With dizzying wall graphics paying homage to warped funhouse mirrors, artist Peter Kogler transforms abnormal galleries, transit facilities, and lobbies into close to hallucinatory experiences. For over 30 years, the Austrian artist has labored on the intersection of structure and new media to assemble each immersive environments and sculptural parts that appears to redefine bodily areas. By plastering partitions with optical illusions he challenges a viewer’s sense of depth (and sanity) along with his formidable monochromatic installations of repeating patterns that incorporate pipes, ants, and daring snake-like patterns.

Kogler’s most up-to-date items have been on view on the ING Art Center in Brussels and at ERES-Stiftung in Munich earlier this 12 months. You possibly can see rather more on his website.
