Sydney Biennale Connects Here with Everywhere Latest Ocula Report Sydney Biennale Connects Here with Everywhere By Soo-Min Shim, Sydney

Manfred Pernice studied from 1984 to 1987 graphics and painting at the Braunschweig University of Art, from 1988 to 1993 sculpture at the Berlin University of the Arts, 1994 master-class.

From 2004 to 2009 he was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, in 2012 he became a professor for sculpture at the Universität der Künste (University of Fine Arts) in Berlin.

Manfred Pernice's sculptures–primarily boxes and containers with cylindrical or cuboid shapes implying a 'canned world'-have recently become more prismatic, plastic positions. The chipboard, plywood, tile, iron and concrete used in these sculptures are materials primarily associated with handicraft, but when combined with texts, drawings, newspaper clippings, photocopies, everyday objects (sometimes found) and other things, these structures create an open system of references that tap into specific socio-cultural codes, memories, or things that have meaning for a certain site. Manfred Pernice's working methods, which have been described as 'blurring' and 'direction finding,' are practiced with deliberation. Direction finding means capturing a moment within a kind of order that openly gives in, powerless, to the world's complexity-an order that could just as soon produce alternative contexts. Pernice's direction finding locates history telling, sorting, separating, and preserving-also of minor or discarded things-and creates a poetic network of mutual references.

Manfred Pernice was represented in 2001 and 2003 at the Venice Biennale, in 2002 at the Documenta XI Kassel. Since 2007 his works has been regularly exposed at the KölnSkulptur. He participated at the Bienal de São Paulo (2011), the Skulptur Projekte Münster (2007), the Bienal de Sevilla (2006), the Manifesta 3, Ljubljana (2002), the Berlin Biennale (1998) and the Biennale de Lyon (1997)
