Kai Althoff's Untitled depicts a lone skateboarder, a symbol of youth culture captured in midair in a moment of exhilaration and anxiety, independence and risk. The work features striped fabric and luminous orange paint to outline the shape of the skateboard ramp, continuing his highly inventive exploration of new painting techniques. Kai Kein Respekt, Althoff's first solo U.S. museum exhibition, was held at the ICA in 2004.
