Artist talk with Christian Wilke


Thoughtful Intentions

Christian Wilkes project started as an idea of giving care to unwanted waist. Empty Fastgas containers thrown out of cars, leftovers of a new way of getting high, shameful, and hidden. They have a hidden beauty.

Playing with form, colors and context gives a new use and expression, and creates different reactions.

The side table LACK is one of the most common pieces of furniture in the IKEA portfolio and a symbol for the quest of the perfect home. Replacing the original legs with the Victorian shape of the containers gives a new form but with recognizable forms from both worlds. LACK of Lust,

The Chimes is aiming at meeting the properties and sound of Fastgas containers, with the visual expression of bohemian wind chimes usually creating the soundtrack for new age post yoga relaxation, but now with a slightly darker tone…

The project is a mix of personal observations and thoughts, of playful experimentation with form and perception.
