Kathryn Andrews | Circus Empire
08.06.2019 – 04.08.2019

KÖNIG GALERIE is pleased to present "Circus Empire," its first exhibition of large-scale sculptures and wall objects by Kathryn Andrews from June 7 to August 4, 2019. The Los Angeles-based artist transforms the gallery's historic building into a massive circus tent support. Inside, interactive artworks mash up references to empire, past and present, alongside symbols of decline, excess, failure and rot. With biting wit in the form of materially rich, absurd objects, Andrews questions the current state of civilization and its representations, while exposing the failures of its never-ending fascination with dominance.
