Marguerite Hersberger (1943) is a draughtswoman, painter and sculptress. She develops a sculptural work that is reduced to elementary structures. Questions about the relationship between light and space and the theme of transparency have occupied the artist since the beginning of her work. They are reflected in numerous projects at home and abroad. In the exhibition (Räumliche Transparanz) she shows sculptures and three-dimensional wall objects made of transparent acrylic glass, one of her favourite materials.
The focus of the presentation is on the groups “Pliagen” (Folding). In these works, which are made out of one sheet, spaces are created by applying transparent layers of paint on top of each other. These are taken apart by incisions and create new impressions of colour and space. She is not primarely concerned with the illusionistic, but with the optically perceptible space.
