Alicja Kwade produces art that cannot really be classified into an established genre. Rather, her photos are simple to the point of complexity, inducing curiosity in an audience.

Alicja Kwade draws her inspiration from ideas in books to world news. She has her own breed of curiosity that shows throughout her many galleries, which include videos and sculptures. What sets her apart from the rest is that one may never know where her next masterpiece will be. A running theme in her designs is a mirroring effect where objects that are identical (or nearly identical) sit together in duality. For example, she'll place two lamps of different shades perfectly opposite one another, making for an impeccably symmetrical piece.
