NEW CATALOGUE AVAILABLE!

ANDREAS SCHMITTEN - BODIES

"Seemingly assembled as objects and scenarios, Andreas Schmitten's works are only partially completed for the situations they suggest. They evoke domestic and urban structures; furniture, homes and streets all become abstract and vacant containers. The surfaces are finished, yet the contents are not quite right. The forms resemble other objects, such as slick futuristic church furnishings and plumbing features, yet their purpose is not completely clear. It is as if they are from a time and space that is very familiar but not fully graspable. Furthermore, Schmitten's works transform and define the spaces in chic they are shown. In this manner, they combine effects from both furniture and architecture, and merge them into tense scenarios."
(Ruba Katrib, Andreas Schmitten: Objects for themselves and others, in: Andreas Schmitten - Bodies, 2017, p. 13)

 

The catalogue is published on the occasion of the 2017 Falkenrot Prize exhibition at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (07.07.-17.09.2017).
