Robert Irwin is currently showcasing a solo exhibition at Sprüth Magers Berlin outpost. To coincide with the event, the renowned American artist was commissioned to create a site-specific installation at Kraftwerk Berlin, titled Space and Light.

In the latest project, the former German power station turned techno club is illuminated by a wall of fluorescent light tubes that evoke a rhythmic yet undecipherable pattern throughout. Measuring roughly 52 x 52 feet, Space and Light is commissioned by the art foundation, Light Art Space (LAS) and is Irwin’s largest European work to date.

A pioneer of the Light and Space art movement that manifested in Southern California in the 1960s, Irwin investigates our experiential relationships with the built environment. Space and Light (Kraftwerk Berlin) is on view until January 29.
