JURGEN OTS (°1978, B)lives and works in Brussels, www.galleriazero.it/en/node/374
Jurgen Ots works primarily with videos and installations. Central in his art works are the choices of material and the traces of destruction, corrosion and his own manipulations. Earlier art works consisted of linoleum and faded projection screens showing color shifts: traces of a history of projected images. Recently Jurgen Ots combines projection screens from China with a tissue, found in Ostend, corroded by natural phenomena. His works are the result of a painstakingly patient production. In this process Jurgen Ots disposes the original features of the material and converts them in a new unity, thus becoming the size of architectural elements, relating to the space.
In The Living Room XL Jurgen Ots installed his newest construction in the garden. A glowing spotlight enlightens the art piece. After half an hour the piece returns to the darkness.
