Installations by Alicja Kwade
Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Katowice, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, and with attempting to examine (if not resolve) issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures (as well as installations, photographs, and films), Kwade occupies herself with the structural properties of everyday objects. Common materials of little to no value such as glass, wood, and copper are transformed via elaborate, alchemical operations. Through these physical shifts, Kwade proposes new meaning and value.
Alicja Kwade lives and works in Berlin. She received a degree in sculpture from the Universität der Künste, Berlin in 2005.
