David Lamelas

July 6 – September 10, 2006

Since the 1960s, David Lamelas has been among the most important proponents of a conceptual approach to art. Especially his early structuralist films and media installations, made when he was living in Belgium, London, and Los Angeles in the sixties and seventies, display a highly individual treatment of time and space. In his projects, Lamelas deals impressively with the question of the limits of art’s temporality and its potential for creating alternative processes of communication and cognition.
