Esther Mathis_1dic

Esther Mathis is one of the artists of the traditional December exhibition to be held at the Kunst Museum Winterthur with the video installation entitled Der Mittlere Himmel (KMW, 21.12.17 – 21.09.18). The exhibition, a collective exhibition organized in collaboration with Künstlergruppe and the Kunsthalle Winterthur, intends to offer new perspectives on the regional art scene.

The installation presented by Mathis consists of a four-channel video resulting from a long research on the museum skylight that the artist has played in recent years. The skylight is the central architectural element of many museum buildings and immerses the exhibition rooms in a diffused light. The videos, in time-laps, were shot during the four most emblematic days of the year: the longest day, the shortest day and the first day of spring and autumn; these show not only the different seasons and the variation during the day, but also visualize the technical struggle for optimal lighting conditions.


Starts: December 1, 2018
Ends: January 6, 2019
