German artist Cornelia Konrads specializes in constructing site-specific sculptures that use found material to enhance the natural beauty of a location. Similar to Zander Olsen’s “Tree, Line” Konrad’s work brings a touch of the surreal to the natural landscape. In this series she continues a theme of suspended levitation, capturing inanimate object at precise moment when gravity appears to lets out. To look at one of these installations, you can’t help to feel like floating.
It fairly easy to see how the logs are propped up below, but how she manages to get those sticks and snowballs to stay up in the air is beyond me. Perhaps she “just happened” to stumble across a reel of fishing wire at each location.
