Tilo Schulz

Stage Diver

September 19 – November 9, 2008

In his show entitled Stage Diver, Tilo Schulz presents an installation conceived specifically for the Secession. Three interconnected rooms built from precious mahogany panels extend through the gallery’s exhibition halls, creating a space that offers visitors a variety of subtle experiences. The space begins as a stage, then transforms into a small enclosed gallery where the artist’s drawings are on view, and finally leads into a long catwalk that extends to the end of the exhibition hall, where a casually arranged stack of Thonet chairs creates the impression of a long-abandoned place.


Tilo Schulz, born in Leipzig in 1972, lives and works in Berlin.
