Pawel Althamer & Lou Cantor, CLOUDS / 2013

The work is a large inflatable sculpture in which visitors will be able to enter. The sculpture was created with the kind support of Hug & von Below and will be presented for the first time 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 exhibited at the Ludwig Museum in Köln, MUSEION in Bolzano, the Guggenheim Berlin, and at the 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 of the collective 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.
