Using glass to explore a provocative range of artistic and intellectual concerns, Josiah McElheny (*1966 in Boston) produces dazzling fabricated objects that address such subjects as the nature of visual perception, the narratives of modernism, and the origin of the universe. Since 2007 he has produced a series of sculptures and a film inspired by 'The Light Club of Batavia', a 1912 text by German Expressionist writer Paul Scheerbart. This publication focuses on McElheny's 'Light Club' works, which investigate the role of glass in utopian ideas about modernist architecture.,Exhibition: Wexner Center for the Arts, The Ohio State University, Columbus, USA (26.1.-7.5.2013).
