KAY WALKOWIAK
DIVINE MONOCHROMES

Curated by Cornelis van Almsick

08.06. - 30.07.2016
Galerie Crone, Vienna

With the new body of works which will be shown at Crone Wien, Walkowiak draws a direct reference to minimalism. This referencing does not happen in the form of a remake or adaptation which can currently be observed in the arts, but rather dialectically, juxtaposed to changing socio-cultural backgrounds mostly in East Asia. The serious rigor of these uncompromising and respectively untouchable visions of modernity are being deployed as projection planes for Asian utopias - resulting in a mystical functionalization of his artworks.
