REISE OHNE ANKUNFT (RALEIGH), 2012/2013

Alicja Kwade’s sculptures liquify, upturn, twin, and mirror found materials and everyday objects. With familiar forms gone awry, her poetic works transform materials in ways that suggest time and space are malleable ideas. To create "Journey without Arrival (Raleigh)", Kwade has dismantled and reassembled a bicycle, bending each element to form a perfect circle. As if caught between dimensions, the new object is at once surreal and surprising, calling attention to its seemingly impossible form.
