Vienna Secession - Association of Visual Artists
26 November 2010 - 13 February 2011

Berlin-based German artist Manfred Pernice developed the sculpturama show especially for the Hauptraum at the Secession. His sculptural works are built or assembled out of simple, sometimes painted or sprayed materials including cardboard, chipboard, concrete, and metal, supplemented with text, maps or photographs. Starting from his observations of the urban environment, he highlights its failings and subjects the ordering system of modernity to a fundamental critique. His works set up an interplay between autonomous form and an installation-based, narrative and site-specific character.
