Alicja Kwade

Year and place of birth: 1979, Katowice, Poland Location: Berlin, Germany

For the last ten years, Alicja Kwade has been modifying everyday objects such as brooms, wall-clocks and doors. She quite literally bends them by means of complicated technical processes. This gives a new and peculiar form to things that are familiar and recognisable. Alicja Kwade’s oeuvre, which consists mainly of sculpture and installations, looks as if it has come from a parallel world where different physical laws apply. Her works defy logic and prompt us to take a dynamic approach to such concepts as reality, space and time.
