Holger Kalberg | The Family

Holger Kalberg | The Family
Posted: Tue, 2014-07-29 14:03

Holger Kalberg’s ('01) latest exhibition, THE FAMILY, explores the legacy of high Modernism and its related utopian models of thinking, presenting new paintings and sculptures that examine and critique modes of Modernist vocabulary.
Kalberg describes his own relationship with Modernism as “conflicted appreciation,” often engaging with the aesthetics of the mode while at the same time critiquing the model. The works presented in this exhibition follow Kalberg’s desire for a renewed reflection of Modernist formalism through an investigation into the artist's own studio practice, motivation, and early influences, especially Joseph Beuys and his socialist/utopian agenda.
