The ghostly artworks of Karsten Födinger sneak into a space in order to disturb it. The discrete nature of the works – shards of plaster and bits of concrete forgotten on the floor – conveys a subtle analysis of the space all the while instilling an eerie feeling, as if it was left unfinished. The artist doesn’t only tamper with interiors: his monumental constructions call into question the entire structure of a building by creating tension between the forms. Karsten Födinger’s installation “Cantilever” will be exhibited at Palais de Tokyo, running from February 18 to March 27.
