People who have saved this event:



The work of Alicja Kwade (*1979) is inspired by scientific,
philosophical and social questions. By exploring
models and constructs that form our perception of
time, space and matter, her large-scale installations
question the possibilities of objective and subjective
For this show at the Berlinische Galerie,
the artist begins by focusing on herself. “In Abwesenheit“
(In Absence) centres on recent works by Alicja
Kwade that might in a broad sense be read as
self-portraits. Kwade seeks ways to describe a person
and their physical presence in space: with a
heartbeat, an individual DNA code or a combination
of chemical elements.
With Kwade’s installation designed specifically
for our first big exhibition hall, the Berlinische
Galerie has added another work to its successful format
of in-situ projects by contemporary artists working
in Berlin. Kwade studied at Berlin’s University of
the Arts from 1999 to 2005 and is now one of the most
sought-after artists in the international arena. She
has recently exhibited in, among other places, Tours,
Helsinki, Copenhagen, Zurich, Barcelona, Shanghai,
Reykjavik, Venice, New York and London.
