This artist publication is published on occasion of the exhibition Images Entertain Thought at Mai 36 Galerie in 2017. The booklet, which also serves as invitation card, is the second installment in a series of seven publications focusing on the thinking revolving around contemporary sculpture. Each installment elaborates on a specific sculptural problematic.
Koenraad Dedobbeleer (*1975 in Halle, Belgium) creates sculptures, objects, in-situ installations and photographs teeming with associations, tongue-in-cheek commentaries and art historical references. He places the focus firmly on everyday objects, which he modifies and recontextualises. He does this by means of methods such as deconstruction and manipulation, so that the contextual shifts and transformations of these everyday objects and motifs prompt the viewer to question the essential quality of things and their existence within newly created frames of reference. This approach opens up new perspectives and potential for a variety of interpretations.
