The German artists sculpts, screws, glues, fixes, straps, wraps all different materials on his master pieces. Shards ofplaster, pieces of concrete left behind on the floor – the discretion of the partsreflects a subtle analysis of space while giving it an unusual character, as unfinished. The artist does not only in the interiors: the structures of entire buildings are wellthought through monumental buildings, which are in tension form. By his choice of clean lines and simple, Karsten Födinger is challenging from bothforms of modernism as an aesthetic construction or public works. His mastery of thematerials on both small and large scale reflects the maturity of this young German artist never exhibited in France. Once again, Palais de Tokyo brings a great artist to a democratic level, so any one can have the experience of being in front of one of Födinger installations.
