Mainly working with sculptures and video installations, Elias Cafmeyer creates site-specific installations often in public space or inspired by the use of public space in the context of the city. He sees the city landscape as a metaphor for social construction and focusses on traces of urban development and forms of signage orchestrating mobility. His interventions deal with strategies such as inversion, juxtaposition and contrast, creating a sense of alienation. Apart from his video installations, Cafmeyer often uses raw, industrial material such as metal, untreated wood and concrete.
