Totality of All Spaces
In the exhibition Totality of All Spaces Alicja Kwade is occupied with scientific theories on the physical property of certain materials, which she afterwards repeatedly attempts to circumvent. She is using everyday articles and found objects as her starting point, but in her materially precisely worked out sculptures they undergo a subtle change in meaning; the readymade becomes a minimal sculpture and mirror reflections, repetitions and waves of light generate an atmospheric intensity. Kopenhagen met Alicja Kwade at 44 Møen.
Alicja Kwade (b. 1979 in Poland) is educated from Universität der Künste in Berlin in 2005. In the past Kwade has had solo exhibitions at Oldenburger Kunstverein, 2011, Kunstverein Bremerhaven, 2011, Westfälisher Kunstverein, 2010, Johann König, 2009, Galerie Christina Wilson, 2009, Hamburger Bahnhof, 2008, among others.
