A whole room becomes a stage for the point. Inspired by ­Pythagoras, who used ten points in a triangular formation to hierarchically and mathematically define not only the decimal system but the entire world, Achim Freyer orchestrates spatial “drifts” of point, line, color, and illusion. His points of reference are his production of “Pelléas und Mélisande” at the Musiktheater in Linz and his exhibition “Auf den Punkt” (To the Point) at the Galerie Brunnhofer in 2016.
