The work of Sonia Leimer (b. Merano, 1977) calls into question the foundations of our perception, which are based on individual, historic and media-based experience models. Her sculptures, videos and installations alternate between real locations and imaginary cinema-like contexts and indefinite dimensions, such as cosmic galaxies that are so far away they are practically virtual. Significantly, the focus of her solo exhibition at Museion is space waste – a subject that Leimer has returned to again and again in her work. The exhibition will therefore feature a number of metal sculptures, created as space waste that has fallen to earth and which the artist has reconstructed in detail.
