For HOT MESS, Alicja Kwade will be exhibiting Kehrtwende.
Alicja Kwade’s work investigates and questions the structures which uphold our reality, creating installations which reflect on the role of temporality in our day to day lives. With a diverse practice, the cosmos of her work orbit concepts such as time, space, science and philosophy, and are realised through the mediums of sculpture, video and photography.
