19/06/2019 — KUNST[NEST for Fritz Balthaus
Berlin artist @FritzBalthaus is a renown artist who creates works which oscillate between images, sculpture and architecture. They are precise procedural experiments and often ironic interventions within the art world and its exhibiting conventions.
Fritz and I have been working together for a couple of years submitting ideas to open and invited art competitions. Starting with the concept phase we usually discuss an idea and my job is to then develop a convincing visualization for a competition entry. Here, we have our latest winning proposal realized and I recently went to photograph it.
KUNST[NEST is a public artwork located at @MaxDelbrückCentrum in #Berlin Buch. Its shape creates a high point inviting storks to breed there. The sculpture consists of materials and objects from its direct surroundings: a bunch of street lights seem randomly stacked onto each other and a pile of wood beams haphazardly lie on top referring to the facade elements of the nearby research facility which was planned by @heinlewischer. This approach makes a conscious reference to the principle of bricolage. It is expressed in what storks naturally do when building a nest – they implement all kinds of materials from their direct environment.
