Dunkle Kammer,Ulrich Vogl’s third solo show in Ireland. Dunkle Kammer / Dark Chamber combines various media, drawing, film and sculpture to capture the order (well made drawings and wall mounted sculpture) with the chaos (trashy mobile objects) of the cosmos. Like in previous exhibitions each of his works is underwritten by a strong conceptual basis and he chooses to realize each in the most appropriate manner, whatever that might be. There is also a persuasive consistency to what he does that suggest a concerted engagement with certain core process and media, and it’s reasonable to suggest that this ongoing engagement is the dynamo that drives his work along a definite line of development*. Welcome to Vogl’s world.
