Thomas Zipp at Guido W. Baudach in Berlin
Thomas Zipp’s exhibition for Berlin Gallery Weekend 2021 is conceived as a space-specific overall experience that brings together works of different media such as painting, sculpture and performance in an installation in situ. Titled Response to Transient and Steady State Flickering Stimuli, Thomas Zipp once again addresses functions of the human perceptual apparatus in relation to mental processes, as well as scientific approaches to their exploration beyond the academic mainstream.
Thomas Zipp negotiates these often complex theoretical contexts by creating transformational images, objects, and situations that are as concise as they are multi-layered. On the one hand, they are based on a profound examination of the respective subject matter, and on the other hand, they are developed from a vocabulary that is all his own, rhizome-like, linking the most diverse aspects of art and cultural history with the subject matter, for which he is widely known as an artist.
