Stools with seven legs, polyhedra that hang from the ceiling, models of garden pavilions – Martin Feiersinger’s investigation of geometry and space has generated many findings. Why do Leonardo da Vinci’s divine proportions include so many irrational bodies? And which spaces can be created by interweaving Platonic bodies? Feiersinger’s installation wanders between these questions – sometimes paying very concrete attention to the basic requirements of the act of sitting, sometimes mathematically abstract and quite free of scale or function, and then, in turn, focused on architecture in the form of pavilions, pleasure houses, and follies. The title of the exhibition implies a way of working and thinking or a love for geometry that can be crossed in every direction – as applied art in mixed forms and mannerism just as much as in its weightless perfect form.
