Details: In Aporie is the first survey on the work of Polish-born, Berlin-based Alicja Kwade (born 1979), whose installations and sculptures that synthesize physics and art have made her one of the most acclaimed artists of her generation (recently winning her a Rooftop Commission at the Met in New York).Kwade’s previous works have explored probability calculation, astronomical wormholes, infinite universes and parallel realities. The title of this volume alludes to an insoluble theoretical problem that allows for the paradoxical knowledge of one's own ignorance. This theme unites works that explore, for example, handwriting mimicking that of various personalities admired by Kwade, which she has analyzed by a graphologist; a sculpture made of old clock weights; and an installation of copper horns that seem to explore and listen to gallery space.Alongside numerous images of her work, In Aporie features articles by several experts on her work.
