Provenance:
apartment of Kurt Palm, 1070 Vienna, No. 7 Faßziehergasse, in situ until 2016

In 1994, Kurt Palm had his apartment redesigned by the architect Karl Meinhart and then also asked the artist Heimo Zobernig to add a conceptual element. Zobernig’s interventions consisted of three minimalistic devices: The globular industrial glass lamp in the living room was coated in yellow. Above the dining area, Zobernig suspended a black aluminium panel with an opening large enough to accommodate the lamp. Light-blue screens brought more light to the bedroom facing the backyard.

“This introduced some accents of colour in the otherwise white architecture and added a new level of meaning: a transcendent spatial triangle that was meant to create a link to the outside.”
(Heimo Zobernig)
