Gereon Krebber (born 1973) utilizes such materials as plastic film, burnt wood, construction foam, gelatin, Post-it notes and even preserved pig’s trotters to create astonishing, large-scale, site-specific sculptures that frequently only last for the duration of their exhibition. Here Today, Gone Tomorrow accompanies the artist’s recent exhibition at The Irish Museum of Modern Art.

The sculptures of Gereon Krebber (born 1973) may remind us of something—a cloud, a giant button, a slice of something meatlike—but the everyday materials of which they are composed such as balloons or plastic wrap, are always radically transformed from their original function. Based in London, Krebber regards the spirit of his work as “seriously flippant.”
