FRANK KUNERT

A Grotesque Universe

Surreal Scenes between Tragedy and Comedy

Kunert’s bizarre wonderlands relate stories of the depths of life. His constructions are reflections of our fears and needs, but also of our desires. They bring home the absurdity of the everyday: the grotesque attempts to organize our lives, the disappearance of old traditions, the way we deal with one another and with our history—Kunert’s small masterpieces harbour any number of things. He does not however do all this with an incriminating finger, but with a subtle, at times offbeat sense of humor. Buildings say something about people. They are the expression of our culture, our past, our present, and our future. The inner worlds of homes were in invariably are reflections of social zeitgeist and contain much of what goes on inside and around us. (...) Frank Kunert lends the traces of our past an appreciative framework, and his small worlds are an unconventional declaration of love to the hosts of stories of everyday life—our stories.
