Alex Chinneck has tied a 450-year-old column into a knot!

Artist Alex Chinneck is famed for his sculptures work especially his outdoor pieces which included putting a hige rip on the side of building last year. The architectural intervention, titled ‘Birth, death and a midlife crisis’, features in the artist’s new exhibition at the German Museum of Kirchheim Unter Teck. Accompanying work includes a wooden broom leaning against the wall, also knotted. The exhibition is now open and runs until 8 April 2018.

The knots are Chinneck’s first indoor sculptures in five years and follow a succession of outdoor projects that include a 35-metre inverted electricity pylon, a melting house constructed from 7,500 wax bricks, and a hovering stone building for London’s Covent Garden Piazza.The artist also introduced a straight column, in addition to the knotted pillar, to give the intervention symmetry. Both are materially indistinguishable from the historic pillars that they mimic.
