With his work “This Apple Tastes Like Our Living Room Used To Smell” (from the collection of Bill and Ruth True) artist and architect Alexander Schweder La shows architecture as it already exists: in transition and transitory. The mold shakes the pillars of the institution and our feeling of security in the world. This rot reveals that our bodies and the buildings they occupy are horrifyingly connected. Yet, as Schweder La’s work posits, it is only through this demise that other things can emerge.
“This Apple Tastes Like Our Living Room Used To Smell” will be added between April 23rd and 25th to the exhibition “Structural Studies”. On April 28th 2012, 4 pm, Alex Schweder La, Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge, Sam Chermayeff and Toshihiko Mitsuya will talk with DAZ curator Matthias Böttger about strengths and weaknesses of architecture.
