Kirsten Pieroth

May 5 – June 26, 2005

Kirsten Pieroth uses everyday objects, situations and activities, isolates them from their original settings and inserts them into a different context. This transfer causes an irritation in the interpretation of perception: individual things, which we usually identify according to their form, function, or use, no longer offer this habitual perspective ascribed to them, but instead refer to multiplied readings, strange systems of reference, and absurd chains of association.


Kirsten Pieroth, born in Offenbach/Main in 1970, lives and works in Berlin.
