Two site-specific works, Light Mobile and Projected Bubbles were realized at the artist’s arrival in Tunis.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: I want to understand the world and also create new ones. For achieving this, I look for various occasions. As an artist, designer and trained craftsmen, I have developed a wide range of activities that mutually benefit each other. Addressing material, appearance, functionality and importance is reflected both in the conceptual and the applied work.

Ingo Wendt’s artistic bearings are light art, architecture, and kinesis. He gets his inspiration from cultural realities, natural and urban landscapes as well as from architecture and historical places. His artworks, which often have a highly playful character, create beautiful atmospheres wherein colors become almost tactile matters. Even though this might not be his main focus, his interventions in public spaces have rarely failed to improve people’s ability to better value the urban and architectural environments they live in.
