Every society accumulates contradictions amidst their ideals. Dietrich Wegner uses those contradictions, putting opposites together in large-scale sculpture that feed on the friction between two things that should not make sense together. He creates images that are safe and unsettling, abject and beautiful. He shows us how a mushroom cloud can resemble a tree house, an anus a vortex, a suicide bomber a vulnerable human being.
