-winner (special distinction) in the 2019 edition of the sonotopia competition.

Statement
Temporal installation, 2019, Tehran

The installation consists of the whole interior of the artists private room at the Residency. Every part, let it be bed or shelf, curtains or ashtray, are dismantled from their original function and meaning to plain material. Reassembled into a new constellation and function the objects therefor gain a new meaning. All parts where rearranged reversible, and as the installation will be deinstalled, the room will go back to its initial shape. What seems stable at a first glance is actually a balancing act. An element might just be slightly moved from its primary position, another one so far, that it seems to be not originated in the interior at all. The work invites to trace this movements, follow each change from a former meaning to a new interpretation. Small seemingly figures ask to change the real-live size of the room to a model size- is this room maybe a city and I am a giant intruder?
