Martina Tritthart have created an installation specially for the inside of the tour of St.Andreas church. The artist explore the interplay of light and color through a kinetic installation that react to the audience movement.
Trained as an architect Martina Tritthart has a particular interest in visual perception and spatial experience. She finished her PHD in architecture on “Light Spaces – Spatial Models of Perception”. As an artist she is using various materials and media focusing on light and space. Her installations want to trigger the imagination of the viewer, who are furthermore invited to become participants of the artwork. MORE

Dr. Christian J. Grothaus sayas about her “Martina Tritthart, among other things, ventures on the almost inexhaustible subject of “light”. As is well known, visual perception is always linked to light and shadow. It lives by interactions, reinforcements or reductions of light and colors. Light and its opposite lend plasticity and model the space. So far so good. If the medient theory is affected, references to the central perspective and the “camera obscura” may not be missing. Tritthart makes a phenomenological bridging with August Schmarsow (1853-1936), places him in an “empathy aesthetics” and jumps boldly into the twentieth century to the “spatial turn”, which she classifies as the “[…] causal connection of space and space Body “(p. 144). The transfers have been successfully put into practice. Here is the section on James Turrell, who in his installations manages to make the perception of space a whole body experience and to emphasize the “materiality of light” (p. 147). The descriptions of the art of Olafur Eliasson are also curious; he seems to be gifted to make time experienceable. The interpretation of “space as a medium of representation” (p. 152) by Hartmut Böhme marks the beginning and the end of the essay and complements the definition of atmosphere as spatial, physical presence, which originates from his brother Gernot.” MORE
