de Appel arts centre cordially invites you to the opening of the solo exhibition by Alicja Kwade on Friday February 5th from 6 - 9 PM
Bend. Break. Stack. Mirror. Visual artist Alicja Kwade (DE) uses different strategies in her work, based on thorough scientific-artistic research. She manipulates everyday objects and materials – a pallet, a bicycle, a door, a nightlight, a mirror – and turns them into new shapes which she presents as separate sculptures or installations. The result often feels introverted and formal, but also frequently has a humouristic undertone. By disfiguring the reality and the manipulation of materials and shapes, the viewer is constantly misled. Kwade creates sensory illusions that test our thought and perception. She pushes the viewer to contemplate the nature of objects and to question what is actually really ‘true’ in the reality that surrounds us.
