In Alicja Kwade’s WeltenLinie, 2020, nothing is quite what it seems. Evolving as an experience rather than a static installation, this work comes to life through the viewer’s movement. Through the use of doublesided mirrors and carefully placed, paired objects, Kwade’s installation creates the illusion of sudden and surprising material transformations. As visitors move within the steel structure, the way that objects are understood within the space shifts dramatically, depending on perspective. Kwade’s work explores concepts of space, time, science and philosophy. In her practice that spans across a wide range of media, she questions the structures of reality and reflects on perceptual habits in everyday life.
