Manfred Pernice

‘bin’ blau, gut‘bin’ braun (bad)

Manfred Pernice's (b. 1963 in Hildesheim, lives and works in Berlin) practice moves between autonomous sculptural objects and spatial installation. His objects generally take the form of vessels, above all cans and containers, which take a position in space. This means that both everyday or anonymous architectural elements, and art-theoretical discourse about sculpture and the plinth, act as framing elements for Pernice. For his cylindrical, cuboid and prismatic forms he utilizes materials such as chipboard, plywood, iron or concrete, which generally call up associations with the imperfect and the provisory, and in this way leave possible approaches and transformations open. The editions here offered by Neue Berliner Kunstverein are drawn from the artist's “A-series”, with the title ‘bin’ blau, gut and a corresponding “B-series”, ‘bin’ braun (bad), which take the form of rubbish bins.
