Biography

A member of Group Zero, founded in the 1960s, Christian Megert creates abstract geometric constructions and environments using mirrors as his primary material. Additionally, he incorporates wood, lights, and motors into his mirror projects to create a disorienting sensation for viewers as they walk through his constructed environments. Attempting to create an infinite space that is “without beginning or end,” simultaneously static and in flux, Megert sees the viewer as a participant who must activate each piece.
