Dutch artist Alon Levin's latest exhibition Postponed Modernism is on view at KLEMM'S, Berlin. The gallery describes his wooden structures as:
Philosophical, economical, and social theories of progress and growth, organizing principles, and ideas of modernist utopias are some of the recurring themes in his work. Levin examines the images, metaphors, and symbols that represent these concepts, and explores the contradictions and failings of their systems. The work can be seen as a narration about the buildup, breakdown, and possibly the reinvention of meaning itself.
