During the Art Week, the exhibition will open its doors from Thursday to Sunday (10.-13.09.2020) from 12 noon – 7pm. After that you can visit the show until 10.10.2020, every Wednesday-Friday from 2-7pm and Saturday from 12 noon -7pm.

Czakainski builds spatial and three-dimensional wall sculptures from various materials, which from a bird’s eye view are reminiscent of slums and urban structures marked by devastation and destruction. In doing so, he alienates the materials used and thus creates certain illusions.

Hendrik Czakainski fills his large wall sculptures with the particles and raindrops of our contaminated civilization, building his imaginary constructions only to let them succumb to the invisible and poisonous streams that run through it. Huge fracture lines dislocate high-density environments while structures are flooded with the colored poisons that irrigate the veins of our industrial civilization. (Source)
