The catalog “Objekte (Objects)” presents scupltures by Matias Bechtold. His models of buildings and cities are ironic comments on architecture that celebrate possibility – in a surprising artistic take on feasibility.

The different view through which Matias Bechtold perceives our world is essentially determined by shifts in scale. He miniaturizes modernist architecture. The urban topography put forward in his models allows two perspectives. You can perceive it as a sculpture, as if circling over street canyons at a dizzying height, only to imagine yourself a moment later as an inhabitant of the miniature buildings. Bechtold’s utopias not only provide an overview of the seemingly limitless complexity of a city but also open up unusual perspectives when you go into detail.
