Weight of Glass is the first solo exhibition of Chicago based artist Jan Tichy with Galerie Kornfeld in Berlin and will open concurrently with Jan Tichy: Installation Nr. 29 (Neues Rathaus), the first institutional solo exhibition of the artist in Germany at the Kunsthalle Osnabrück. The two exhibitions will both feature a new real-time neon work entitled German Nature, 2016 that uses light as a way of registering the new languages introduced to the German landscape with the arrival of over one million refugees. Kunsthalle Osnabruck will publish an accompanying catalog with texts by Prof. Dr. Barbara Kaesbohrer and Dr. Robin Schuldenfrei.
