Manfred Pernice was born in 1963 in Hildesheim in Germany. He lives and works in Berlin.

His work has taken many different shapes, but all are linked by an interest in sculptural form, an ongoing engagement with systems of display/exhibition, and an examination of cultural and personal modes of spatial orientation. Kubo-Kahla 3 is made from cubes, barrels and paper that are piled together to form a tall tower. The result is like a building of dignified proportions, but with a casual sense of monumentality. His work is able to take objects out of their usual contexts and open up perspectives that enable the viewer to understand both object and context in new ways.

His artistic practice can thus be interpreted as an expansive process in which an investigation of the dynamics of display completes and facilitates the development of new types of non-static objects.
