Manfred Pernice

31 Jan - 09 Mar 2013

The sculptor Manfred Pernice has diagnosed today's world as suffering from increasing banality; he responds to this condition with his sculptures and installations. The “Verdostheit der Welt” (the "canned quality" of the world), as he calls it, is due to the continuous presence of regulation by means of laws, rules, behavioural patterns, and conventional categories and systems of classification. Thus, he understands his work to be an agent that at the same time reflects these systems, reduces them to absurdity, or restructures them.
