Product Description

In his sculptures and installations, Florian Neufeldt (b. Bonn, 1976; lives and works in Berlin) creates self-contained systems in which meaning circulates. Embedding folded doorframes and chair frameworks in the gallery walls or attaching them to wires to convert them into bare-bones electric circuits, he makes works that resemble complex setups for physics experiments and mathematical equations. Neufeld’s installations are meant to remind us that art as such does not explain the world, dispelling the misconception that has art guiding us in making sense of reality. Taking up the traditions of the objet trouvé or the readymade, he instead explores the blanks that alert the beholder to the fact that nothing in the world can be effortlessly understood. Titled Folds and Faults, Florian Neufeldt’s first monograph presents a cross-section of his oeuvre from the past twelve years. With essays by Gerrit Gohlke and Catherine Nichols.
