Alex Chinneck and his knots

Famous for his interventions in public art, the British artist Alex Chinneck unveiled his latest pieces at the German exhibition "Städtische galerie kornhaus" in Kirchheim Unter Teck.

Playing with the architectural aspect of the ancient columns from 450 years of age, the work of art questions the materiality by linking one of the columns into a knot.

"I like to give fluency to typically inflexible things, transcending their material nature," says Alex Chinneck. "The columns are the main feature of the 450-year-old museum and this intervention took the opportunity to challenge the logic and distort the story.I wanted to create the impression that we had changed only what was already physically present in the museum and the work is born through the manipulation, rather than the introduction, of the material, with this approach, the goal was to produce something audacious but sensitive to the context ".
