Erik Steinbrecher – Lago Mio

In the artists’ book "Lago Mio" Steinbrecher turns the world upside down and plays with the unstable and fragile condition of balancing umbrellas on the water, or – depending on the perspective – balancing the sea on an umbrella. This simple shift of viewpoint and the irritation of our conditioned visual perception charges this object with some truly psychedelic energy.

The exhibition at MATERIAL expands the artists’ book with an installation in the bookshop.
