Lukas Zerbst was born in Poland, got migrated to Germany by his parents, lives towhere today and works everywhere; He overcomes borders with his engagement in transcultural projects with Vietnam, Lithuania or Florida.
In his site-specific installations he uses on-spot material, intervenes in space, enhances it with mechanical or electrical components and video. The interest in an intermediate encounter between viewer and art work brought him to work with performance art at first — Today he finds this moment in his work with space.
Lukas sees space and it’s inner elements as living subjects with an urge to encounter it’s visitors. The breakup of the constant of physical space results in a performance of the objects. Beyond an irritation or the spectacular those manipulated objects of purpose represent human desire. Our surrounding consists of this expressive material: On one hand following a concrete purpose, on the other hand representing human habit.
