Christian Megert Biography

Christian Megert is a Swiss born sculptor, installation and object artist. With his structural, material and frottage works of the 1950s—both informal and monochrome—as well as his light box and mirror works, Christian Megert is an important representative of the ZERO movement through light and concrete art. Megert uses mirrors as reflectors of light and movement in the manner of ZERO, they dissect space and give way to monochrome worlds of coloured spaces. The mirror, as an industrially manufactured material, is Megert's medium of choice for changing, breaking and multiplying shapes to create a new space that ultimately reaches into infinity. The artist animates the material by cutting, collaging, colouring and glazing it. In his installations, mostly in plexiglas boxes, he also uses foils and light sources such as fluorescent tubes to create different light and colour spaces.
