Albrecht Schäfer
Winds and Windings
July 6 – September 7, 2008

Diffuse light is refracted a hundred-fold, space is infused with light and darkness. Simple materiality is contrasted with filigree forms, clear lines spiritedly condensed into a hermetic confusion. Albrecht Schäfer’s works reveal a magical aspect in the everyday. The artist deconstructs the objects and spaces around us whilst remaining constantly beholden to the materiality and constitution of things. The newly emerging forms seem to have already adopted the logic of the material. Schäfer reveals both unexpected and obvious structures and possibilities as he pushes forward, so to speak, to the very core of the objects. In an intense engagement with the existing space at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Albrecht Schäfer has created a number of new works.
