SWISS ART AWARDS 2014


 Daniel V. Kellers's works frequently refer to architectural elements and materials, albeit extracted from their original context, and mainly seem to question their appearance. Deriving from an ongoing investigation into the urban, man-made environment, Keller accumulates the generic visual language of our contemporary constructed surroundings. The tension between urban planning and organically grown landscapes becomes ­apparent in his works, which infallibly copy techniques used for outdoor design and imitate natural structures.
The approach to the surface is of great importance in Daniel V. Keller's work. Meticulously covering his sculptures in bathroom tiles, for instance, he draws attention to the façade of residential environments, extracting day-to-day materials their normal setting like a freeze frame. He invites the viewer to take a peek behind the scenes by turning materials inside-out, revealing their artificiality, preserving their characteristics and making them inert.
