Museum Haus Konstruktiv begins its 2018 annual program with a comprehensive solo exhibition by Alicja Kwade (b. 1979 in Katowice, Poland, lives in Berlin). This renowned sculptor and conceptual artist asks questions of the world: How did the universe come about? What is reality? What is illusion? Do parallel worlds exist?
In her multimedia work, Kwade takes such questions as a starting point and addresses a wide range of very different phenomena and conceptual models from physics, philosophy and sociology, vividly translating these into her distinctive art. This results in works that are as sensorially poetic as they are formally stringent. For the exhibition at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, which extends over three floors, Kwade has conceived a new, extensive installation: a walk-through grid structure, in which differently sized solid balls of natural stone float above the observers’ heads in apparent weightlessness.
