Johannes Albers: new sculptures at Other Criteria London

October 19, 2016 by Mary

New unique sculptures by artist Johannes Albers are currently on show at Other Criteria London.


In his new work Johannes Albers reminds us of those forgotten places, beneath the stairs, under a rug, in the gutter where a silent story continues. Some dust and random objects, an old shoe, what goes on after we are gone. When we die, the bacteria in our body flourishes. Life goes on after all of us. It is those places that Albers wants to reproduce and remind us about with his new work.

As Nietzsche wrote, "Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling solar systems, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing. That was the most arrogant and mendacious minute of "world history," but nevertheless, it was only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths, the star cooled and congealed, and the clever beasts had to die."[1]

But what a minute we are having?
