“cement & weather stands at the axes of two polar modes of thinking: between the intellectual understanding that all matter is interconnected in an infinite process of morphosis, and the inescapable cultural tendency to define matter by the immediate. Philipp Modersohn stages a sculptural spectrum that oscillates between both polar modes of perception and moving through the exhibition is similar in experience to strolling through a Baroque Garden. As you drift away from the central manor, so to speak, the obvious reflection of man’s desires gradually disintegrates from the garden, opening to the increasingly autonomous and alien.”
