Heimo Zobernig’s experimental approach to the concept of sculpture often leads him to previously unexplored boundaries between art and architecture or design. For instance, he developed two large-scale, black installations for the floor and ceiling of the Austrian pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2015, which playfully question the relationship between bodies in space. Part of this radical yet minimalist installation was transferred to the Museum Ludwig where he full-scale replica served as a pedestal for the museum’s sculpture collection. This succinct placement can be read as a humorous and ironic commentary on collections and artistic self-conception.
