Contemporary Fine Arts Berlin, 28 August â€“ 9 October 2010.
Open perspectives and compact volumes, liberality and small-scale precision, light forms and heavy metal â€“ the sculptures by Thomas Kiesewetter live from dissonances.
Thomas Kiesewetter began his artistic career at the end of the 1980s with study at the Berlin University of Fine Arts. While devoting himself primarily to painting, he has been working sculpturally since 1999. In New York where Kiesewetter lived at the beginning of the millennium his sculptural vocabulary defined.
Solo show at Sies & HÃ¶ke gallery, Dusseldorf March 12th â€” April 10th, 2010
With Thomas Kiesewetter (*1963) Sies + HÃ¶ke presents a new member of the gallery, who has already exhibited largely within an international context. It is the Berlin based artistâ€™s third solo show in Germany presenting eight new works. Kiesewetters sculptures consist of bent, folded, riveted and welded pieces of metal, plastic or cardboard that he coats with monochrome colors and presents as abstract assemblages on self-made pedestals.

Materiality and form are central concerns in Kiesewetterâ€™s work. Scraps of sheet metal bolted together and painted, his sculptures have an architectural sensibility and a modernist aesthetic. The funky constructions sometimes seem make-shift yet achieve a precise balance and a strong and whimsical presence.
