Tonio Kröner’s paintings, sculptures and installations evoke surrealist qualities: shifts in scale, from the realistic to the abstract or exaggerated, wild in combinations of the disparate. By sampling from given realities, he forces dynamic thought. His practice comprises a visual, mental, and bodily activity that connects the interstices of painting and sculpture, as well as abstract and concrete modes of representation. The body’s status in a « digitalized » space is scrutinized, as is its use as commercial and allegorical images.
For Something Stronger Than Me*, Tonio Kröner used WIELS’ furniture - two meeting room tables and a metal stand - in order to install enigmatic characters: three puppets playing with space around the works of other artists.
Tonio Kröner is a German artist, based in Munich. He was a resident at WIELS in 2014.
