Works by Carsten Nicolai (*1965) oscillate around the interfaces between visual art and electronic sound. He has created the light installation tele to fill the first exhibition space in the Berlinische Galerie. It alludes to a peculiar property of quantum entanglement. The phenomenon whereby two quantum systems that are widely separate in space share the same condition was described by Albert Einstein as “spooky action at a distance”: the two particles are so interconnected that any change in one has a direct, instantaneous effect on the state of the other, as if there were some telepathic link between them. The installation consists of two mirror sculptures almost three metres high resembling a split Archimedean solid. These too seem to communicate in eerie ways – by means of laser beams.
