The concepts of transition and transformation and their relation to color, forms and matter can be described as main subjects of Sebastian Wickeroth’s recent works. By combining elements of painting, sculpture and architecture, Geometrical shapes are in deconstruction and seem to join together.

Corrosion counters the monochrome perfection, generating a narrative. The ruinous pictorial space surveys suggest logic and causality of incidences that never happened. It`s not about the destruction of a sculpture, but to create decomposition as an equal mode of construction. Seemingly accidental and unregulated occurrences emerge as composed structures.

Born in 1977, Sebastian Wickeroth currently lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany. He studied at the Kunstakademie Münster, at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts of Geneva, and at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. He has been recently appointed research associate at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Dortmund.
