2011 ArtPrize Entry

Combining elements of biomorphic and geometric abstraction, Alois Kronschlaeger will create a giant spire composed entirely of aluminum mesh, wood and poured paint. Spanning three floors of of an abandoned commercial building hosted by SiTE:LAB on the corner of Division and Fulton in Grand Rapids, Spire will be impressive in scale and subtle in its aesthetics occupying a central, vertical space. The work will look and feel as if it were sprouting from the basement, growing through the space and eventually shooting through the roof awakening the building with new life.
