Digital doesn’t get more real than Ken Kelleher’s sculptures
American sculptor Ken Kelleher is specialized in the creation of large scale digital sculptures around the world. Digital works are set into real landscapes like streets, galleries or small places, and the result seems incredibly real.
Seeing his work as a dialogue about what it means to make things, Kelleher allows through his creations not only to create a strong link between men and the world, but also to question the “mysterious and deep nature of things”.
Kelleher investigates the meaning of sculpture as well as the meaning of an object that exists without utilitarian value. “When utilitarian use is taken away from an object, a series of objects or forms, what remains?,” asks the artist, to answer it immediately himself. “I’d say surprise and delight.” He remarks that “there’s an element of surprise when you create something that has never before existed in the world”.
