“The Resting Thought”, encourages the viewer to stop for a moment. By using a labyrinthine structure, Alicja Kwade transports us both into an architectural space, as well as into a psychological dimension pertaining to a thought process.
She questions reality by highlighting established human systems that help to understand it, such as notions of time and space. Deeply entrenched and accepted in people’s minds, ironically interpretations. In order to better expose them, Alicja Kwade probes matter and modifies everyday objects in order to look deeper.
Visitors walking around the installation cause the images to shift and the forms of the sculptures to develop as if in a sequence. This poetic work of art is a complex interplay of reflections on the world around us by increasing the number of perspective and involving our bodies.
