Piles..." is a series of installations whose visual impact is drawn from "the pleas and prayers of people in Asia who raise cones of wishing stones, a shamanic custom that is older than Buddhism." Here Konrads integrates a more focused sense of hope into the reformation of found natural objects and their surroundings.
The German artist Cornelia Konrads creates hallucinating in situ installations in public spaces, parks and private gardens throughout the world. His work is often punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, when stacked objects (branch, log, stone) seem to be hanging in the air, increasing the temporary nature of the facility.
