Bridges and Walls Defy Gravity in Cornelia Konrads’ Atmospheric Site-Specific Installations

A bridge in the middle of a Montana forest appears eternally suspended mid-collapse, and a wooden dock curls up out of the water in just a couple of artist Cornelia Konrads’ site-specific interventions (previously). Using found materials like driftwood in the towering “tourbillon” or tapping into the regional vernacular like the ceramic tiles and stone in “refuge,” the artist re-interprets existing spaces by embracing the tension between harmony and chaos in nature.
