David Kroell

1985* Xanten

The focus of his artistic practice is the minimal and process-based sculptural exploration of spaces -
especially elements that do not catch the eye or remain invisible. David Kroell work with spatial interventions, small interventions, remnants, and processes of change. His exhibitions become "material" at the border between space, time/process, and the visitor, sculpturally shaped and left to their inherent
dynamics: walls "shed" themselves during the course of the exhibition, floors trace the movements of the visitors, architectural details are seamlessly - purposelessly - integrated into the room's ceilings, walls
automatically whiten, ect. The consistently "non-object-like" sculptural practice brings the invisible, unseen, and unnoticed into
focus and pursues the idea of the catalytic potential of space - processes of decay and regeneration, of deconstruction and construction, which bring forth the potentialities of space and sharpen perception.

David Kroell, born in 1985 in Xanten, studied Fine Arts at the University of the Arts (UdK) Berlin under
the guidance of Prof Gregor Schneider and Prof Rebecca Horn.
In addition to receiving a work grant from the Kunstfonds Bonn, he obtained project funding from the Academy of Arts Berlin, the Artist House Lukas Fellowship, the Neustart Kultur Scholarship, and participated in residency programs in Vienna, Kiev and Istanbul. His works have been showcased in solo and group exhibitions, including venues such as Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, Adhoc Bochum, Haus am Kleistpark, Bourouina Gallery Berlin, Künstlerhaus Dortmund, b-05 Montabaur, Kunstverein Heidelberg, and Kunsthalle Bremerhaven.
