|Kai Althoff, "Punkt, Absatz, Blümli" (period, paragraph, Blümli), 2011.|
Kai Althoff (1966) is a German visual artist who has shown in exhibitions including the 2004 Venice Biennale and at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. "Punkt, Absatz, Blümli" (period, paragraph, Blümli), 2011, was held at Gladstone Gallery, New York. The exhibition includes soft sculpture figures, paintings and drawings. The painted yellow floor casts an industrial setting for the above horizontal rug painting. The overall installation depicts some fantastic situational narrative - almost a sculptural performance reminiscent of performances by the artist, Joseph Beuys.
