Daniela Ballweg & NIQUU
In rooms of Offenbach’s Schule für Mode. Grafik. Design., Daniela Ballweg and NIQUU offer a view of an unknown world. Visitors are greeted by luminous celestial bodies, which actually lie on the earth, and thus, by a hierarchy seemingly turned upside down. The darkened rooms are illuminated with black light. Large luminous balloons lie on the floor or float in water, while light objects in abstract human silhouette hang from the ceiling, from which drips water of luminous colors.
Videos complement the surreal room installations, inviting the visitor to linger.
Since 1988, Daniela Ballweg (designer and artist) has been lighting up Schule für Mode. Grafik. Design. In recent years, the SfMGD has shone with a fashion show of light entitled „Leuchtstoff" (Light Fabric). This year, together with art student NIQUU, Daniela Ballweg will install a light landscape in several rooms of the school.
