BREI
SMAK, Ghent
15 October 2011 - 15 January 2012


In his exhibition, called ‘Brei’, the German artist Manfred Pernice (1963, Hildesheim) is showing an ensemble of recent work centred on his monumental installation ‘Tutti’. Pernice’s sculptures look like replicas or large-scale models of world cities, flows of traffic and patterns of consumption. They are three-dimensional reflections of actual situations and as such illustrate the way our society is shaped. Forms, materials and reciprocal connections merge to form one experiential space – a single associative, wryly poetical and yet strictly orchestrated ‘brei’ (German for ‘mush’).
