February 22 – April 15, 2007

Leopold Kessler’s works focus on public space, exploring the topography of citiesfrom the traffic signs that structure urban life to the modes of behavior influenced by it. The artist’s interventions aim at squares, paths, street signs or street barriers, which serve as material for his sculptures. Moreover he has repeatedly pointed out the gaps that can be found in the systematic organization of social space.


Leopold Kessler, born in 1976, lives and works in Vienna.
