For me Lüben is a place with a clear contact with the horizon even when there are woods and cornfields. The horizons on the out- and inside of the panorama are done with pigments won out auf Lüben soil. The inside horizon line is formed by aerosoles – breath – and symbolizes the fragility of today’s world.
Dutch artist Leen Kaldenberg uses a light color palette to create tranquil landscapes that he reduces to the essentials in order to capture their essence. In colored sketches a few brushstrokes reminiscent of Japanese ink drawings are sufficient to ewoke the image. In an expansive installation, Kaldenberg presents a panorama with a recognizable deep horizon. The work, which is around eight meters long, is made on paper with pigments gained from Lüben soil and fixed to the outside of a cylindrical metal frame. In the interior of the walk-in installation, Kaldenberg presents visualizations of his breath.
