Last Friday, our resident photographer Sandra Camey visited the opening reception of Micol Assaël‘s ‘Stone Broken Circuit’ at König Galerie. The solo exhibition plays on literal and figurative representations of open circuits, where “currents cannot flow because the path is broken, incomplete or interrupted.” Assaël presents installation and sculptural works reminiscent of electrical diagrams, made from both conductive and nonconductive materials, scattered around the space in a variety of levels. Alongside this, a zigzag book is extended to reveal defective and incomplete technical drawings. The artist immerses her viewers in broken electrical circuits and lost potentials. Drawing on the artist’s desire to make visible the invisible, ‘Stone Broken Circuit’ brings into question notions of perception, connectivity and functionality.
