St Laurentius Church, Nürtingen
Oliver Feigl: »Limen«
Pure white light slowly roams across the tower of St Laurentius Church in Nürtingen. The light is reflected by the tower's structure, making it visible in its material substance. The installation is rounded off by a video work on the external wall of the basement next to the church. Then, metaphorically and figuratively, the light becomes the subject. Associative references to light as a prerequisite for perception and a symbol of insight merge with abstract shapes that evoke traditional ways of presenting its metaphysical significance. Stuttgart video artist Oliver Feigl opens a dialogue between the pictorial, narrative level of cinematic work and the abstract, physical experience of the light on the tower.
Video artist Oliver Feigl was born in 1983.

Feigl has created video installations for numerous theatre and opera productions. He is a member of the multi-media Meinhardt-Krauss-Feigl Cinematographic Theatre ensemble and ran Arbeitstitel, an independent project space in Stuttgart.
