Some Material Culture Following A Random Method Based On Aleatory Rules
20 January - 10 March, 2012

We are proud to announce our next exhibition of recent work by the Belgian artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer. He is the 2009 recipient of the Mies van der Rohe grant of the city of Krefeld. Koenraad Dedobbeleer creates sculptures, objects, and site-related installations, which strike a chord and yet catch us off balance. His works abound in allusion, ironic commentary and art historical reference. The artist reinterprets everyday objects by subjecting them to subtle but effective modifications, for instance, by changing their size, color or material, or transplanting them into a modernist context. He draws attention to their relationship with the Modernism of the 1920s and 1930s and, at the same time, subverts it in interventions that range from near imperceptibility to large, stage-like productions.
