The striking aspect of Mirko Schallenberg’s works is the way he stacks everyday objects – into so-called pyramids of things. The artist creates works that give rise to many questions. In his pictures, the viewer discovers stones, food, books, honeycomb, glasses, vases – objects that are usually not associated with each other at all. Nevertheless, the artist succeeds in achieving a harmonious relationship between such things with the aid of specific arrangements.
