Wolf von Kries (DE) Following his studies at the University of Fine Arts Berlin and the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Beaux Arts de Paris Wolf von Kries has devel- oped a multidisciplinary practice which includes installation, video, pho- tography, drawing and collage.
Wolf often creates subtle interventions in everyday routines and ordinary objects to suggest alternative ways to read our environment. More concerned with generating a shift of perception than actual physical transformations his approach has shifted over the years to encompass walking, gathering and (re)interpreting or juxtaposing his finds with phenomena of seemingly unrelated fields and disciplines. To this end research residencies in countries all over the planet (last in Mexico, Brazil, South Korea, Armenia and Finland) have become an integral part of his working practice. Recent exhibition projects and presentations have been at the Museum El Eco, Mexico City, House of the Arts Brno, Anatomical Theater Berlin, École Spatiale d ́Architecture de Paris, CEEAC Strassburg, Centre d’Art contemporain La Ferme du Buisson, Marne La Vallee, Instants Chavirés, Montreuil, Simultanhalle, Köln, Kunsthalle Schirn Frankfurt, Kunsthalle Exnergasse Vienna and Tate Modern.
Wolf has been working with PICTURE BERLIN since 2012.
