The embassy of the Federal republic of Germany in Baku has collaborated with the Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Art and arranged an exhibition “Baku Spaces No. 5” featuring work by artist Marc Schmitz. Schmitz’ work involves structures and installations that use human body to understand the fundamental bonding between the self and the environment.
His previous exhibitions have been featured in Tokyo, Ulan Bator and other cities across the globe. His works deal with issues related to human comprehension of space, time and paradoxical situations.
The exhibition would be inaugurated at the Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine art on 12th June, 2009. Visitors interested can visit the academy till the first of July in order to view his works. The Spaces exhibition has met with success all over the world and it would be interesting to see the Azeri people’s reaction to these abstract installations.
