For her first solo exhibition in Belgium, Kirsten Pieroth presents a series of sculptures and installation which look at the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi's first telegraphic experiments. The new work, commissioned by Objectif, delves into the first DIY domestic trials at creating a method for global communication.

Kirsten Pieroth's practice, like many of the subjects of her research, revolves around accidents, imagination and mis/communication. Intrigued by early scientific experiments and the idiosyncrasies of perception, Pieroth's simple gestures pervert mundane objects and events, entangling them in web of new references and systems of association. Her work has been presented in monographic shows at CCA Wattis Institute (San Francisco), 2008, Klosterfelde Gallery (Berlin), 2007, Display (Prague), 2006 and Secession (Vienna), 2006. She has also participated in numerous group shows including in 2008-09: Scorpio's Garden at Temporäre Kunsthalle (Berlin), Little Theatre of Gestures at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Basel) and Malmö Konsthall (Malmö), Friends Of The Divided Mind at Royal College of Art (London), Art Focus 5 at Congress Center (Jerusalem), Yes, No & Other Options - Art Sheffield 08 (Sheffield), Learn To Read at Tate Modern (London). Pieroth lives and works in Berlin.
