sculpture: Daniel Knorr. Explosion

30/3 2012 — 31/5 2013

Daniel Knorr?s work is the materialization of an explosion. The sculpture shows a process that spans only fractions of a second: the volume extension caused by the shock wave is suspended and becomes haptically graspable. We are familiar with explosions from the media mainly, through embedded journalism, and the popularity of first-person shooters. The notion of explosives as symbols of powerful, intensive moments has become an everyday metaphor.

Explosion is a sculpture specifically developed for its site and will be presented by the KUNSTHALLE wien together with the Romanian Cultural Institute in Vienna.

Daniel Knorr was born in Bucharest in 1968; he lives in Berlin.

Curator: Cathérine Hug
