Arbeiten / Works 2013–2016
Susanne Pfleger & Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg (Eds.)
Berlin-based artist Kai Schiemenz (b. 1966 Germany) is interested in the effects architecture has on people. Blurring the boundaries between nature and industry, reality and utopia, he stages exhibitions of his constructivist-influenced sculptures in such a way as to invite viewers to actively engage with the objects. For his solo museum exhibition Large and Small – Pistachio/Mallow/Coral at the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg Castle (2016), Schiemenz employs three galleries—one filled with large Styro sculptures, the second with colored glass and ceramic works, and the third containing a long table covered with small colored sculptures. An extensively illustrated exhibition catalog brings together installation views, artist drawings and black-and-white images of the massive outdoor spiraling sculptures. Essays by Susanne Altmann and Sebastian Jaehn.
