In his new group of works, the sculptor Gregor Gaida transforms organic bodies and body parts into polygonal basic bodies. He frequently takes up details of an animal’s body whose form he duplicates and rotates around an axis or a point. Thus, a new self-contained form featuring almost crystalline structures evolves. In the element’s replication, one of the basic conditions of the ornament, Gaida combines the figurative with the abstract. The formerly familiar body thus becomes an ambivalent object of aesthetic reflection, both an appealing and repulsive curiosity which back then had its place in the cabinets of art and wonder.

Gregor Gaida, born in Chorzów / Poland in 1975, lives and works in Bremen, Germany. His current institutional exhibitions were shown at Kunsthalle der Dominikanerkirche Osnabrück and at Deutsches Hygiene Museum Dresden.
