At the 2018 edition Karlsruhe Art Fair we present the installation "Ad Astra" by Hiroyuki Masuyama. It consists of the sphere "0" (at the “sculpture square”) and a one-artist show. The Sphere "0" is a walk-through wooden ball of 300 cm diameter, perforated with 30,000 glass fiber pens of different size and colour, which depict the stars of the northern and southern hemispheres. Who climbs them sees stars on all sides, as if one were floating alone in space.
We are looking forward to seeing you at our booth.

Hiroyuki Masuyama & Caspar David Friedrich
An extensive series of works by Hiroyuki Masuyama are devoted to Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840), the most important German landscape painter of that era. He recreates Friedrich's paintings anew by using thousands of detail photographs. Suddenly, Friedrich's freely imagined scenarios achieve the credibility of photographic images. Phantasies of the 19th century, considered with the eyes of the twenty-first - an exciting journey through time begins. Seeing the past in the bright light of the present, without the patina of time - the works of Hiroyuki Masuyama make it possible.
