Works

Light, the natural and the artificial, has always been the focus of Christoph Dahlhausens artistic research. In the early 1990 he used photography to catch light effects and created painting like ‘light images’. Later his glassworks have been exhibited worldwide. These glassworks painted shadows on the wall, created a dialog and between the real space and the virtual visible in the work. Since 2005 the German artist uses artificial light, special blue fluorescent light tubes, not just as an additional esthetical element in sculptural situations or as illumination, but as an independent medium. For the combination of blue fluorescent light tubes with ordinary steel scaffoldings Dahlhausen was nominated for the short list of the first international light art award.

Exhibitions

Christoph Dahlhausens work has been exhibited in museums, galleries and art fairs worldwide. Solo exhibitions had been shown at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Museum am Ostwall Dortmund, Museum of Modern Art Melbourne, Palais fuer Aktuelle Kuns Glueckstadt among others. His work is represented by Galerie Kim Behm (Frankfurt), Galerie Floss & Schultz (Cologne), La Estacion Arte Contemporaneo (Chihuahua, Mex.), Everything Nothing Projects (Canbarra, Aus), Espace Meyer Zafra (Paris, F).

Projects

Art in architedture and art in public are important issues and fields in Dahlhausens practice. Site specific installations using vinyl on glass he realized as comissions worlwide, for example at the Brasilian Ministery for Education and Health in Rio De Janeiro, a Oscar Niemeier building, Konrad Adenauer Association in Berlin, Kreditanstalt fuer Wiederaufbau Berlin, Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne among others. His participatory public art projects have been done for example in Germany, The Netherlands, Hong- Kong and New Zealand.
