Alicja Kwade #3

Alicja Kwade's studio, Berlin, 2015.

"Artist Alicja Kwade loves weekends because that’s when she gets to spend time alone in her spacious studio in Berlin to read, research and draw sketches of her sculptures. In the 1920s, the building was a film studio where the iconic title ‘The Blue Angel’, or ‘Der Blaue Engel’, starring Marlene Dietrich was shot. Nowadays, it’s jam-packed with curious objects that seem to take a life of their own.
Walking through her light-filled studio on a quiet Saturday afternoon, we found a giant rusty gramophone horn – taller than us – resting in a wooden box as well as countless sheets of mirrors leaning on walls. Tabletops were overflowing with glass tubes and trinkets while the floors were littered with oddly bent metal rods and materials that seemed to come from outer space. We talked to Kwade recently about how she began working with sculpture, where she draws inspiration from and how a lot of it happens through meaningful coincidences…
