In a state of limbo between materiality and transcendence, Camill Leberer has been creating showcases since the 1990s, which close themselves off in their brittle appearance and yet at the same time reveal themselves sensually: The viewer experiences them as constructivist housings when looking at them from a distance, but it is only up close that he grasps the space: not only haptically, but also aurally. With his Vi-trines, the artist builds intermediate places for himself by integrating colored glass panes into the otherwise brittle steel-glass construction, past which one looks at papers with poems. The multiple refractions relativize space as a geometrically defined quantity, while the texts are transformed into sculptural signs through the glass. Interior and exterior space cancel each other out under the superstructure that connects the two stand tables. Thus, the enclosure becomes a thought space and the poems, as tangible messengers of thought, become "objects" in the transparent ensemble. Just as Leberer experiences painterly elements as sculptural-spatial, he also understands the poetic elements as sculptural moments. The title "Ausgleich" summarizes the processual procedures of walking around and approaching and distancing oneself.
