About the Artist

Realized through the engineering or construction techniques, the oeuvre of German artistKarsten Födinger(1978, German)brings forth the role of the mechanics as a constitutional element of sculpture­ – we are reminded that it is such a genre that rigidly follows the law of physics. The architectonical fundamentals, such as the cantilever, the avalanche breaker, or the riverside reinforcements, are utilized as a language for one to reflect on the climatic, geographical uncertainties that grounds and un-grounds the current planetary condition.
