Benjamin Bergmann – Never Ever

The works of Benjamin Bergmann make bold assertions, conduct thought experiments and sensitively play with ideas in which the absurd often takes center stage. Their basic nature is sculptural, and they display an essentially performative character. “For me, the beautiful thing about absurdity is the sustainability of the confusion. At some point, you find yourself toying with the idea that a totally absurd world would perhaps be more beautiful.”

Accordingly, when Bergmann installs a basketball hoop at dizzying heights, what he’s setting up thereby is a metaphorical and de facto experiment that sets its goal so high that there’s a higher likelihood of failure than success.
