Kay Walkowiak - Forms in Time

Exhibition, MAK, Vienna, Austria.


From April 20, 2016 until October 2, 2016
Here, Kay Walkowiak focuses on fragments of a subjective phenomenology of (ideal) form. Following several scholarship residencies in Japan, India, and China, he has developed a special interest in the language of form and culture, and has been working continuously since 2013 on a series of works concerning Le Corbusier’s planned city of Chandigarh, which demonstrates the limits of ‘timeless modernity’ as a prototypical, failed urban utopia. Walkowiak explores the question of timelessness on the basis of the bipolar cultural­historical mentalities of the East and West in an eclectic composition of new film and sculptural works.
