“Right now we are sitting on a spinning sphere somewhere in the universe, which is rotating at 3600km per hour. It’s so absurd, so all the rest is kind of funny!”

Alicja Kwade’s work investigates and questions the structures of our reality and society and reflects on the perception of time in our everyday life. Her diverse practice is based around concepts of space, time, science and philosophy, takes shape in sculptural objects, video and even photography.
