Aglaia Konrad

Konrad has in her photographic work developed an unique way of documenting the escalation of global urbanization. Her archive holds thousands of pictures that focus on infrastructure and architecture, an almost boundless collection that highlights the relationship between society and place. The images allow the viewer to participate in scenarios with blurring and fluctuating lines between the old and the new, between architecture and nature, between power and symbols. In Shaping Stones Konrad combines found architecture with created architecture, anonymous buildings with acclaimed, and ruins of ancient times with modern archaeological excavations. By formally equating opposites, she suggests an existential and timeless world.
