Felix Kiessling

Felix's methodology is perfectly precise

“From a very young age, I have been driven by a spiralling feeling of standing on a planetary sphere without scale.”

Though he confesses to being no mathematician, precision and scale are key elements of Felix Kiessling’s body of work. Many of his pieces experiment with the ideas of space, emptiness, weight and gravitation. Whether it is an installation of rocks that are levitated in the air by a series of strings, or a sundial whose shadow always points to zero, Kiessling executes his ideas with a minimalist aesthetic that stands the test of time. Developing from the popular rock motif that appears in his work, Kiessling used a stone with an equivalent volume of 9.7 liters from Hamburg’s Elbe river as part of his submission for Absolut Art.
