Pawel Althamer & Lou Cantor, CLOUDS / 2013
 

The piece is a large inflatable sculpture that will be enterable by viewers. The sculpture was created with the kind support of Hug & von Below and will be debuted in January 2013, during artgenève. 

The work of Warsaw-based artist Pawel Althamer frequently focuses on problems of participation and group relations; he has recently shown at Ludwig Museum in Köln, at MUSEION in Bolzano, the Guggenheim Berlin, and at Wiener Secession in Vienna. In 2010 he won the Kunstpreis Aachen.



Lou Cantor is a Berlin-based collective, working in diverse media, whose projects frequently take intersubjectivity as their theme. Previous exhibitions include the 7th Berlin Biennale, New National Art at the Warsaw MoMA, and the Villa Tokyo.



The works of both Cantor and Althamer are united by an interest in intersubjectivity and their discrete practices grounded in problems and modes of participation.
Figures enter, dance, and jump within an immense sculptural Cloud. The premise is simple.
