Karsten Konrad
“Zig Zag Zurich”
Solo exhibition at Arndt & Partner, Zurich

In his first solo show with Arndt & Partner in Zurich, the Berlin based artist Karsten Konrad performs a kind of tour de force through the history of art of the 20th century by embracing elements of Cubism, Constructivism, Surrealism, Ready-made, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art and Minimal.
Bulky waste items and furniture parts are used in the creation of his sculptures, which can be divided into three groups: wall pieces in relief, which resemble Abstracts on wood; wall sculptures, which disregard static geometries and interplay with the wall itself; and, finally, flowing, playful, dance-like forms and statically constructed architecture. Here, the viewer is exposed to three-dimensional logos, graffiti tags or exploding architectural situations.
