Under the title PERPLEXY the HaL is showing the first Berlin institutional solo exhibition of the draughtsman and object artist Tobias Dostal (*1982). Several new works are presented, which were conceived by the artist site-specifically. Upon entering the darkened exhibition rooms, visitors enter a world inspired by the early history of cinema, in which various illusion apparatuses perform their partly noisy work. These are mainly further developments and variations of Dostal's kinetic light sculptures and animation displays made of acrylic glass. They are based on a staged aesthetic rupture that, after the amazement at the picture's magic, exposes the mechanisms of its creation. The presentation and perception of images are the actual themes of Tobias Dostal's works, which can be understood, among other things, as an answer to the smoothness and seductive power of digital virtuality.
